Youth and Family Services' Kids Fair was canceled this year because of the pandemic, but there is still an opportunity to support the organization and bring the fun home to the kids with 'Kids Fair in a Box.'

The box is filled with activities that typically can be found at the Kids fair, that encourage creative play, gross and fine motor skills and literacy. The box may also be a good tool to have for when the cold sets in again, as it’s equipped with many indoor activities. There are nine activities for children ages 3 and up.

  2. One pound of sensory sand
  3. Face paint
  4. Glider airplane assembly kit
  5. Nutrition-focused coloring sheets with crayons

  7. Activity tiles and jump rope

“So really to not have that presence in the community and just even to get to interact with those kids and let alone raising the money, it is hard to see the event not happen and so that is why we created this kids fair in a box,” said Katie Flemming, the YFS Kids Fair Chair.

Limited quantities are available. Price does not include sales tax which will be applied during checkout. Many of the activities can be enjoyed more than once.

“It is great to have something they can do in the home, so it’s a lot of different activities, and many of them they can even reuse, so it’s not a one-and-done,” Flemming said.
