Its half term, the children's break and mine too if they allow it.
I always try to get them to unwind and just keep themselves busy for at least two "stay at home days" this invariably includes the usual distractions, garden, Lego, Xbox, reading, (baking, not me!) and with some encouragement something creative usually goes on, although as they get older they know what they want to do, so I try to just let them get on with it.

never at a table, always under one,
and I always used my knees as a rest for whatever I was doing and still in my PJ's as she is.
