Nerf wars! Buy a bunch of Nerf guns and mod them. Glow in the dark ones are particularly awesome.

During the winter Munchkin and I tend to do more "brain" stuff like art, legos, building forts, etc. We have a ton of rain as well and there is only so much puddle splashing a toddler will do. We try to get in at least one walk around the block (at least) a day, otherwise we exercise indoors. She has a Sesame Street Dance with Zoe DVD that she'll wiggle to and she'll join in my hula DVD workouts (which is a total cuteness overload).
I would look for an indoor playground (starting to see more of these pop up) or consider swimming lessons at the local pool. A friend takes her kids to gymnastic class on the weekends and then they practice the lesson at home during the week. It really helps her kids keep the cabin fever at bay.
