In bed with mommy - activity ideas for the little (and not so little) ones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, 

 

hopefully they'll let me get out of this hospital today! I had to encourage them to let me go, but if all the examinations they planned for today will be fine, I am out of here.

 

Luckily, I live in a country with a health insurance system, and I'll get plenty of help out home, money wise and personal help. So I don't whine (anymore than necessary) because you guys have it so much harder! 

 

but now: I will have the kids with me for say 2 - 3 hours, late afternoon - evening, until Daddy comes home, and I will need to stay in bed most of this time. Dinner will be prepared and he'll just have to heat it, maybe I can event teach my seven year old to heat it (or do you think that's to young?!) 

 

Whatever - I've decided to make the best of this time, and maybe it can even be fun! 

 

So, now I need ideas for activities to do with them, while I am more or less resting, craft ideas, snack ideas, game ideas, movie ideas - pleeeease share! Anything that comes to your mind! 

DD1 is seven, DS1 is 5 and DD2 is two years old. 

 

I am thinking about getting a bed tablet thing for a rather stable table thing for crafts and drawing and such, do you think that would be helpful?

What about these sitting in bed cushions? Helpful or overestimated? 

 

I am really positive about this all of the sudden and can see a multitude of options to have some quality time with my kids before bellybaby arrives (not too soon, hopefully). 

 

I am even thinking about starting a blog about it - but maybe I get manic now ;) 

 

Please share your ideas! 

 

Thank you !
