This Power Play For The Holidays #PowerImagination post is close to my heart because I didn’t share something with you last year. Last year, during the week of Christmas, we were one of the many families with a child admitted in a children’s hospital.
Each year, thousands of children and their families spend time in Canadian hospitals over the holidays. For children staying in the hospital, often something as simple as a new working toy or game can help make a child’s hospital stay a little brighter, by giving them the power to imagine a better tomorrow.
Duracell believes in powering the imagination of sick children by helping to ensure kids can still be kids, and enjoy the magic of the season even in the midst of illness. For the 10th year in a row Duracell will be donating a year supply of batteries to hospital playrooms across the country to power smiles this holiday season and beyond.
Canadians can get involved too. For every pack of Duracell batteries sold at Walmart in December 2016, Duracell will donate to Children’s Miracle Network. The goal this year is to raise $150,000.
It’s a win-win because there’s nothing more disappointing than a child receiving a toy on Christmas morning to find that it’s powerless. With your purchase, not only will you be powering your family’s holiday joy, you’ll also help make a child’s hospital stay a little brighter.

#PowerImagination with Bop It!
For a holiday toy donation…or as a present to give to a loved one…Bop It! is a game for all ages.
My 5 year old can play alone. My 13 year old can play alone. My 5 year old and 13 year old and I can all play together (you can’t say that about many games!). We even had a family Bop It! off where 6 of us passed the Bop It! around turn after turn.
Bop It! is a game of listening and action. There are several modes of play (so it’s like 3 games in one). Plus, (and I love this) there are different sound levels (thank you to whoever thought of that). So you can play LOUD when there’s a crowd or QUIET when a certain 5 year old’s sisters are sleeping.
Play is such an important part of childhood. Last year in the hospital, playing with toys meant taking a break from the hospital routines. This year, playing with toys means fun family time together. Every year, wherever you are, play promotes creativity.
And a little creativity always makes you feel good.
