Ideas to do with my 19 mo old girl inside besides tv!

My 19 month old baby girl loves to watch tv. I am trying to get down her tv time to only an hour a day but sometimes it’s the only thing that can calm her down and give me a moment to clean up! She will play while the tv is on with her toys but she does love to sit and watch. We have tried different crafts and I’ve tried different toys. Unfortunately it’s too cold for me to bring her outside and around other kids ☹️ any ideas?

    Try not to worry about it too much! My 16 month old loves music! On you tube there is a series of great songs for little ones called “Super Simple Songs” my little one has now started singing some of the songs! It’s great!!!!

    Maybe try having her clean up too. Give her 1 job at a time. Please put this in the trash can. Please put this on the coffee table.

    TV under 2 is not advisable. It's good that you're minimizing it! Here are some ideas! - yoga (in your home - use google or youtube or xbox for free yoga videos) mayhe this can replace existing screen time! - give her wooden spoon and pots and pans and tell her to make music - ask her to rearrange something (let her succeed!) - sensory play (colored rice mush, edible 'playdough', etc)

    Tv is okay for when you have no choice (ie either she screams The whole time while you try to cook dinner, or she watches some tv). I would look up the hands on as we grow blog, she has lots of great homemade activities for this age and it’s cheap and affordable stuff usually already at home.
