So yesterday was Halloween and once again I was amazed at the creativity that goes into the holiday. I saw not only some pretty awesome costumes (cardboard army tank, anyone?) but some really cool decorations.

Here’s a little picture to brighten up your Friday! Enjoy!
Hi friends! I wanted to share with you a wonderful video that was shared with me last week. Michael Towne, a child life specialist in California got up on the TEDx stage to share about how important it is to have fun, even when the situation appears most dire. He did great job sharing some of […]
New art project for all of you as spring is in the air! (Or at least, it is where I live, we had to turn our air conditioner on this week!) I wanted to share a foot-print art project I tested out that is really adorable. It’s a bumble bee footprint picture that is perfect […]

No! It’s Freedom Flyer!!! Da da da DUN!!! I recently did a group therapeutic activity that I wanted to share with you all! It came about after the Baymax medical gaze creation. My coworker and I are continuing to work on creative ways to integrate medical play into various activities. Since we both like superheros, […]

This one is a little simple, but it was actually part of a challenge that I gave myself one day while doing medical art with some children. We had given them various medical supplies and encouraged them to […]
