If your craft requires safety scissors or glue, please include separately in a sealed zippered plastic bag. For more information on craft supply kit guidelines,click the link in Related Topics.

Waiting room fun bags

Fill a sealed zippered plastic bag with fun things a child or teen can do as they wait to visit the doctor. Make bags age-specific, but generic enough for a boy or a girl. Include things such as: crayons, markers, colored pencils, paper, coloring books, and stickers.

Mask straps

Mask straps are used to improve the comfort level for patients required to wear masks to prevent the spread of infection or protect our patients from infection. These mask straps replace the elastic band that comes standard on the mask. Patients tell us that the flannel and fleece material feel much better against their cheek and causes far less rubbing than the original elastic band. Please click on the "Mask straps" link on the upper right to direct you through the construction process. Please note that anything made with fabric must be made in a smoke free and pet free environment. All masks must be individually packed in sealed zippered plastic bags.
