My LO is obsessed with sticker books! He sits quietly for a long time just peeling off stickers. I had no idea that sticker books even existed until my SIL gave me some. What kinds of things keep your LO busy while indoors? I have tried the painting\water color books but he is still too young for that. Also too young for playdough, he just wants to eat it.
Isaac loves to draw with chalk. We have a couple of surfaces in our house that I painted with chalkboard chalk and we also have an easel that has chalkboard on one side and he loves doing that. He also loves puzzles although he can't really do them yet. He loves stickers too. He's really into imaginary play too....he loves playing with the play kitchen, playing dress up, playing with Mr. Potato Head, etc.
Maggie's also big into colouring, and puzzles galore - she's doing 12 piece puzzles completely on her own now, and working on the more challenging 25 piece puzzles now. Stickers that wind up everywhere BUT the sticker book (they are fast becoming the bane of my existence), dancing and music. She loves this electric keyboard she got from her great grandma for her birthday. And Rock band Elmo. She also still really loves her books and is getting better with watching movies for longer periods of time.
She's also big into playing with her dolls and taking care of them. She's also doing dress up now and playing with her kitchen set. She's using playdough, and doing arts and crafts at school too. you just have to be prepared for big mess.

She loves her train table, doll house, blocks- even paper planes! She also enjoys playing with her sister when Big Sis isn't picking on her.
BTW I saw a great tip for those stickers you get from the doctor's office: sticking them to the free magnets we always end up getting from various places. Just stick them on and trim to fit It helps them stick around longer (sorry pun not intended!)
