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!

You can also try Children’s Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold When your child has a bad cold.Children’s Mucinex is the #1 children’s brand for relieving congestion* and provides fast acting relief from your child’s worst cold symptoms. Try Children’s Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold if your child needs relief from stuffy nose and chest congestion. Always use Children’s Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold as directed.

    We bake all the time, they seem less into it when they aren’t feeling well. My oldest is home sick today, two are off to school and the youngest is always home. Wish I could use this recipe but it’s got butter and my son is so allergic to milk, we’d land right in the ER with an anaphylactic reaction. :( Might just make it myself since I”m trapped at home now!!

    Not at my house, I’m an RN and just can’t do that…too much sharing of germs, and there are germs that can survive baking. I do bring out bubbles and play-do though…and have a new coloring book waiting for sick days.

    I have baked with my son when he was under the weather. Baking made the day go by faster, occupied his time so he didn’t wallow in feeling icky, and if he was contagious with something, I baked stuff for everyone and he made stuff that only he could eat, that way no one was left out or exposed to something yucky. Baking just naturally makes a kid feel better somtimes.

    I actually have both kids home sick with me today. And it’s pretty much been a cuddling on the couch day. I’m not much of a baker – but I do love to cook and the kids do help. Even my 17 month old can wash veggies and stir ingredients. We make cards when family and friends are sick . . . maybe they’ll have to be delivered with some jello play dough! (perfect for adults too!)

    When they start to feel a little better, baking is always such a fun idea! It puts a smile back on their face and has just enough movement to get their minds off of feeling terrible (without over doing it)!

    I don’t think I ever considered baking with sick kids. There are days when their energy levels, despite being contagious or otherwise ill have been a bit much, but baking wasn’t one of the things I considered. I might in the future!

    In December I was resting after an early morning biopsy and I awakened to my darling girl (15) in the kitchen making jello and fruit juice pops for her 12 year old brother. He was running a fever and she put him to bed and went right to the kitchen to make things she knew he’d like! I like to bake healthy things they love while they are unwell and when they are on the mend they are my best taste testers, but they are a little bit beyond baking together to keep their minds off their sniffles I guess!

    I do bake and cook with my children when they are under the weather. However, if there’s a fever, or worse (vomiting) they are kept lying down and resting. I have found that when they take part in making something healthy when they’re not feeling their best, they’re more likely to consume it, or play with it – as is the case with your post.

    I don’t have kids but I remember my mom taking me into the kit hen and letting me help her bake and cook. Today I’m 23 and a pretty good cook and baker if I do say so myself and I have my mom to thank for my passion to cook. I think that etching your kids to cook helps keep the away from unhealthy fast food stores and can be a great bonding moment between parents and kids, I know my mom is my best friend!

    I don’t have kids, but when I am sick, I’d love it too if someone baked for me. I think with all the germs though that I probably would save baking for another time. When we got sick as kids, one thing that my Mom always made for us is what we called drinking jello. You just use the jello mix and instead of cooling it down, drink it while it’s hot. It always tasted good and I”m sure the hot drink did wonders for us.

    My daughter just had her tonsils out two weeks ago and when she started feeling better (after two days) we baked Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes (with cayenne)!! I told her she wouldn’t be able to eat them but she didn’t mind. She said she wanted to bake them for everyone else. They were amazing….just like her! ( wish I could share the photo. They were muy caliente e muy bien.)

    I am a professional baker, so there is ALWAYS something sweet being created in the kitchen, sick or not!

    No if they are sick they dont need to be up. They need to be resting and not spreading germs to other’s food by cooking. We cook and bake at other times.

    No we don’t bake together but instead read, play games or watch movies together.

    If my kids ask me I will usually make something easy with them when they are sick- last week we made dog treats when my daughter wasn’t feeling well.

    I have never cooked with my kids when they are under the weather. It has never even crossed my mine but maybe next time I will!

    They’re usually TOO sick for that, but I like to bake while they’re resting up t make the house smell good, which makes them feel better :)

    Absolutely not! Especially if we’re going to eat it. Besides she just lays around when she’s sick. That’s how I know the girl is sick.

    We like to cook but we’re not fans of sweets so we shy away from baking.

    When my kids are sick they don’t feel like baking, they just like laying in bed and watching TV.
