Pediatric Hospital Boxes
Join us in bringing joy and creativity to pediatric hospitals
What is a Pediatric Hospital Art Box?
Our Pediatric Hospital Art Boxes are original, specially-designed, activity kits filled with projects and crafts featuring:
*our original Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture Lesson,
*a sketch journal and markers,
*a picture frame craft kit, and
*a wooden car or flower for designing
Are there therapeutic benefits for the children?
Yes! Engaging the creative process is scientifically proven to have therapeutic benefits. From isolation units to oncology and heart transplant departments, no matter what these beautiful, young patients are going through, each child can benefit tremendously from being able to get a real break and engage in artistic creativity and self-expression, giving them positive, uplifting, and joyful experiences during an otherwise challenging time.
Are the projects and supplies safe?
Yes! All supplies have been vetted by designated labs to ensure complete safety along with receiving approval from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for patients 5+.
What do the patients do with their works of art once they complete their projects?
That’s the best part! They will have several projects to display around their hospital room, transforming it into their own art gallery! Being able to look at what they have created, and what they can do can be so heartening during a challenging time, and it can provide an incredible platform for dialogue, allowing the conversation focus to be on their amazing creations.
Can I purchase more than one?
Yes! The more you purchase, the more hospitalized children get to experience a true respite from whatever they’re facing and be soothed and strengthened by the healing power of their own creativity. Each of our Pediatric Hospital Art Boxes are just $50 and come in a bright, cheerful red!
Can I purchase Pediatric Hospital Art Boxes any time throughout the year?
Yes! There are always children in need of support and we feel that this is a deeply-needed campaign that should be accessible to all pediatric patients at all times. You may order any time.
Who can order?
Absolutely everyone and anyone – individuals, families, schools, Girls Scouts, Boys Scouts, organizations, companies. Please contact us for bulk orders or special charity drives.
