Oh man did we have fun today at our holiday party!! We made snow globes and lanterns, had a delicious holiday meal, played the present pass game, and opened gifts with our girls today.
It is always so amazing spending the few hours bringing excitement and joy to these young girls every month. 🥰♥️
We honored our military at Chicktime making Paracord bracelets to send overseas today and had so much fun doing it! Right after Jessica and her daughter went down to meet the Dayton chapter for some fun and games. Chicktime Akron is so proud to be part of such a strong sisterhood of chapters helping girls and women across the country. 😊♥️🥰
🥰Special thank you to our leader Hema for giving us the gift of henna today.
Our girls had so much fun getting their henna designs…
Look at the details!
Our volunteers had so much fun learning and playing a new card game called bumper with the girls! So many smiles and laughs shared today. 🥰
Today was so fun! We made a bunch of origami projects – from foxes (and boxes) to flowers! #chicktime
This weekend we had a great time making decorated letters, washi necklaces and hanging out with the girls. Always a positive and rewarding experience. 💕 #chicktime
Today we made empowerment jars.
We found words that related to us from magazines and created jars to store things in.
Some girls are storing candy, some said money, others said they would write something nice about themselves or someone they love every day to review at the end of the year.
We love our Chicktime girls!!
We had a little rain on our cookout today…so we improvised!
Our girls were so excited about our henna event next month that they wanted to do some today. Special thanks to Hema and Kelley for coming out and volunteering with us today. Make sure to join us next month for more henna fun.
Beauty on a budget was a hit! We learned tips and tricks for applying makeup. #slay
Earlier this week we got to meet the founder of Chicktime, Lori Rhodes.
We had a wonderful time and we have so many great things ahead for Chicktime Akron!
Lori’s vision for Chicktime Chapters in every group home across the Nation is breathtaking!
The Chicktime website has details on how that vision got started and we encourage you to read it and join us here in Akron as we carry out the mission!
Chicktime Akron had our first successful event today!!!
We planted pallet veggie gardens. Our girls are homeless between 16-22. Now we have planted cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, watermelon, and cantelope for them to have healthy options to eat this summer! We had a little pizza party also!
