Our July workshop was all about a little weird science. We made homemade lava lamps and compared the reaction to hot vs cold. We ate a little pizza and played a little basketball. The kids were so excited that we even wanted to play with them.
The little things.
Just showing up.
We dropped off our January vision boards workshop! It’s a bummer when we forget to take lots of pictures of our monthly workshops . We want everyone to see the work we do at Safe Landing in hopes you will help us one month . We are always looking for someone to lead a workshop, help with supplies or snacks, or show up to help us put on the workshop when we are able to be back on campus!
Our first in person workshop back since Covid hit was canceled. The Leadership team
was so looking forward to being back at Safe Landing, but the cancellation circumstances were beyond our control. We feel grateful that we get the opportunity to be on campus again in November and December and then the goal is for all to be back in January.
Chicktime Akron drop off donations of crafts and games have been a blessing .
We miss getting to know all the girls we get to serve. COVID has impacted all of us, but it can’t stop us from ding-dong-ditching some crafting/art supplies and pizza! 🍕 🎨🥰 We had so much fun shopping for the girls that we didn’t remember to take many photos, but just a few of the things we delivered were:
Anime drawing book
Bubbles (come on, we all love bubbles)
DIY Face Mask kit
Summer tote bags
And a lot more!!
We’re grateful for anyone and everyone who has made donations, big and small. Thank you for empowering us to serve our Akron community!
Hey Chicktime Akron! We hope you are all doing well! We won’t be meeting in May as we continue to try to limit the risk of illness to our Chicktime girls! We hope to be back in June, but in the meantime I just wanted to share a few thoughts….
…I am lucky enough to have an aunt who lives right on the ocean in Florida. After my aunts household and my household both home quarantined for 2 weeks, my daughter, Kylie and I drove down to quarantine together. While here, I kept thinking of our Chicktime girls and how much Rachael, Kylie, and I all miss being with them. I loved the inspirational rock idea, and I pull so much energy and revitalization from the ocean. So! I created inspirational sand and shell jars for our girls. We will write a letter for the house to read to the girls, and ask them to pick a word they identify with or want more of, and use the power of the sand and shells to help give them the strength to become the person they want to be. I can’t wait to drop these off to our girls with some pizza! Even more so, I can’t wait until we can see them again!!
Managing Chicktime Akron Chapter Leader
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!
