Eucalyptus Rice

There is a bit of sickness going around our place at the moment, the twins especially have nasty little colds and have been demanding lots of Mummy time.
It's always hard when you have two sick children as I'm often pulled in different directions. 
I have been bringing out some new activities to keep them happy and playing along with them to keep their minds off their colds.
Today I laid out a huge king sheet in the lounge and we played with Rainbow Rice. Before putting the rice out to play I added a few drops of Eucalyptus oil so as Rory and Alexis played, they were breathing it in and hopefully it worked some magic on their congested insides.


  1. Try rubbing Vicks on the soles of their feet and putting socks on. Night and morning. It really seems to help. I was sceptical but tried it on myself and it helped. If their skin is very tender, you can dilute it with a bit of vaseline.

    Hope they recover quickly, I had three boys but no twins and can remember clingy toddlers. Not easy to manage.

  2. What a clever idea. That rice certainly looks like fun.

  3. That looks like such great toddler fun.
    And a brilliant idea to add the oil!
    I hope that they recover quickly and are back to their usual selves soon!


I love that you have stopped by, and love reading your thoughts and opions, thanks for sharing. xx
