The study was a pretest-posttest, parallel group randomized controlled experimental design. H0: The pain and fear mean scores of the intervention group, in which the distraction method (ball squeezing and blowing bubbles) was applied during the blood collection process, was not different from the control group. The study was carried out with the participation of 111 children aged 6-12 years and their parents, who underwent blood collection in the emergency department of a state hospital. Inclusion Criteria - Being between the ages of 6-12 - The child's willingness to participate in the study - Parent's willingness to participate in the study - Parent and child can speak Turkish Exclusion Criteria - The child has a disease that causes chronic pain - The child has a hearing or visual impairment - The child has a mental or neurological disability - The child has used drugs that will create an analgesic effect in the last 24 hours before the application. Children were randomly assigned to blowing bubbles (n:37), ball squeezing (n:37) and control (n:37) groups. Bubble blowing and ball squeezing methods were used to distract attention during the blood collection process. Data were collected with Child and Family Information Form, Wong Baker Faces Pain Scale, Child Fear Scale. Pretest and posttest measurements were recorded separately by the child, parent and researcher. Descriptive statistics, Chi-square test, one-way analysis of variance, Tamhane's T2 test, t test for dependent groups were used in the analysis of the data. The statistical significance of the results was taken as p<0,05 ;
