Sick kids? Make some jello play dough! CLOSED!

Congrats to our winner Alek!

Last week I shared how to beat the sick blues and I loved all your comments. Thank you for sharing all your best mom tips! Having sick kids really is the worst. Luckily there are several things we can do to make the time go better for everyone. I listed some of our favorite things in my last post, but one thing I forgot to mention was baking. This isn’t an activity we would do if they had a stomach bug, but if they have a cold or cough it really helps to pass the time by and keep their mind off of being sick. Of course I wash their hands EXTRA good and we don’t deliver the baked goods that day. The best recipe I have found to make with my kids, is jello cookies. You can use the dough as play dough and the kids have a blast! The kids love to cut out shapes and this activity keeps them entertained for hours. It’s a lot of fun! Give it a try! jello play dough!
