Community agency needs volunteer crafters PDF Print E-mail

Calling all crafters and those looking for ways to volunteer. Services to Adults and Youth is in need of volunteers to help create toys and activities for infants and toddlers.

“Although many of these activities may seem simple and are quite easy to construct, they really serve a dual purpose. They promote parental involvement while also enriching the baby’s early development,” said Robin Brock, STAY’s clinical supervisor.

The items are part of the “parents as teachers” curriculum, which focuses on enhancing school readiness by reaching children during their formative years.

The model is designed to help parents interact with their children to develop age-level skills, while having fun and learning together, said Brock.

STAY needs volunteers to help construct various items. Instructions and some materials are provided, but people who can devote time to putting together the activities through simple sewing, cutting and gluing, or other assembly, are needed most, she said.

Examples include a “tummy time” touch blanket that has nine different pieces of fabric sewn together so a baby can learn from touching. Others include a face pattern book, tracking toy and “feely book.”
