October 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 187

What is something that every toddler mom dreads? Rain. Lots of it. Though the puddles are great to stomp in when the rain tapers off, entertaining toddlers indoors for hours, sometimes days, on end is quite challenging. Toddlers love to run around in the great outdoors. The more time they spend outside, the happier they are. Supper, laundry and house cleaning all take a back burner when the little tot wants to go out. The more time you spend outdoors, the harder it is when you become coped up inside. Not to fear. Here are 15 great indoor activities to do with your toddler. Perhaps you'll have some much fun with them, you'll stay inside even when the sun starts peeking through the clouds.
