Hannibal Children’s Center, a service of Hannibal Regional Healthcare System, celebrated the Week of the Young Child, April 22-28, 2012.  The Parent Forum Group from the Hannibal Children's Center chose the theme “Celebrating Talents Using Our Senses”. Throughout the week, children explored a variety of tastes, sounds, and smells. Children also participated in activities to enhance their team building skills.

Each day of the week children celebrated with special activities and guest presenters.  Some of these included: flower painting, tasting new food prepared by Anna Thomas, Hannibal Regional Hospital Dietician, dancing Zumba style with Katra Thompson , YMCA Instructor, experiencing new instruments with Carla Jarman and Steve Benedict, Hannibal Regional Healthcare System team members; and participating in a soccer scrimmage with parents, Hannibal Regional Medical Group physicians, and Hannibal Regional Healthcare System team members.   During the week the children also created cards for pediatric patients at Hannibal Regional Hospital and participated in Child Abuse Awareness month by wearing blue and walking with pinwheels to show their support for children’s wellness.
