We are doing a family service project for Phoenix Childrens Hospital.. We are collecting items for "unboredom bags"... These bags will go to kids who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and stuck at the hospital with nothing to do.. Our goal is to help these kids to enjoy being kids while learning how to cope with their disease...
Today we went shopping with donation money!! First we went to the LEGO store at arrowhead.. The manager was awesome and gave us $15 off our whole order.. The kids had a great time picking our sets!! We were able to get 21 LEGO sets for kids at the hospital!! A great activity to do while being stuck there for days at a time! Then we went over to Costco and got 20 board books... All of this we were able to get with a donation from our grandpa.. THANKS GRANDPA!!!!
Right now we have 8 games, 21 LEGO sets, 21 crayon roll ups, 13 board books, 15 color activity books and a few boxes of crayons...Cant wait to see what else we can gather up!! Thank everyone who is helping with this project!!!
Okay about this game :Cuponk... have you heard of it?? You have a cup and a few ping pong balls, it also comes with cards inside that have different challenges.. The goal is to get the ball in the cup..but its not so easy..The cards say things like :off your face into the cup and you have to let the ball roll off your face then into the cup..Or off the wall, then table then into the cup.. get it?? Anyway a great friend brought this to Craig when he was in the hospital.. It was GREAT for him... besides being cooped up in the hospital room for 4 days and having to deal with everything, he is a super active kid and sitting there was making him a little crazy.. He LOVED this game.. At one point he bounced the ball and it shot right into the sharps container on the wall!! ha.. we couldnt believe it..So then a nurse came in with make items trying to get it out!! She finally got it out using a roll of wrapping paper with sticky tape on the end!! Having a simple game like this really lifted Craigs spirits:) ha!! I was able to get 8 of these on clearance with a $40 donation from a friend, !!
THANK YOU KENDRA AND KODIE!!
