Campus Carnival for Kids: Saving Fairytale Land
The Malone University student outreach group, SCOPE (Students Committed to Outreach for Persons with Exceptionalities) along with Pioneer Athletics will present the fifth annual Campus Carnival for Kids, Thursday, March 26, 2015, from 6-8 p.m. in Osborne Hall gymnasium on the campus located at 2600 Cleveland Avenue N.W. in Canton, Ohio. There is no charge for this annual, fun-filled event, designed for children with special needs along with their friends and families. Reservations are required - Register online!
Everything is FREE!
Children with severe challenges are encouraged to attend.
We encourage parents and caregivers to accompany their children throughout the carnival as guests. Every activity and carnival game station has been specifically designed to differentiate instruction based on the needs of each child, thus the event promises an evening of fun for children with special needs as well as their elementary school-aged siblings. Children with severe challenges are encouraged to attend.
This year's carnival takes on the theme, "Malone's Big, Big Backyard of Science Fun," as each activity allows children to play with and assist a favorite woodlands creature:
The tongue-tied frog needs help zapping flies,
The confused, discouraged ants need directions,
The honeybees can't make honey without more nectar,
Mrs. Possum has too many babies to carry to safety,
Mr. Bat can't find his way home,
and so much more!!
In the center of the gym you'll find special opportunities to make nature crafts, play carnival games to win prizes, and even watch a science lab show!
Also, children may cross the woods to where Kappa Delta Pi – the national education honor society – will offer a storybook meadow for quiet reading time.
Carnival in front of Osborne Hall
Please enter campus through the gated 25th Street entrance and park in the lot in front of Osborne Hall. Malone students will be stationed in the parking lot for those needing assistance.
The Carnival is wheelchair accessible.
