January 30 - DeVos Children's Hospital

An Afternoon at DeVos Children’s Hospital, Grand Rapids, January 30th, 2015

By Erin Jenkinson: For A Day Foundation DeVos Children's Hospital Chairperson

“Do you want to build a Snowman?” What a fun way to celebrate January and all the snow in Grand Rapids! We brought Olaf to life at DeVos Children’s hospital this afternoon. Every child enjoyed crafting their very own Olaf! Even the bigger kids pulled themselves away from the video games to join in on the snowman making fun!  I guess Olaf has a special place for every heart. I also brought out the glitter tattoo’s and boy were they a hit! One very special young lady jumped in and became the patient/tattoo artist’s. She was so excited to give everyone a tattoo, including a golden cobra tattoo on the police officer who came to hang out with us for the afternoon. Speaking of police officer’s, Officer Canine King joined us for the afternoon craft party, Officer King is also known as the DeVos Hospital resident canine police dog. The kids loved having King with us for the afternoon. All and all the afternoon was filled with canine kisses, crafting and cool glittery tattoos.
