My poor kiddos have been sick with colds today. I swear colds are the worst. The runny noses, the tissues strewn all over the house, the watery eyes...
I gave each of the kids a blanket, pillow, doll/bottle, tissues, and a garbage can to throw them in. They snuggled down to watch a movie. But I didn't want them watching movies all day. So while they watched Tangled I flipped through my pins and found a very simple idea that proved to be lots of fun.
I gave each child two wiggly eyes, a piece of paper, and something to color with. Goofy was pretty excited.
I let the kids put the eyes anywhere they wanted to on their pieces of paper and then they drew whatever they wanted.
Princess made a talking flower.
Goofy wanted me to draw shapes all over her paper so she could color them. This turned into a game we played together called "What else could this shape be?"
Princess' finished flower.
What a fun, cheap activity you can do any sick day, rainy day, or whenever your kids get the urge to draw!
