20 Crafts and Activities for Sick Kids

There is nothing worse for a kid than having to lay in bed because of some virus or flu bug. Besides being bored, they are bothered by feverish brows and aches. Once the novelty of watching movies and playing games wears off, why not try a craft project. The ideas shared here are easy, can be done in bed using a T.V. tray, and are not too messy. Hopefully, they will take the sick child's mind off their stomach ache, sore throat, and other aches - and especially their boredom, at least for for a little while.

If you make any of these easy crafts, make sure you send in a photo to be included in this collection. You can also get your projects published. You can be one of the first to know when new projects are posted if you take a few moments to sign up for the Family Crafts Newsletterand you can also chat about crafts with others in the Family Crafts Forum.
