    Published: 02/08/2013

    Einstein Healthcare Network is proud to once again be a sponsor of the Philadelphia Flower Show. In addition to being a sponsor, Einstein will host the Einstein Healthcare Network PHS Kids Zone and our medical experts will be giving presentations as part of the PHS Speaker Series.

    Einstein Healthcare Network PHS Kids Zone

    If you go to the show, check out the Einstein Healthcare Network PHS Kids Zone, powered by Sprout, located in Room 204B. In the Einstein PHS Kids Zone, guests will experience engaging new programming and festive décor, including oversized cardboard trees, a white picket fence and kid-sized vegetable cutouts.

    The Einstein PHS Kids Zone – which is open March 2-9 from 10 a.m to 7 p.m. and March 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – will focus on healthy living, and hopes to inform visitors about nature, healthy eating and being kind to others through a series of crafts, games and educational storytimes.

    A creative corner invites children to read a book and color while they sit back and relax on mini bean bags and kid-size tables and chairs. Sprout will host a Be Kind Game, where parents and children will explore a series of physical and mental challenges promoting health and teamwork.

    Back by popular demand, the PHS Plant One Million mural will be located in the Einstein PHS Kids Zone. Visitors will get to decorate a paper leaf and add it to the huge tree, taking the tree from bare to full and lush by week’s end.
