How to Plan for an Activity

•Volunteers provide the activity. If you would like to use our donated crafting materials or board games/bingo set, please let us know in advance. Any musical equipment, tape players, keyboards, microphones or props must be supplied by the  person or group hosting the activity.

•Create ways for children and family members, of all ages and abilities, to become actively engaged and involved in the activity.

•The activities must be well planned and have educational inspirational or entertainment value to our children and families.

Please limit the number of volunteers in your group to 5-7 people.  If there are children under age 16 in your group, there must be one adult to each 2-3 children. 

•Remember, families are here to care for their sick children so we never know how many will attend an activity, but please don’t let this discourage you. You can expect anywhere between 2-15 participants for an activity and 10-35 for holiday parties or ice cream socials.

•Songs and activities should not include religious or political themes.

•We advertise activities to families. Please let us know what activity you will be hosting by 3:30 p.m. the Friday prior to your planned visit.
