Re: happy dance
Hullo Butterfly
Ann mentioned a 'breakfast tray' for the little girl to work on in bed.
Might it be an idea to get one of those trays which has a soft padded
base?  so that it would sit a little bit more steadily?
Also, if I'm stuck in bed I love talking books (on tape) - specially if
she has to keep her arm still.
Play-doh? that she can model in hospital and somebody 'bake' it at home
for her?

Ooh, yes, or Crayola model magic -- it's not sticky, and it air dries.

know some cookies sheets work....
that way if she is too tired to write, she can still write....
-jigsaw puzzles
-klutz kwiz games (little hand held games and knowlege tests that come in
grade/skill levels - check Wally world)
-chalk or oil pastels

different plastic pieces and you make rubbings to design clothes....  I
think there are generic ones and Barbie ones...

Re: happy dance
Tanagram set...... lots of different designs to make, and there are magnetic
ones available.
Check out teaching / home school supply places, they have lots of fun and
educational stuff, as well as art supplies.
Klutz books, different project type books with starter supplies. There is one
for embroidery floss bracelets, one on "kootie catchers" and lots more.
Check the Kids Craft section at Jo-Ann's, they have some great project kits.

Hope she gets to feeling a lot better and things go well for her and the
family,

Pati, in Phx

Re: happy dance
Somehow I missed the original post, but caught Butterfly in the middle
:)

Look for "Shoebox Craft Collections"  they are little plastic totes
full of assorted craft stuffs and come with a little instructional
booklet with an assortment of ideas.

Wikki Stix, bendable stick togetherable non-messy brightly colored
sticks that you can play with for hours.

several sheets of poster board, and an assortment of "stuff" (buttons,
beads, pom poms, confetti, mylar bits, crayons etc) and a big bottle
of washable glue.

A drawing pad, pencils, eraser and a pencil sharpener

There are any number of good books out, that she could read and do
from if you included some of the recomended materials.

Either Bemiss-Jason or Nicchi puts out a book on kirigami (folding and
cutting paper, like paperdoll chains and snowflakes) that comes with
paper.
Origami is a natural too.

Re: happy dance
I saw two different kinds of soap bubbles at Wally World--one kind was
very sturdy--catchable and stackable.  The other was *edible* and came
in different flavors.  Blows my mind.

Stickers are always good, and crafty things like friendship
bracelets.  Gel pens and dark paper to use them with.
