When my son was little we lived in the Middle East...not so much TV available. Since we did a lot of traveling I carried colored pencils (they do not melt in 100+ degrees) and paper.

Are Children No Longer Creative? Tips for Raising Open & Questioning Kids

I've lived in the same apt for about 10 years (divorce is a financial killer), but I find I really like not having to cut grass, do maintenance, etc. Several years ago I decided that I was tired of renter's beige walls, so I painted each room in my place a soft color. (Easy to repaint). Then my need for a mantel to put Christmas stockings got the better of me, and with no fireplace, I designed a bookcase that holds a small electric 'woodstove' and I hang our stockings above it. It did added more book storage and created my own little 'fireplace'. Think outside of the box and make your rented space your own. You will love it in the end.
