Dd broke her leg this spring. It was a BAD break, too (cast for 9 weeks; walking boot for another 3). For the first couple of weeks, we did lots of coloring, stickers, play dough, a million puzzles, and so on. We sat her on a blanket in the park/yard and blew bubbles or played catch. We got her different kinds of art supplies that she hadn't used before: rubber stamps with ink pads, Crayola Color Wonder markers, age appropriate invisible ink books, like these:http://www.leemagicpen.com/catalog/d...gv614mcjdahhc3
We have two lap desks, which made it easier for her to sit in bed or on the couch and do puzzles or draw:http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Toys-Desk...0643255&sr=8-2HTTP://www.levenger.com/PAGETEMPLATE...2-3|pageid=614
We checked out tons of library books. We had lots of visitors. We also got her her first (very tame) DVDs.
Oh, and we took her to Disney World--10 days after the break.
But that was planned before she broke her leg, of course. She did great there, though--all the characters signed her cast and she got to skip all the lines. You don't have to go there, of course, but don't be afraid to take her places--she'll love a change of scenery.
They do adapt really, really quickly. In a couple of weeks, she was scooting around everywhere, and when she got her first, clunky replaced with a more streamlined one, she was walking on it the minute we got home.
