Sick Day Fun

20130301-172503.jpg

Firstly, let me say a big SORRY for my blog hiatus. The holidays added with Mini Thor being sick more times than I can count kept me crazy busy, but hey that’s just part of mommyhood.

Mini Thor is sick once again, which means no tot school for him and no class or work for me. So what do you do when your quarantined in the house all day with a toddler?

How about one of Mini Thor’s absolute favorite sick day activities…Glow Bath with “feel better bubbles” (in the words of little man)

What you need…

Firstly, let me say that that bubble bath is worth the $13 smackaroos, seriously it is amazing! The eucalyptus does wonders for stopped up congested little ones.

Here’s the how too..

  • Get a good foam of bubbles going
  • Activate the glow sticks (I usually use four)
  • Drop the glow sticks in the bath
  • Turn off the lights
  • Ta-Da you just became the coolest parent on the block!

Glow Bath! It was hard to get a photo in the dark so I had to let some light in, this doesn’t show the full effect of the glow so you’ll just have to try it and see for yourself! 🙂

Mini Thor loves this and the glowing bath time fun keeps him in the tub long enough for the aromatherapy to do its work.

Here’s another one of our fav sick day activities…

Make something to play with out of stuff in the recycling bin!

We made a car garage/track..it was fun, easy, and we made it together. Can’t get much better than that.

What we used..

diy car track supplies

  • Toliet paper & paper towel rolls
  • Cereal Box
  • Empty popcorn box
  • Markers
  • Hot Glue
  • Imagination!

The How-to…

Let your muchkin decorate the parts

Cut the paper towel roll in have to make a ramp

Use the toilet paper rolls to add a second level (I used hot glue to attach everything)

Add cars and play away!

See, sick days don’t have to mean doom-and-gloom, make them as fun as you can!

Wishing you a healthy new year and may your sick days be few and fun,

Kate & Mini Thor
