    Default The "Im not coping today" activity list

    I though PoshBecks idea in my "one of those days" thread was Brilliant and i though perhaps we could have a thread here where people could add their "not coping days" ideas for kids.... Seeing as we all have days like that See PoshBecks post here

    People could write the ideas for their fridge...and also copy and paste this list and then add their ideas ..

    Then when someone is having a bad day and not seeing straight they can refer to their fridge copy or come here and check the list also

    The "I'm not coping today" list .....

    * Outdoor Water play
    * Pots and Pans and wooden spoons

    * Blow balloons up quite small and draw faces on them
    * Make puppets out of toilet rolls
    * Collect leaves outside and stick them on paper
    * Build a cubby with chairs / table etc and tablecloth
    * Dance to a CD
