Send kids a project so that they can make something for the person who is sick or sad. Stick to things kids can do on their own and that don’t need a lot of instruction.
Here are a few example ideas:
A bracelet making kit to design “healing bracelets” for everyone in the family or for people who come over to visit.
A painting set to make a picture to put in the person’s room.
Drop off cookie dough or baking supplies and a recipe. You can add an apron and other cute baking utensils.
