Whether you are at home or in the hospital, it can be hard to find activities to help you cope with boredom, restlessness, and feelings of anxiety. The UC Davis Children’s Hospital Creative Arts Therapy team is here to help.
Join our Art Therapists and Music Therapist on the UC Davis Children’s Hospital Facebook page for a Creative Arts Therapy Activity via Facebook Live, every Friday at 3 p.m.
This week, they will concentrate on relaxation and grounding by creating mandalas with materials easily found around the home. For this activity, you will need:
- A blank piece of paper
- Writing tools – markers, colored pencils, pens, crayons, etc.
- A couple of round objects to trace circles with (bowl, plate, cup, etc.)
- Print a mandala of your choice or download and print one of the mandalas posted on the Facebook page
The therapists will also be available to answer any questions you may have about art, music, or how to support your loved ones during this time. Simply post your questions in the comments section below the video.
