In an effort to promote creativity and enrich children’s lives through creative expression, CRE8TIME, a consumer initiative created by the Craft & Hobby Association Foundation, has partnered with leading arts and crafts specialty retailer Michaels and The Rit Studio to host a “Kids Crafting Day” on April 2, 2015, from 9 a.m.– 4 p.m. EDT at the Bradley  Hospital in East Providence, Rhode Island.

During the Kids Crafting Day event, children attending Bradley Hospital’s various inpatient and partial programs will participate in a day filled with creative projects. These mixed media crafting activities will be made possible with products supplied by Michaels and The Rit Studio. Craft specialists from The Rit Studio as well as staff from the CHA and Andrea Atwater, representing Craft Attitude, will lead the craft projects.

Bradley Hospital is licensed by the Department of Children, Youth and Families, and provides a range of family-focused, high-quality mental health care to infants, children, adolescents and young adults with emotional disorders and/or developmental disabilities.

Live updates from the event will be posted on the CRE8TIME Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.
