DIY Anesthesia Mask

Another great video blog from Genevieve Lowry, on a creative way to help children cope with an anesthesia mask.

D.I.Y Child Life

Normalizing and desensitizing threatening or scary items helps children to gain mastery and control while also having some fun. Turning an anesthesia mask into a bubble blower or a Lil’ critter allows the child to engage with the materials creatively through play, potentially leading to an increase in comfort and ability to cope with a new and unfamiliar experience and environment.

Shout out to Toni Crowell for reminding me of this one!!
