All for the Children is a student-led and student-run activity that serves as a family resource event for our community. 

All for the Children will start off in the morning with fun and free carnival-type activities. There will be costumed characters, information and entertainment booths that are run by 十大娱乐彩票平台 students and different community agencies, and last but not least, a huge egg hunt for the kids! Come join us for a fun day for the family!

About All for the Children


All for the Children aims to improve the quality of life for those within our community through education and community engagement.


The annual All for the Children event was founded by 十大娱乐彩票平台-Blue River instructor Kim Glackin with assistance from fellow instructors. 十大娱乐彩票平台-Blue River also partners with various businesses in the area -- particularly Independence and Blue Springs -- along with the students of the Independence School District's Little Blue Elementary School.

Glackin's hope was to provide a forum for educating families about parenting and child development in a fun and engaging way that builds a support network for families in the area.

Volunteer Opportunities

All for the Children welcomes community volunteers. Please email if you'd like to volunteer.


For the safety of our attendees, we ask that guests not bring pets, glass or alcohol to the event.

We also ask that all children be supervised by family members at all times during the event.
