Hi Nishi, u can show pictures of unique shaped leaves like that of peepal tree, papaya tree, neem etc. Take ur son out to park and while walking there ask him to identify the leaves and trees. U can show a cannonball tree and it's flower. Different types of flowers are interesting to watch. Around 4 o'clock in the evening when traffic is not that much u can take him out and allow him to ride his cycle. He"ll enjoy a lot. Take him to the terrace and fly a kite when it is windy. U can buy a beach set and take him to a park where sand is available. Making sand castle and moulds on sand will be interesting. U can also take him to adventure sports nearby, a one day picnic etc on weekends. U can also keep food and water for birds in terrace. Bird watching will also be interesting. Spotting a Garuda among other kites will be of great fun. U can ask him to take photos of birds drinking water. If u spend time with ur child outdoors it will be of great fun. Enjoy!

Hi Nishi! I would like to add to what other parents have suggested. u cud dress up ur child like a superhero and u cud play the role of someone in problem. or there cud b other role plays like doc patient, teacher student etc. children love to b on the other side of the table. u cud cook simple things with u r child's assistance such as sandwiches, burgers etc. u cud read story books together such as Magic pot, champak, etc. another options is to play board games with ur child. or u cud make crafts together such as a square shaped robot or rectangle shaped fire engine. u cud collect old pictures and make a collage. u cud cut out shapes or pictures now make greeting cards. or prepare for a forthcoming occasion. i believe at home these funfilled activities cud be done comfortably.
