We sometimes go to the local pool in the am or pm, but think that would be hard with your age ranges.

Rest of the time I don't try to organize the time too much as my toddler plays well on his own. However if you pull out the play doh, paint or craft, he is thrilled and will stick to that for an hour or so. 18/19 months is a hard age. You'll find in a few months it will be much easier and the baby will be on more of a schedule too.
Yea, I don't want to schedule him to death. But being alone, by 3-4 he is bored to pieces.
I am looking into A Beka preschool stuff for 2's. They have a art work book that might help me.
