Fold up a hand towel for a mattress and cover Teddy with a pillow case.
Use the cardboard offcuts to make a patient chart - Cut a small rectangle of cardboard and a matching piece of paper. Write important notes on the paper and use glue or sticky tape to secure it to the cardboard. Run a line of glue along the top of more paper pieces to make a flip chart.

Fold a crease at the top of the cardboard and hang it on the end of the bed.

Make bandages out of paper and sticky tape for Teddy's sore legs, arms, tummy and ears. If you like you can use strips of fabric to make roller bandages.

Tuck the point in behind the arm.

Protect Teddy's sore eye with a cupcake pan. Punch two holes in the sides and thread some string or wool through to make an eye patch.

Make crutches out of popsicle sticks or find y-shaped branches from the garden.

Draw lines along a popsicle stick for a thermometer.
You can make a stretcher out of chopsticks and a hanky if Teddy isn't too big. Fold the hanky so that the sticks poke out each end, enough for handles. Place the sticks one third of the way across the hanky.

Fold each side in.

No need to fasten it, Teddy's weight will keep it secure

...as long as you are not too rough.

Once he is all patched up, sing songs to cheer Teddy up, make a get well card, pick flowers to brighten Teddy's room.
