Need ideas!!

I need some ideas of what to do with my 3 year old daughter today, it's my last day alone with her because I'm being induced Wednesday. And my sister in law is coming tomorrow morning for a week and a half to help out. My husband is working till 3'ish today. I'm drawing a blank! LOL But I'd like to make the day special. Oh yeah, she has a slight head cold so I don't want to take her to the park or anything and get other kids sick, that was my idea to do a picnic at a really nice park in our area but she woke up really stuffy and coughing. Ahhh I'll feel so guilty if we end up doing nothing on my last day alone with her =(

since she's stuffy...why dont you have an indoor picnic? make a big deal about it...let her help you pack it and then go somewhere where it's just the two of you and have it. =)

You could have her help you make cookies.  Even if they are only the premade cookie dough, kids love to cook.

You could go outside and chalk on the sidewalk if the weather is  nice.

Does she like to do crafts? She could color a picture for the baby, and if you have a frame to put it in you could hang the picture up in the baby room. She might like that. I would also have the picnic too, that sounds like fun. My kids always like to make a tent by putting blankets over the kitchen table and going under it and eating. Whatever you do, enjoy the day with her. Also, good luck this week, and congratulations on the new addition.

You could have a living room picnic!  Spread out a blanket, let her help you make the food, and maybe even turn on a special movie.  Maybe you could do her nails, and let her do yours...a little messy but fun...you could have a mommy daughter spa day and do each others hair and such.

have fun!
