Encouraging children to be creative and self-reflect while in Hospital

Giving a child a creative project to do while in hospital gives them a sense of mastery over an aspect of their lives when undergoing medical procedures. The self reflection quilt is double sided, the front of it is made up of white animal shapes that can be coloured in by the child using special fabric pens. The underside is an augmented reality diary comprising of 365 individual square patterns that can each have a video attached to. Hence the child can sit in bed and mindfully reflect on their experience while in hospital.
