My favorite find of the month this month is an organization named“Hope Has Fun”. Founded by 10-year-old Isabella, Hope Has Fun brings the power of play to children in the hospital. Their current project is to collect items for Operation Smile’s Child Life program. This project will be open for anyone to participate in until May 2016 when they will give the donations to Operation Smile Child Life programs around the world. I am personally a huge supporter of Operation Smile’s Child Life program so I feel this is an incredible way to help out in the Child Life community. Way to go, Hope Has Fun!

For our grand finale of our theme week we decided to have a World Fair! We had stickers, passports, globe stress balls, and globe headbands to hand out to the kiddos that came by (all purchases from oriental trading.)
As for crafts, kids could either travel to Brazil to make carnival headdresses or to Venice, Italy to make carnival masks.
Materials for carnival headdresses:
– foam visors
– foam shapes
Materials for carnival masks:
– plastic masks
– glitter glue
The supplies we ordered for today’s craft still haven’t come in so we improvised and made flags!
– paper flags (oriental trading)
– foam shapes
Today we traveled to Egypt where we used casting materials to make our own mummies!
– Popsicle sticks
– googly eyes
– tissue paper
– sticky casting wrap
– cotton casting wrap
