Lots and lots of bubbles this August Chicktime! Thanks to Jane Nelson we had lots of fun blowing bubbles, making buttons, and playing with a huge parachute. The bubbles were a big hit for the kids and volunteers! We had many tools available to make bubbles of many shapes and sizes. The giant parachute helped us out with a-lot of games and other fun activities. It also easily turned into a fun dome to sit under with a rainbow of colors. The button maker produced many buttons with pre-made and personal sayings. The kids loved putting their own creativity into their buttons! Overall a great Chicktime! Thanks to all the kids, volunteers, and staff for making this all possible!
Who would have thought etiquette and sports agility would go hand in hand. We had such a wonderful day. A special Thank You goes out the the Harty Family for making this day possible and wonderful! We learned how to properly introduce yourself, set the table, and table manners. It is easy to have proper tables manners when you are served delicious fruit salad and mini cakes with frosting and sprinkles. Outside on the basketball court is where things really heated up. A quick warm up consisted of jumping and squatting before the real fun started. It takes a lot of concentration to move your feet: in in out out, without touching the squares on the ground. Everyone enjoyed the friendly competition during the medicine ball relay races. Thank you Harty Family and all the volunteers!
June was made possibly by Tara Johnson and the members of her book club. Thank you! We had a wonderful morning at the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library. Everyone enjoyed making journals, bookmarks, and ice cream. The library gave tours of the beautiful facilities, and donated a special gift to each child. The kids were ecstatic when they were told they could take a book home. What an awesome gift! Thank you again to all who helped make June such a joyful experience for the kids as well as all the volunteers.
What a wonderful morning!! A special thank you to Bonnie Cheatham, Carole Nelms and the staff at Paint Palooza. So many laughs, smiles, dirty paint brushes, and creative dolphins were generated during the May event. All the kids, staff, and volunteers enjoyed the activity. The morning was completed with snacks and drinks.
A special Thanks to Kelly Vizzone and all the volunteers for helping make February a sweet success. The morning started off with an informative history of the origin of Zumba. Then it was time to get busy busting out the moves. We jumped, twisted, spun, shake, ‘made soup’, and ‘washed windows’. After our heart rates were up and the sweat was pouring we slowed down our breathing and stretched our bodies with yoga. What a great way to spend the morning!
