INVOLVING CHILDREN IN COMMUNITY PROJECTS-Children’s Hospital Valentine Cards & Care Packages



The past couple February’s, we have sent Valentine Cards to the children at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital ( The usually have a list of needs as well which include things like craft kits, books, games, things for the kids to do while staying in the hospital so we gather some of those items as well and send them with the cards.

Skills We Worked on During This Project:
-Learned about Feelings and Emotions
-Learned about how to care for our bodies so we can try not to get sick
-Talked about Community Helpers like Doctors and Nurses
-Color Recognition
-Worked on Fine Motor Skills
-Pre-Writing Skills
-Planning skills (when we decided what to purchase to send them, and how much)
-Talked about the Postal System
