Sick Day Activities

One of the twins is home sick from school for a few days. To bust the bored blues, we've been coming up with some activities found on some of our favorite blogs. We went with an aquatic theme today.

Jellyfish in a Bottle- how to @
Materials needed: empty bottle, water, food coloring, piece of plastic bag, string (to tie off water-filled body, see the how-to)
Note: I added glitter to the water after the photos

Magnetic Fishing- how to @
Materials needed: construction paper, hole punch, paper clips, magnetic fishing pole (we have one from our magnetic fish puzzle)

I was trying to see if they could catch certain colors. I said pick only Halloween colors, they chose orange, black and yellow. You can even write numbers on them, or see who can catch the most!
