Craft Station

Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House aims to bring fun to the lives of all 177 families living in our House in a variety of ways. Kids of all ages, including parents and grandparents, love putting together crafts. We appreciate your help in bringing fun to their lives in this unique way!

How it Works

You can donate items to help us stock our craft room or put together individual craft packs for our guest families to complete.

When donating items for our craft room, here are some great items to consider:

  • Canvas posters
  • Paint brushes
  • Crayons
  • Colored pencils
  • Washable markers
  • Dry erase markers
  • Construction paper
  • Safety scissors
  • Glue sticks
  • Pipe cleaners, googly eyes, cotton balls, popsicle sticks, etc.

When preparing a craft pack, please make sure each bag has everything a child would need to complete the craft. Children may not have access to additional supplies if they are in the hospital or unable to leave their room. The following guidelines will help you plan a successful experience:

  • Please label each pack with the contents included and the directions, if needed.
  • Indicate the targeted age range.
  • Only include non-toxic, washable materials.
  • Moist hand wipes for messier crafts are much appreciated.
