It’s raining. The weather is miserable. You need to wait for the cable man. It’s time to find some indoor activities with a toddler before you all lose your mind.
Let’s be honest. The thought of being cooped up indoors with no place to escape to is hard. Coming up with a bunch of ideas to fill an entire day can be a monumental task.
Toddlers are hard, man.
If I don’t have some kind of plan, the wheels can fall off the train before noon. And no one wants that.
I’ve been there. With winter coming up, it’s really important that I get together a list of indoor activities with a toddler before a big snow storm hits and we’re stuck.
