You might be surprised by what toys, supplies and activities children’s hospitals really need. The sweet spot for buying new toys for kids in hospital is 3 – 19 so it’s very often that children aged 0 – 3 and 12 – 18 get forgotten.
The Kids’ Cancer Project has most major hospitals covered with cuddly teddy bears so think about craft items that are used every day like coloured pencils, crayons and felt markers, modelling clay, Lego, Duplo, craft kits, science and medical play kits.
