Fall Themed Craft Kits

IMG_6251

I’m all about waiting room craft kits! Especially seasonal ones! I mean, c’mon, look how cute these little “Fall Friends” are!! These craft kits are very easy to make and I am truly blessed to have such great volunteers that help me make dozens of them (thanks sofi & stephanie).

All you need is:

Then you just put 10 shapes and half of a construction paper into a baggie & voilà! Fun, seasonal, adorable, mess free waiting room crafts ready to go!

Therapeutic activity of the week

This week I had a patient that was starting to feel sad about spending so much time in the hospital. I decided to make this thankful turkey with her so that when she starts to feel down, she can have a (festive) reminder of all the good things in her life. The activity was a big success and she and I had a lot of fun. Here’s a photo of the supplies I used (turkey materials purchased from oriental trading) & my thankful turkey!

This activity can be adapted to different seasons (flowers for spring, snowflakes for winter, etc)
