Hand print X-Ray

Hand print X-ray


When you have a toddler, you really have to keep an eye on them at all times. Unfortunately, this is impossible. You turn your back for just one second & boom. It is inevitable.

I got a call from my daycare provider that my daughter hurt her arm. Mai told me that she was jumping on her mat during quiet time and fell and bent her arm. Yes, my child is the one who is jumping during quiet time instead of napping. We took her to the hospital & she needed to have x-rays to make sure that there was not a break. There were no breaks, but she did end up having a nasty sprain & was in a lot of pain for the last couple of days. She is doing much better today & back to her old playful self. We have been doing a lot of one handed playing today & we also did a quick craft inspired by her hospital visit.


For this craft we painted her hand & lower arm in gray.


We pressed it onto a piece of black construction paper & let it dry.

With a white piece of chalk, we drew in our little bones.


“Ewwww, that looks like a skeleton, mama.” Yes, it does. Hopefully we will not have to look at another x-ray for a long time.
