Make Craft Packages for the Happy Cart

Frog Craft Kit

Thank you for volunteering to make craft packets for the St. Jude Happy Cart. The Happy Cart goes around to inpatient rooms several nights a week to offer patients and families a welcome distraction. Crafts should be complex enough to maintain their interest.

See the picture above for an example of a great craft to give you an idea of what is needed as you put your own craft packets together. Visually appealing, quality crafts are highly sought after by patients.

A few tips to keep in mind when making the packets so they can be fully enjoyed by the patients:

Here are things that cannot be used and should be left out of the craft packets:

Once again, thank you for donating your time and resources to make craft packets for the Happy Cart. Patients and families truly enjoy the time they get to spend working on these activities. Please contact Volunteer Services at if you have any other questions.
