Keep cooped-up children busy with free Royer’s Kids Club activity pages

The coronavirus pandemic already is altering our lives in ways that would have seemed unimaginable just weeks ago.

Instead of going to school, participating in sports or visiting friends, children will be home. And while nothing is better than having the whole family together, it can lead to stressful moments.

Keeping the kids busy is important. The Royer’s Kids Club can help.

We have a bunch of activity pages that can be downloaded for free from our website.

Children can:

  • Give a Royer’s delivery truck a fresh look
  • Decorate the exterior of a Royer’s store for spring
  • Test their sense of direction in a flower maze
  • Challenge their reading skills with a word find

What’s more, we’d love to share some of the completed work on our social media pages. Just take a photo of the page(s) and email them to marketing@royers.com.

We know these are challenging times, but we’ll get through them together. In the meantime, we hope everyone stays healthy and productive.

We look forward to seeing you in person at a future Royer’s Kids Club event.

 

Irish eyes were smiling at St. Patrick’s Day kids club event

It was the top o’ the morning and the afternoon at the March 14 Royer’s Kids Club event.

Children ages 5 to 12 had an opportunity, at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m., to make a special mum character in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Thanks to everyone who joined us for what is one of our most popular yearly events.

This year’s remaining kids club events are scheduled for June 27, Aug. 15 and Nov. 7.

The best way to stay on top of kids club happenings is to become a kids club member. It’s free and includes a membership card and welcome kit; online activity pages; and our quarterly email newsletter, Buds.

She won a Royer’s Kids Club contest in first grade, now Emily Swanger is heading to college

Emily Swanger, left, a former Royer’s Kids Club member, with Candace Oliver, manager of our flagship Lebanon store.

It’s not hard to still see the first grader in Emily Swanger, although she’s much taller now and long ago outgrew her “Cool Chick” T-shirt.

Emily had worn the shirt the last time we photographed her, on the day in November 2007 that Royer’s delivered a bouquet of carnations to her at South Lebanon Elementary School in Lebanon County. The rest of her classmates and teachers each received a carnation.

The special delivery was Emily’s reward for being the grand-prize winner that October during the Royer’s Kids Club’s first birthday party.

Emily, who graduated from Cedar Crest High School this spring, said her mother, Norma, regularly brought her to kids club events, which have always been open to children ages 5 to 12.

“My mom said I wanted to keep coming after I was too old,” Emily quipped.

At Cedar Crest, Emily was nominated for senior of the year and with a classmate took first place in a Future Business Leaders of America competition in the category of hospitality management. This summer she is working at the Jigger Shop in Mount Gretna and interning at Gerhart Financial Services in Lebanon, with a mission trip to Costa Rica in the middle.

In August, Emily will begin her studies at Cairn University near Philadelphia, where she plans to major in business administration and minor in Spanish.

She also made time in July to come by our flagship Lebanon store.

At Royer’s invite, Emily helped to recreate the photo of her with her bouquet that had appeared in the Lebanon Daily News in 2007. This time, Candace Oliver, manager of the Lebanon store, posed with Emily; Candace held a bouquet of carnations while Emily held the newspaper clipping.

With a series of photos taken, Candace gifted the bouquet to Emily.

Along with that, we wish her the best of luck in college.

 

 

Red Lion sixth-grader wins Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest

Madalyn Yorgy of Red Lion, York County, is a creative 11-year-old.

“She loves crafts and theater,” said her mother, Rachel. “She loves to sing.”

Madalyn, who will be entering sixth grade, shoots movies, draws and colors adult coloring books.
“You name it,” Rachel said, “and she makes it.”

That experience no doubt contributed to her winning this year’s Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Her colored design of flowers and the words, “Bloom: It’s your birthday!,” will be featured on the electronic card that kids club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. Madalyn’s prize is a free flower delivery on her next birthday.

The Royer’s Kids Club is free to ages 5 to 12. With parental permission, children may register for the kids club at any Royer’s store or at royers.com/kidsclub. Kids club benefits include a membership card, online activities, a quarterly e-mail newsletter, contests and in-store events.
