Get Better Box
What is a Get Better Box?
A Get Better Box is a box of treats designed to raise a smile and entertain a little one if they're poorly in bed or have a hospital stay. Read how I got the idea here.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN GET BETTER BOX
1) Firstly, get a shoe box, or something similar.
2) Wrap it using wrapping paper or wall paper and decorate with stickers.
3) Find a selection of items that you feel will keep your little one(s) busy whilst in bed (colouring book, pencils, game, finger puppets, little activity book, toy characters, soft animal in a matchbox etc.) You can update the contents as your children grow.
4) Add a little notebook titled 'Get Better Box' for the children to draw or write in every time they use it. This makes a fun record of using the box.
