Occupying a toddler on rainy days

Hello every one I'm a single mom with an 18 month boy we live in Florida so he gets a lot of yard and outdoor play now it's raining all the time how can I get him playing indoors with out crying to go out all the time. We don't want him stuck on TV or tablet all day

    Is there a local library you can go to? Some times they have programs for toddlers, the children’s area typically has toys and you can also just sit and read all the books they have. Also, I follow @busytoddler on Instagram and she has a bunch of indoor activity ideas. There’s a ton of other accounts like hers with ideas. So far I just follow hers though.

    How about indoor water play or even water play in your sunroom during rainy weather?? Also crafting (finger paints, coloring, etc) is so much fun for kids. If all else fails let him play in the rain!! 😁

    We like to get a roll of kraft paper and cover the entire coffee table, then get out the crayons, markers, stamps, stickers, water paints, you name it, and go to town. My 18m still puts crayons in his mouth from time to time, but we can generally keep ahead of him.
