    Have any children's books to read to her? Tag won't last long with a toddler. Build a mud pie. Watch bugs. Have any sidewalk chalk? Their attention spans are short so you'll be changing activities every few minutes. Just play with her.

    I wouldn't feed a lot. The mother should give you an idea of the feeding schedule. And an afternoon nap will probably be on the list too.

    When they first get their, just stay in for a bit. Play games like peek-a-boo (since shes 2) and put some cartoons for her while playing some fun games like that. Give her a snack, let it settle, then go outside for a while. Play with some toys like balls, and stuff like that. While U guys are outside, all of you's can eat a snack together. Go back inside afterwards, and put her to sleep, then by the time she wakes, it will be late evening. Put a cartoon/movie that she will find interesting, then again snack time! and just stay in and if she gets bored, play some more games! then again... Snack Time!!!

    Get some coloring books out, and crayons. Or maybe find a ball and roll it back and forth. Two year olds are pretty easily amused. So really simple things like peek-a-boo and tickling are all you need.

    Ask the parent when/how much to feed her. And anything that involves imagination is a good game. I loved hide and go seek. Dolls are always good. If its hot out, set up a sprinkler or spray the hose or something.

    Beer pong, battle shots, ring of fire, flip cup etc...
