    For Kaya Day, will my daughter need to be there the entire time from 10 until 4 PM?   Or, are there reoccurring activities?

    We have tow other children with other activities that day is why I'm asking.

    Scott - The Kaya Day activities will be ongoing throughout the day, so you can come and go as you please. The Kaya doll drawing will take place at 3:30 p.m., so you'll want to be here before then to put in your ballot. You need not be present to win the doll.
