what activities do you do with your child throughout the day?
Painting, baking, preschool workbook, park, backyard and play with chalk and her bike.
Just started teaching her how to play board games. :)
play play and play some more! she's only 7 months old.
During the week our 5 1/2 year old is in school from like 8:30 to 4.
So it's just our 1 1/2 year old. We dance, tickle, and cuddle, mostly. And she likes to bring me books and climb up into my lap to be read to. And then, halfway through the book, she likes to get down to go get a new book to bring.
On the weekends when both kids are home all day, it's pretty much the same. DS is pretty independent so he's in his room or he gets some video game or TV time. Sometimes we do flash cards, sometimes we hang out together and eat popcorn and watch a movie when DD is in bed.
We play! :D Toys, etc.
We play, read books, eat, make cookies...mostly just fun stuff lol
We do school, we play, we clean, we read books, we run errands, we make crafts, etc.
We play and my 3 year old goes to school twice a week, my 9 month old still naps so i usually clean around that time and then we make lunch play some more read books and dinner bath and bedtime.
my sons 2.5 we color, building blocks, cook, read, tv time, nap time, he likes to play by himself and with the dogs. we havent been going outside to play as much cause im due in 2.5 weeks and dont have the energy to chance him around.
I'm not a SAHM, however I only work 3 days a week so I'm mostly here with DS :) He's 15 months and we just play all day, take naps, eat, play some more.
Baby Gaga and TV! Obviously! ;) jk I need to find activities too. I know someone else in the world must have an 18 month old and a 3 year old....i dont feel like we do anything but make a huge mess and clean all day! I hate the winter..
i feel really bad. we live in a apartment and the closest park to us always has druggies sitting on benches cursing and out of their minds. i feel like hes always stuck inside bored and i dont like seeing him in front of the tv. i try reading with him all the time he just doesnt enjoy it. i bought some pipe wire and construction paper to make little crafts but he gets over it so fast and just wants to play video games. and just like with crafts, hes the same way with coloring. he gets bored after 10 minutes :?

Sensory bins! We're in an apartment right now and have the same problem. Sensory bins save my sanity.
play, uses the jumper, i read to her sometimes when im not too tired. dont want to fall asleep reading a baby book lol.. not much you can do with a 7 month old like you could with a 2 year old lol.
we practice her crawling since she's now rocking back and forth. try to put out a toy to make her move for it. she'll learn on her own, but its still fun to do before she gets cranky after an hour then goes to sleep until her next feeding. And it repeats from there pretty much.
