We are collecting items to create Happy Kits for Children’s Mercy Hospital. The kits are used by the staff to help patients and families feel welcome and happy during their stay at the hospital. We are going to focus on children aged 2-6 years. Below is a list of items that are required for each bag. Just bring the items to your child’s classroom and we will make sure that they are bagged up and labeled correctly. We will collect the kits during the Week of the Young Child April 8-12th.
*1 sheet of boy or girl themed stickers
*1 pack of Crayola brand crayons
*1 small new board book for ages 2-3 OR 1 small book for ages 4-6
*1 coloring book (age appropriate)
*1 Hot wheel car (optional)
Due to health and safety guidelines the items must meet certain guidelines so the items all must be brand new, non-toxic and latex free, odor free. They also must not promote violence or be connected to a religious holiday. Thank you for helping us brighten a child’s day!
