Idea to Keep Sick Kids Busy

By January 8, 2013

Follow me on:

When kids are sick and miserable, the parents usually feel their pain also. While it is hard to watch them feel so horrible that all they want to do is lay around or sleep, it may be harder when they are on the mend and you have to force them to stay inside and take it easy. I have gathered together these 20 crafts and activities for sick kids that just may help with this dilemma.

My kids love making cards and rubber stamping, but it’s not easy when they are lying in bed!

Love the slipper sock idea. I’ve been paying mucho dinero for those, never realizing how easy they would be to make myself. TFS!
