25 Activities to do with Sick Kids

Pin It

It's been a tough week in our house.  Bear has been on the couch for 7 of the past 8 days due to a fever, a ragged cough, and a list of other ailments.  As active as he is, that many days in a row calls for some serious boredom on his part.  So I've been pulling out all the stops to find some quiet and calm activities to do with my sick kiddo.  Here are some activities we did, plus more from some other great sites.
 
  • A Jello sensory bin like Life Lesson Plans made allows for some calm play and a hydrating snack that's gentle on sick tummies.
  • Make listening tubes like Teach Preschool did.  What can you hear in your house?
  • Create window mosaics with contact paper and tissue paper like these ones from MamaSmiles.
  • Make paper lanterns and have some fun playing with them in the dark.  Find out how at Preschool Powol Packets.
  • Foam shapes and water can provide some quiet, therapeutic play. See how to make it work at Creative Play Central.
