Being in hospital is still a big thing for a school aged child.
Feeling sick and having to have things like needles or surgery. Being in hospital and missing out on their normal life. These things still worry and upset older children.
Being sick and not able to do their normal activities like school or sport can be an important issue for older children. This means that games and activities that can give them a sense of pride when they are finished are a good gift choice.
And don’t forget art supplies. These are still needed because school age children need a way to explore their feelings without having to always talk about them.
