We have had a nasty stomach virus making its way through the house, which has meant several days where Miss M and Baby B have done nothing except cuddle on the sofa and watch TV. The excitement of that wore off quickly for Miss M, and she wanted something to do, but neither of us was feeling up for anything too active yet. Then I remembered this post from over at the Kiwi Crate blog on making paper doll chains.
It took me just a few minutes to cut the doll chains out of plain printer paper, but it kept Miss M happy coloring and playing for over two hours. It was the perfect craft for a quiet sick day.
