Paint brush and water: “paint” the sidewalk or fence with a paintbrush and small bucket of water. Your little one could easily spend a half an hour painting and there is no mess to clean up.

Laundry time: Little ones love to help with sorting laundry. Match up all the socks!

Their comments section produced lots more ideas:
Finger painting with pudding, play with dried rice, treasure hunts, pots and pans, cardboard boxes, shaving cream and corn meal, toilet paper tubes, A shovel, a hose and a pile of dirt, sheets, and so much more.
