Sick Day Fun

We're battling a nasty little virus in our house right now and poor Samantha got hit hard. She stayed home today, and in an effort to make her (and the boys) feel better I set up a little sick day fun.

Samantha snuggled her unicorns while watching Ruby Gloom. Have you seen that show?? It is ADORABLE!

Once the ibuprofen kicked in we did some coloring. My little artist now prefers to color with oil pastels instead of crayons. 

We also set up a pretty rockin' fort!

It is even more awesome with the lights off!

Philly looks like a little zombie in this one!
I attached clothesline rope to the banister of our stairs and stretched it across the room to a hook that I secured to the wall. After that I just threw a sheet over, tacked one side to the wall, and strung some Christmas lights. The whole thing took less than 5 minutes to set up, and gave the kids a fun place to play the rest of the day.

Superman and Buzz Lightyear in their "Secret Lair".

Silly Superman!



Bedtime fun in the fort. Christmas lights make everything cool!


Today I learned that a sick day isn't always a bad thing, and that the random, silly stuff is usually more fun than the well-planned, "pretty" activities. 

What do you do to keep your kids amused on sick days?

  4. Thanks guys! My girl has ADHD so if I don't find something amusing for her to do she will run around and make herself worse.

  8. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
