Inside Play

“make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands”  1 Thessalonians 4:11 NIV

Inside games
Posting games make a box with a slot so your child can post some old envelopes. Keys always fascinate children, give them some old ones to play with. Play copy cat games like Simon says. Bubble Play – blow them and catch/chase them. Box play- get in them, wear them stack them, nest them, etc. Play with magnets. Draw with chalks.

Playdough
One of the most fun things for a toddler to play with is Playdough. Below are two recipes you can try:

Microwave Playdough
Ingredients:
