Beep Beep Woo Woo

Croup?  Slap cheek?  The common cold?  What haven’t we had this past month! 

That’s why I’m creating a new Pinterest Board.  It’s called Mommy Sick Days.  The whole board will be about activites you can do with your kids when all you want to do is lay on the couch.

Beep Beep Woo Woo is the perfect game for Mommy Sick Days.

My sister invented it when she was two.  All you do is lay on the couch and put your feet up on the coffee table.  Then your kids run around the coffee table in circles.  When they get to your legs they say “Beep Beep”.  You say “Woo Woo” and lift up your legs for them to pass.

It’s ridiculously simple and yet ridicioulsy fun.

Ice Skating on Paper Plates

I stole this idea from Jenna’s Kindermusik teacher—ice skating on paper plates!  It works best if you have paper plates with waxy bottoms, which we unfortunately do not have at the moment.  But regular paper plates work okay too.  Turn on some music, scatter some plates, and skate over the living room carpet to your heart’s content.
