Idea: Art Studio Time

We have what we call "Art Studio" every other Friday afternoon, where our sisters come to do art projects. We will have several projects laid out for them to pick from. They really enjoy this time to come together and be creative. We will use the mini velvet art posters to make homemade cards. And the sisters will use some of the other completed projects to decorate their rooms.

Idea: Cross Canvas

I volunteer at Boston Children's Hospital, and give kids these toys. They are good for putting a smile on the face of a really sick and depressed kid. It helps take their mind off of how sick they are. I tell them that whenever they're feeling down, shake the giggle stick. They love them.

Our plan for the paint is to put painter’s tape on a canvas (8” x 12”) to make a cross. Next you paint over the tape covering the entire canvas with paint.

Idea: Kite Day

The Greene Optimist Club in Beavercreek OH, along with the Beavercreek Parks, Recreation and Culture, stages a Kite Day in April for kids in our area. The kids visit a number of exhibits and vendors offering summer activities - if they visit all the stops (getting stickers as they go along) then we give them a kite. The children love decorating the blank kites then flying them alongside dozens of other decorated kites.

Idea: A Better Experience for Senior Residents

The machine and the cards are used to help our residents enjoy a more rounded experience when they gather for there recreational time with others. Our facility is older, the residents match the facility and our goal is to bring a smile to there faces. It is hard when you are older to shuffle a deck of cards, the machine will make it better as the equipment will help and replace the hands. The cards also help as they are designed to show a broader range of size to the person holding the cards. I fully expect a better experience for our residents through the use of technology and card display. As we are a poor group, any kindnesses from your organization to try out are truly appreciated as we do not have large balances as we are State run and limited on funding. So any philanthropy on your end is always appreciated. Thank you.

Idea: Sensory for Mental Health

I'm a mental health therapist and I'll be using the clear glue in a couple of ways. One way we use it is to make sensory bottles. The kids put glitter, confetti, beads, various other items in a clear shatter-proof bottle, add clear glue, and then add distilled water to make a calming tool. The glue allows the items to move slower in the bottle. We also use the clear and white glue to make non-toxic SLIME!! There are various recipes on YouTube, but my favorite is "fluffy" slime which includes clear glue, saline solution, food coloring, and shaving cream. Make sure to keep your slime in a plastic bag when its not in use for several days worth of play!

Idea: Play Therapy

I will be using the products I purchased today in Play Therapy with my clients ages 3+ to begin to help children feel safe, help them express feelings, teach coping skills, and to instil hope again. Children will draw a safe place on the pillow cases. The children will draw a safe and happy place on the pin wheels and later use the pinwheel for breathing and calming down when anxious. The timer is to help parents and kids to take “time outs” when anxious. The bubbles also teach children to breathe and calm down. All of the products will help children reduce anxiety PTSD symptoms. I am a NJ Registered Play Therapist with a private practice. I also work for a company to provide trauma focused Play therapy to children.

Idea: Tea Tray Gifts

Yes! I plan to paint and/or stain each tray in various colors/designs and decoupage the bottom of the tray with different designs. Each tray is for a different female family member (Mom, mother-in-law, sister and sisters-in-law). I’m making them each a tea tray “station” so they’ll get a decorative tray to hold the other little goodies I’m purchasing.
