Check if there are swimming pools which will cater to toddlers.. There is one in Sembakkam, but not sure whether they cater to toddlers or not.. Skating is also available there.. but you have to check if toddlers are allowed..
Take them to places where they can relate to and play.. Zoo, parks are good options.. temples.. may be the kid will not be able to appreciate completely as it is too young to understand that concept.. however, taking them is good as it inculcates the habit early in life…
You can take them to the beach, where they have a horse ride.
The Anna Centenary library in Guindy is also open for kids now.. you can take her there.
Any cartoon movie in a theatre is good, provided your daughter sits through the movie.. else you will get exhausted..
I usually try to take my daughter on weekends outside… works out atleast in a month.
I took her to the zoo once, beach once, semmozhi poonga in cathedral road, anna centenary library, temple in the past few months.
Some were suggesting Kartwheel in Mahalingapuram ,Vanilla place in mylapore or Hansel & Gretel in Tnagar.. so planning to take my kid in the next available opportunity..
Also most of the malls nowadays have space for kids to play.. kids love these like crazy.. to name a few.. abirami mega mall, ampa skywalk, express avenue etc.,
Also amusement parks do interest kids.. but kids cannot enter all rides..
Crocodile park is another option that you have..
Usually take her to feed fish in a nearby temple pond.. This is my easiest option out if i am not able to take her anywhere outside. and she loves feeding the fish in the pond with pori..
I stay in tambaram.. and yeah distance is a problem.
