April Showers Bring...The Need for Indoor Activities...

It's raining, it's pouring, the baby is snoring...but your toddler is running around like a madman.  You haven't been able to go outside all day because of the weather and now cabin fever is setting in.  Here's a few clever activities that might keep your little one at bay for (hopefully) more than a few minutes.

Those old cardboard boxes in the garage or basement can easily be transformed into just about anything...a post office, a kitchen, a ship, a drive in theater.  A 9yr old made quite the news story just days ago for making his own arcade out of boxes.  You could at least win coolest mom of the day award for doing the same thing.
Or what about angry birds and bowling?  Didn't think you could do anything like that inside the house, did you?

And then of course if you are trying to wind your little one down so that maybe, just maybe he'll take a nap too...there's always storytime :)

Good luck-and please let it be sunny tomorrow!
