Need inspiration ! What can I do with DD's, 4 and 21 months ?

My DD's are so bored, I'm stuck with what to do with them already and we're only 2 weeks into the hols.

I'm nearly 39 weeks pregnant so am pretty limited as to what I can physically do and tbh, I'm a bit nervous about going too far 'just in case'.

On Monday we went out to the park, fed the ducks, played football etc and yesterday we had the paddling pool out in the garden and played for hours but today we've done very little, colouring, played bubbles in the garden and taken the stabilisers off of DD1's bike (because she's too big for stabilisers now she tells me) but now i've done it it's dawned on me she's actually quite heavy to hold up while learning to balance. She wants to go out to the park to practice more on her bike but I can't physically hold her on her bike and either push DD2 in buggy or hold her hand if she walks.

ARRRGGGG I just feel really shit, they are bored and it's not fair on them to be stuck inside

Would be great Moondog but I don't have anyone to go with as all my friends work and I can't take both DD's by myself as all under 8's have to be supervised by 1 adult each

Get paddling pool out again?
Never underestimate importance of kids entertaining themselves though. V healthy.

Mine are about the same age and have just had a long play in the bath, because it's rainy here. Plenty of bath toys and bubbles. I even got them to wash my hair which they thought was very funny... I ended up getting drenched wink

Don't worry too much - you are allowed to just hang out in late pregnancy. Your DDs won't need years of Freudian psychoanalysis to overcome the trauma of not having an exciting new entertainment every day during their summer holiday when Mummy was having a baby smile.

Buy some new DVDs and stick them in front of the TV and you go to bed for a rest.

Good luck with the birth.
