    Question 16 Month Old Inside Activities?

    In this cold weather Im running out of fun things to do with my son. What are some fun activities to do with a 16 month old (who puts EVERYTHING in his mouth! lol)? What are some crafts/games/activities etc... All ideas are welcome! Im throwing my first idea of homemade playdough!

    Hmm, maybe not if he puts everything in his mouth, but I used to fill a large rectangular plastic container (like two feet by 1.5 feet by a foot high or something??) with uncooked rice. It was like a sandbox for indoors. I threw in a bunch of plastic containers, funnels etc for her to play with. She loved it! Rice would get everywhere, but it was in our kitchen and it swept up easily

    Rice is awesome! You can colour it with food colouring and a little rubbing alcohol

    Water play
    Bring snow in and play with it wearing mitts
    Crayons and markers
    Finger paints
    Make jello and let him play with it ( my kids LOVED this)
    Songs and rhymes
    Musical instruments (you can make some with pasta, rice, old nuts and bolts inside water bottles. Use a hot glue gun to close the top)

    So many things!!

    I used to have a great toddler activity book but I think it's gone to a new home now. I bet if you searched toddler activities on pintrest you would get loads of other ideas as well! Forts were always a big hit as well!
