Child Activity Packet

Children spending time in the hospital often get bored. Child activity packets can give them something to help keep them entertained during their stay. Please place items in individual sandwich-size ziploc bags. We ask that the age of the intended child be written on the bag with a sharpie marker. Examples of things that might be included are: coloring pages and crayons, word searches, or small toys.

dammit doll

Dammit Doll

Though this doll has a funny name, it is generally given to patients who are fighting life-threatening illnesses, such as cancer. These illnesses require many hours in unfamiliar and frustrating situations. This doll is to help those patients relieve a bit of stress and cope with their situation.

Drawstring Bag

Drawstring Bag

In the event of a newborn being life-flighted, we give the parents one of these bags filled with snacks and treats. To make a drawstring bag, simply sew two squares together along three of the edges, and add a drawstring to the top.

foam frame

Foam Frame

When an infant is placed in the Special Care Nursery, many times the siblings feel jealous and disconnected. By decorating these picture frames, it gives them an opportunity to connect to their newborn sibling(s). Please make sure the frame pieces are placed in individual sandwich-size Ziploc bags.

Infant booties

Infant Booties

We are in need of booties for the infants in our Special Care Nursery. The booties are usually crocheted or knitted, as the store-bought ones run too big for the infant’s little feet. Booties need to be made in gender-neutral colors (yellow, green, orange, white) and may be decorated with ribbon or colorful yarn if desired.

When an infant is born premature, sometime not even preemie diapers will fit them. We are in need of cloth diapers made in a variety of small sizes.

Infant Gown

Infant Gowns

If an infant needs to be buried, we dress them in one burial gown, and give an identical one to their mother. The gowns may be made from any type of fabric, baby patterns or solid colors are preferred. The gowns may be sewn, knit, or crocheted. The larger gowns may be any color, but the very small gowns need to be gender-neutral in color (green, orange, yellow, white).
