Book Activities for A Trip The Hospital by Freda Chiu
This 2022 shortlisted new illustrator book of the year is a perfect book for any child who is visiting hospital as an expected appointment or a surprise. A fear free explanation of what children can expect inside the hospital and some of the many people they will meet while they are there.
The team at Learn From Play have made 6 activities for this book which are perfect for children in pre-school or Kindergarten or Year 1 which are making a skeleton using cotton buds like when Fatima had her arm x-rayed, things you will and will not find when you visit a hospital, colour coding hospital staff, a fun ambulance maze and dot to dot and sorting pictures into safe and unsafe actions where unsafe actions could result in a trip to the hospital.
You might also want to consider taking your little one on a visit to the hospital when they are not sick so they can see that it is not a scary place but somewhere they could need to go to get better if they hurt themselves. It could also be nice to make a get well soon card or a gift for someone in hospital to make them feel better and help them to get well soon.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
