Games to Play

November 19, 2014

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having an awesome day! Did you know that this week is National Games and Puzzles Week? It falls every year on the third week of November, and it’s a week where we get to celebrate all of our favorite types of games. Whether it’s a board game, crossword puzzle, video game, or a computer game (just to name a few), it’s always fun and exciting to play games, especially with friends and family. One of my favorite games is Monopoly because I really like to gather the different properties. (Plus, the game piece that I always use is the dog because it’s so cute!) Max’s favorite game is Sorry. He likes that there’s a card in the game known as a backwards 4 where you get to move a piece backwards. Pretty funny!

What’s your favorite game or puzzle? Be sure to let us know! And don’t forget…have a critterrific fun-filled week!

Novels in November

November 5, 2014

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you had an awesome Halloween. We had a fun time celebrating here at the hospital, and we just took down the decorations today. And while we have to wait a whole year before Halloween comes again, the cool thing is that November is a month with a celebration that you may not know about…until now! So what makes November a month to remember? It’s National Novel Writing Month! What are you going to write about? I think I’m going to write a novel about a girl who can see into the future. Or maybe I’ll write about a whole city of dogs who have to protect themselves against scary cats. But the cats are really afraid of these super powerful mice. Then the dogs and cats have to join up and fight against them. Or maybe I can combine the stories somehow? That’d be awesome.

Be sure to tell us all the details about your novel. We can’t wait to hear your ideas. And don’t forget…have a critterrific month of writing!

Halloween Countdown

October 29, 2014

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I’m so excited for Halloween!!! Yes, it’s my favorite holiday, as I’m sure it’s the favorite holiday of many kids (and adults!) out there. So the big question, of course, is what are you going to be for Halloween? Do you have your costume yet? Did you buy it or make it? This year, Lily is dressing up as a queen, and I’ve narrowed down my Halloween costumes to a few choices. I hope you will help me choose! My ideas are:

  • A cowboy
  • An astronaut
  • A football player
  • A basketball player
  • A soccer player
  • A dog (This is Kwon Do’s pick!)
  • A doctor (This is Dr. Duck Ling’s pick!)
  • A nurse (This is Samantha’s pick!)

What do you think? The most important thing is that no matter what you dress up as this year, be sure to celebrate Halloween the right way. And that means being safe and having adults with you at all times. Don’t eat any candy that hasn’t been looked at by an adult, don’t walk around a neighborhood without an adult, and always use a flashlight when you’re out at night. The best way to enjoy Halloween is to be safe!

From all of us here at McPopper Children’s Hospital, have a Happy (and Safe) Halloween!

Bye for now!

Make it Count

October 21, 2014

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and we decided to do an early post this week to celebrate a really cool and interesting day. It’s Count Your Buttons Day! Yes, today’s the day when we should count the buttons on our different clothes and outfits. How many buttons can you count? The cool thing is that there are so many different kinds of buttons, all with different styles, colors, sizes, and materials. Some buttons are super-fancy and others are extremely plain. Some buttons are circular while others are rectangular or square. Some buttons hold clothes together while others are purely decorative.

What kinds of buttons do you like to wear? Be sure to let us know! And don’t forget, have a critterrific button-filled day!

A Dog’s Life

October 15, 2014

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. Or maybe I should really say that I hope you’re having a pawesome month, since October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! Dogs enrich our lives in amazing ways (just ask Kwon Do!), and there are so many wonderful dogs in shelters who are in need of loving homes. If you or someone you know is looking to welcome a dog into his or her family, shelters are the place to go to find truly terrific and special dogs. Dogs have so much love to give and will change your life in more ways than you can imagine. Adopt a shelter dog today!

Do you have a dog? What’s his or her name? Be sure to give your dog a big hug today and every day.

Bye for now!


Emergency Nurses Week

October 8, 2014

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great day! And speaking of great, we’d like to give a special thank you to all the E.R. nurses out there. They are truly great! This is the week when we get to honor E.R. nurses everywhere for all the hard work that they do each and every day. They are always there day and night helping people feel better, no matter what the problem is, big or small. They dedicate themselves to caring for others, and we are so grateful for all that they do. Max, the Hospital Critterz, and I are so excited to celebrate E.R. nurses everywhere and say…thanks!

Do you know an E.R. nurse? Be sure to give him or her a big hug this week! And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
