DIY Syringe Glitter Wands

Using medical equipment in non threatening ways helps children to gain mastery, normalize a medical encounter, while  having some fun. Use the wands to talk about the use of alternative focus for coping,  strategies for relaxation and guided imagery.  Adding a fun unique sequence or bead to the syringe allows children to create their own “I spy.”

Keep watching for the extra bonus…. Fill a larger 20 cc syringe with colored frosting and use in decorating cookies or cupcakes.  Fun and delicious!!
