Enjoy this list of ideas from experienced cancer moms:
*Get a big box. Write "Stuck Having Fun" on it and fill it with things to do when your cutie is stuck inside the house. Some ideas: A dollar store swim floaty for swimming in the tub. A strobe light for dance parties, getting exercise, and releasing energy. Painting and art supplies, coloring books, recipes and box mixes for playing chef, and duck food for and outdoor get-a-way. -Lea S.
*Get the wigs, turn on the tunes, and show off your dance moves. -Chelsea C.

*A Movie Night complete with setting up a concession stand and theater. -Lea S.
*A picnic in the backyard or on the kitchen floor. -Lea S.
*Hot glue magnets to pom poms and stick them on a cookie sheet to create different shapes and pictures. - Chelsie Y.
*Glue pennies onto a pair of shoes to make tap shoes (this would go nicely with the earlier strobe light idea) - Chelsie Y.
*Have your child make pictures or cards for their friends so that they still feel connected to their friends while they are unable to see them. -Chelsie Y.
*Make a tent in the living room and do a pretend camp -Kcee A.
*A camping trip at home. Fishing in the bathtub and an indoor fire (flammable gel can in a bucket of rocks) to roast marshmallows, and a foam dodge-ball set. -Amy J.
*Make mundane tasks fun. When doing the housework make it into a game, folding towels and sorting socks can bring some fun together time and you'll get your housework done. -Melissa A.
