Not that I actually even knew it was St Pat's day today, or celebrate it, AT ALL. But it was raining/windy/freezing today and so indoor activities had to be thought of. And I looked at all my "Every occasion/All holidays" decorations set and though, "I'm sure the design blogs I've been reading have been making shamrocks and the such lately. Maybe St Patricks's day is coming up."
Our other activities included cutting up paper print out pictures into puzzles, then tearing them to shreds, then cleaning them up, soccer/basketball (2-year-old style, with cushions as the goals and either a green beach ball or a pink $2 shop ball and the adult on their knees), a reading session, a few computer games (our favourite toddler sites here, here, here and here), we let Theo ride his bike inside and he has a growing posse of imaginary friends (Charlie, Lola, Mum [which is not me. I'm "Mummy". Totally different], Chickenrun and even Lupe, his nursery teacher at church, "came over to play" today). In the afternoon there was an hour or so without rain so we bundled up and went down to play at the park, wet leaves and all.
What do you do on rainy/windy/freezing days to pass the time?
