Bracelets & Hairbands
Volunteer to help kids make their own ouch-less bracelets and hairbands with optional decorations (beads or bows). Instructions are found on this webpage: http://www.lifeinthegreenhouse.com/2013/05/diy-creaseless-hair-ties.html
Build Your Own Stethoscope
Help kids make their own stethoscopes out of pipe-cleaners, bottle caps, and other art supplies. We will also have a real stethoscope on hand for them to try out and volunteers can take this opportunity to tell kids a bit about the importance of heart health.
Help kids fill plastic containers with water, glitter, and food coloring to make their own snowglobes!
A long piece of paper (11x 17 inches?) is already painted with a brown trunk (so the kids don’t smear it when they apply their flower paint). There are paper plates with pastel colored tempera (or washable) paint. Each plate has a two liter bottle that is dipped in the paint and applied to the paper. The pattern it transfers is like a cherry blossom – they can “stamp” as many or as few as they want and it will still look great.
If you’re artistically inclined, we need your skills! Sign up to be a traveling or stationary face painter. Kids (and adults) of all ages will be flocking to this booth to have (simple to ornate) animals, flowers, superheroes, butterflies, etc. painted on their faces.
Learn some basic Origami and help teach it to kids! Instruction manuals will be provided.
Volunteer to take photos at a photo booth that we will post to the Carnaval de Salud Facebook page. This booth will help add to the fun atmosphere, making it more exciting and memorable for our patrons and their families.
