    We’re talking about these board game bedsheets called “Playtime Bed Sheets” that are helping keep kids busy as they battle their illnesses in the hospital.

    Kevin told WCNC that he had always thought the hospital environment was boring and monotonous.

    As of 2019, Kevin is glad to report his sheets are in 10 hospitals that he knows of, but people can actually buy the bed sheets online for $24.99 and donate them to hospitals across the country.
