* Feel Better Felt Band-Aids For Play

Felt band-aids...
why didn't I think of these last year for our Doctor Birthday Party?!

My sweet little Mini-Saurus "C"
woke up with the croup in the wee hours this morning (ugh).

We spent time in my bathroom cuddling with the shower steam,
then followed it up with some quality time doing a saline treatment on our nebulizer.

Checking out the purple dinosaur mask on our nebulizer this morning.

While we were having our wee-morning rendez-vous
she announced that her Froggy needs some band-aids for her ouchy toe.
She made me promise to make her some in the morning.
Whatever helps HER feel better!

So, after a cup of very strong coffee this morning,
we sat down together at the sewing machine
and came up with these little felt band-aids.

I cut out some tan felt rectangles.

Then, rounded the corners with my scissors and sewed on white felt square pads.

My coughing and hacking sewing assistant
and I whipped up several different sizes for various dolls and stuffed animal friends.

No fingers were injured in the making of this project.

She also asked for some toilet paper for her Froggy.

They're both working on their potty training!

So, I sewed a small felt strip with stitching at regular intervals for the squares.
And no, it is not quilted... it is single-ply.

She's been rolling it up all morning (good fine motor practice)

Froggy watched us working.
She tried out one of our new band-aids on her knee.

I added velcro to one side of each band-aid to help them stick together.
I only had white velcro in my sewing basket so we colored it "tan"with a permanent marker to blend in.

Feel better sweet pea!

Check out this 
ADORABLE Felt Doctor's Kit my bloggy friend, Cheryl,

Logan is just getting over croup! It stinks! (He has that same mask though. lol!)

Cute project. I like the velcro idea. I was wondering how you could get them to 'stick'.

{{{hugs}}} to you and Sweet Pea. Croup is a horrible way to spend the day.

Love Val

Your poor baby! Those band aids are perfect! Little M is always putting real band aids on her animals and dolls. (I have to hide the band aid box or there would be none left for real ouchies.)

Wow the bandaids are such a fantastic idea and are so many that would love these.

I have over 30 mums that make for our online shop and I would love to be able to include these in our range... would that be possible more than happy to link back to your blog?

allie said...

I love that you're embracing the pretend toilet paper! Its a topic that is so important to children, and one they are eager to explore. Sorry your little one isn't feeling well, but I'm glad you spent such quality, imaginative time together!

pink and green mama MaryLea said...

Yes Allie, Playing with toilet paper and "potty" role play is very important for toddlers!

You are welcome to link to the idea of my band aids but I am NOT comfortable with your group making my bandaids and selling them for profit in a shop. Please see my copyright policy at the bottom of this blog regarding the sale of my ideas for profit.
