To fight against the boredom of the children, this dad transforms hospital sheets into board games

Spend his days lying in a bed ofhospital, connected to intravenous and machines is far from being a pleasant experience for an adult, so imagine for a child. If an adult can to entertain with the TV or reading a book, a child has trouble staying in the same place without moving the whole day. And the dull and cold atmosphere of the hospital rooms does not help. Think of the child who does not understand what is happening, who is away from home, without his toys and who is forbidden to leave his bed ...

An American has just had a smart idea to remedy this situation! Inspired by his own family, he created sheets covered with board games ! “Because of the space, my wife used our son's bed as an office, but that was until I visited a friend whose son was sick in the hospital. I realized that there was very little stimulation for children confined to their beds and their hospital rooms", Revealed Kevin.

After a long reflection and consultation with many doctors, teachers and parents, Kevin Gatlin founded the company called "Playtime Edventures". With the help of his entourage, he designed the bed sheets Playtime Therapy : “They enlarge the play area of ​​the room and provide children with a place to play, learn, sleep and heal. [… ] With over 50 interactive games, they are the perfect alternative day and night to excessive viewing of television, electronic devices and boredom.

It took Kevin more than two years to design the sheets on which board games are printed. And everyone can buy these sheets for their children. Another important aspect of the project is to have the opportunity to make a Don to those who need it most. Users have also allowed to distribute 3,000 sheets free. The company also offers the opportunity to choose a specific organization or person that you want to help.

On the site Playtime Edventures, we learn that the company works in partnership with hospitals for children, shelters for children and international organizations of help worldwide : "We think our bedding products create a soothing distraction for children forced to live in safe places due to circumstances beyond their control."If you like the idea and want to support Playtime Edventures, see the company's website. In the same style, we recommend you to consult the idea of ​​the young American Ella Casano who created a teddy bear to defeat his fear of infusions.
