After the holidays, we find that the new toys become old, the busy schedules fall silent, and all the holiday activities have been done and enjoyed. Its still cold, wet and not friendly outside. We get cabin fever faster than I can poor my coffee, so out of sheer desperation, I’ve come up with some fun and light-hearted indoor activities my boys love!

My Top 5 Unconventional, Indoor Activities For Busy Toddlers:

Pillow Fight:

This really ends up being a pillow attack on myself. The boys love playing on the bed, throwing the pillows around and basically getting to show me their muscles and strength by nailing me in the face. The best part about this game is they really get some energy out. That is pretty much the goal with every activity: make them tired.

How I am Teaching My Toddler to Read

Pizza Pizza!

I had this idea while we were running to one of our favorite grocery stores to grab a slice of pizza. The line was really long, and we were past our nap times. I decided we’d make our own pizzas at home. We got the sauce, cheese, pepperonis and pre-made crust (sorry, not rolling or making dough. Maybe next time). They loved this! I gave them a small bowl of sauce to spread with a spoon on their crust, then a bowl of cheese to sprinkle on top. It wasn’t the longest activity, but they were more excited to eat their pizza when they made it themselves. You can also grab these pizza kits that are super fun too!

Toddler Bootcamp:

Yep, I put them to work. Rather than have them bouncing off the walls and jumping on the counters, I dictate their exercise. I tell them they are army soldiers, and they have to get their muscles strong for the war and bad guys (this totally works!). Then, I demonstrate some Burpees, a bear crawl, a crab crawl, jump squats and more to force them into fatigue. I tickle, chase and do my best to keep them as excited as possible, which results in some tired pups. Bonus if you do it with them to get your workout in too!

Vacuum Fun:

This one I love because it helps me clean. I sweep piles of dust, dirt and crumbs into piles, and the toddlers take turns using the hose to suck up the piles. They love it, and it is more effective than a broom pan. Being in control of the hose and watching little things get sucked up fascinates them. Mine can also do under the couch cushions. Lots of grossness happens under there, and they are so excited to suck it all up!

Bat Cave or Tent:

I create a tent by throwing a blanket over their small kid table. I leave one end open for them to go in and out of. They can climb on it, hide in it and protect their cave from bad-guy invasion. As you can see, this is a constant theme in our house. I also give them snacks in there and some books for quiet time to keep their interest longer.

January is a hard month to get through after the holidays, but with terrible weather. So, we make the most of it with lots of inside fun! Hope these help keep you all as busy as can be!

 

I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.

A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.

Here is what one mama emailed me on the program:

“I absolutely love the program! Just got finished with workout 4 and I’m dying😂 I can only do these 2x thru and my second round is pretty funny to see I’m sure😉! I will work up to 3x:-) By the way, your little boy angel in the videos is too precious and makes me smile! My boys have been doing these with me as well🙌🏼!

The information and the eating plan are both fantastic. I was so happy to hear that great waynof calorie counting when nursing! I have gotten my 3 day average and now I’m going to reduce by 100 calories today! Thanks so much!!
I haven’t had a chance to recommend to postpartum moms yet but I will soon!! 😘

Here is what another mama posted in the Facebook Group:

Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help! Currently eating pictures lunch while writing this ​”

This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!

Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !

Enroll in the course before the price goes up after July 4th!

I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
