Looking to entertain and educate a toddler while not getting up.

What can I teach my toddler about while we stay on the sofa? Supposed to rest legs. We've been watching Leonard Bernstein on YouTube, learning about orchestras -- looking for more stuff like that.

I've got a twenty-month-old daughter and bum knees; the physiotherapist says rest is essential to fixing the knees. Our days normally involve (it turns out) a fair bit of physical activity and resting is quite boring for both of us. She loves books, but not for hours and hours, and I'm going wobbly from excess Seuss.
I don't have a TV, but I do have a laptop. I am loathe to get my toddler used to a screen, but... A little while back we got into watching orchestras on YouTube. We went to see a Beethoven-for-the-kiddies production in person, checked out the various instruments via Google image search, and generally had a grand time learning about music.
What can I do with her that's similar and keeps me mostly on the sofa for the moment?
