· HolidayDecorating of the hospital playroom, a large room with activities for all agesthat gives children a place to play with their friends and family outside oftheir hospital room. An hour ortwo on a Saturday morning (prior to a holiday) playing with the kids anddecorating the room together is a memorable experience for both volunteers andchildren.
