This week has been a challenging one because my own children had the hand foot and mouth virus. It first started with high temperatures of 103 -104. It was scary but thanks to our pediatrician he advised us to give Tylenol or Motrin every 2-3 hrs and hydrate the children. What was weird is that it came on suddenly without any warning at all. One minute they were in the backyard playing like Jolly Ranchers and next were like Miami Heats. They both were down for 2-3days but because it is a highly contagious virus we were advised to stay home for a couple days (thankfully the daycare is closed because we are on summer break). At this time I only have teachers children and they are off. My son’s toenail is falling out but, my daughter had pain in her mouth and they both had loss of appetite. Parents you are welcome to give your take on this hand, foot and mouth virus 🙁
So the question is what to do with children when they are stuck at home on a summer break? Usually she would have the library on Mondays or Tuesdays, Splash park on Wednesdays, dancing on Thursdays, Swimming on Friday, but of course, that was a no can’t do. So she decided to make her BFF a bracelet. Thanks, Melissa & Doug for making toys children do enjoy.
Trying to decide which beads to use
The beads kept sliding off I had to knot one side for her to keep them on.
I see someone trying really hard to do this. ..(do you see dirt? yep from Gardening earlier 🙂
Good job love you are doing GREAT!
She is trying to figure how to get it through this one with a smaller hole. Mommy dear had to help
Look at her finger placement. She is very good at doing crafts that require fine motor skills.
So much concentration 🙂
The finished product. I helped her tie the knot.
Doesn’t it look wonderful mommy? Yes my darling it’s Gorgeous!!
Strike a Pose
Pretty Isn’t It – can be worn on hands or feet :). She decided she will make another one for her friend when she is better and can’t pass on any virus. Two more days to go and she will be 100% (technically she is fine but who knows what lingers)
