6 indoor games to play with your toddler
1. The Harry Potter Magic Spell
Take 3 paper cups.
Invert them and place a coin under one of the three cups and just shuffle them. Ask your baby to figure out which cup holds the coin.
Just try slipping the coin under the carpet or somewhere while doing this trick to see your little wonder’s amazement in learning the coin has disappeared with magic.
2. Water and Freeze
Play your little baby’s favorite rhymes and ask her to dance to the songs. Stop the song randomly and say freeze and your child is supposed to stand still.
When you say water, she can start dancing again.
It is a very nice game and is really fun filled too.
3. The Circus Master
You must be aware as how much your kid loves to walk on a straight line. Just pull out a masking tape.
Paste it on the floor in straight lines. Ask your kid to walk straight on those tapes. To make it more interesting you could ask him or her to walk forward and backward or hop on the line or balance with one foot on the line.
Gather all your old plastic bottles. Paste a tape in a straight line as a start line. Take a medium sized ball and start bowling. It is a lot of fun and your lolo would love to play this.

Collect some miscellaneous items like a comb, a bowl, a glass, a pen, a book etc… Let your child see all these objects first. Then, ask him to close eyes as you make sound from each of the objects and he is required to identify it.
6. Blowing bubbles
