Winter weather combined with high energy toddlers can be a recipe for cabin fever. The Bear needs to run, so I make little indoor obstacle courses for him on a daily basis. We run laps around the loop (living room-kitchen-dining room), and climb over pillows and under chairs.
Lately his favorite has been the over/under/in between course. I set up one obstacle to go over (a big pillow or toddler chair), one to go under (his slide), and one to go in between (two couch pillows). As he runs through we yell Over! Under! In Between!, then he goes from the other end and we reverse it. He LOVES it and will do it over and over again. The Pearl girl thinks it is hilarious and giggles like crazy watching her big brother. He is grasping spacial concepts and getting physical activity at the same time. Everybody wins.
How do you keep your toddlers entertained during the winter?
