  1. These are some great ideas! We have done a few, and now I have some more ideas. My kids and I like to play hide and seek, adults included. We also do dance parties, put on concerts for stuffed animals, and if nothing else break out a movie night. Anything to help get some energy, sillies, and creativity out of them is a win!

  2. These look like so much fun. I just discovered that my 17 month old loves dough, so I'm going to do a lot more of that. I wonder how he will be able to resist peanut butter play dough though? haha It looks good enough to eat. Pinned!
