Hospital Care Package for 8 year old?

Anonymous

The son of a friend of mine just had major surgery and will be in the hospital for approximately a month to allow rehabilitiation. He can receive care packages so I'd like to send a little something. I know a few people have already sent coloring and activity books.

I was thinking some sort of craft activity, but nothing too much because he still needs to fly home after all of this is over.

Anyone else have any other ideas? I don't know why I'm drawing such a blank.

I used to love latch hook kits as a kid. It's super easy but time consuming, and you get a really cool finished product.

I've seen where people make quite books with a felt road and they can drive Hotwheels on it. Make different pieces of road so he can put them together and a few cars.

Not a craft, but my 8 year old loves puzzles and card games.

a travel Lego kit? I've seen a ton of those on Pinterest, where you glue a small base to a container filled with assorted Lego.

I love the Lego Kit that was mentioned. Perhaps purchase a small sturdy plastic bin, glue the lego base to the underside of the lid, fill the bin with assorted legos, and enclose a book of different Lego builds he can make with his set.

Anything lego or minecraft would be my guess

There were these rubber band loom things that were insanely popular at Christmas time--about $10 at michaels and you can get all colors of rubber bands--like school colors and stuff to make bracelets with.   Easy to do and the kids loved them!   Chapter books are a great idea too---Harry Potter (if he is still popular?) or even superhero comic books are a great way to pass the time.
