Children love helping out their community, and Children’s Hospital Colorado has two ideas for how kids can help other kids during this crisis. They are now accepting donations of homemade masks and fleece blankets which are presented to patients admitted to the hospital. All ages of children can create (or help create!) the fleece blankets using this tutorial. Masks are a better project for ages 10 and up, depending on ability. Children’s Hospital Colorado requests that mask-makers follow guidelines recommended by the CDC. Blanket and mask donations can be made via appointment. Find more information here.
