Dr. Rylee's X-rays

If you have read this blog for any length of time, you may be familiar with my Little Mister's health issues. Recently we had another bone age X-ray done (along with tons of other tests). I used this simple craft I've seen online to kind of get him ready to have another "picture" taken of his hands.
I traced his hand with chalk on a black piece of construction paper. Then we used pieces of Q-tips and glued them down for bones.

Today we are headed over to Ochsner Children's Hospital in New Orleans to visit with the doctor and discuss some of the test results!

Read more about our Dr. Visits here:


  1. I wish you the best results possible today!
    And what a great way to introduce your child to the world of anatomy and the workings of a medical office. You have prepared him to be as comfortable as possible for things like this. He'll recognize x-rays as something that he's familiar with already!

  2. We have been reading "Franklin Goes to the Hospital" and have talked about what an X-ray is and does. This is such a great follow up art activity! I think we will read the book and do this today - thank you so much! Great idea!

  3. Those are so cute! Hope you get great results!!

  4. Love this! The q-tips really make them look like real bones. Thanks for the idea and we hope that everything goes well at the Dr. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers!

  5. These are awesome. I will definitely use with our Doc McStuffins unit. I hope all goes well at the appointment. Many prayers going your way for your son and family. You are a hero to me. My brother is a cancer survivor also they told him he would never talk again and lo and behold not only does he talk he sings in a band. GOD IS GOOD. Praise him. Have a blessed day. Mrs. Valerie
