**All Chicktime Cincy volunteers are required to complete a Volunteer Packet before serving at Lighthouse!!**
Thank you to everyone who came out to our first workshop with Lighthouse! This month, we made dream catchers with the girls. As we talked about life, love, and our dreams with the girls, we also made sure they knew that Chicktime Cincinnati is here to stay & we plan on making many, many more memories with them! The girls all received their own journals to write down their dreams and goals in as well!
Chicktime Cincy is busy preparing for our 1st workshop with Lighthouse and we are SO excited!!
Thank you to Tessa (aka the sweetest Volunteer Coordinator ever) for hanging out with us this afternoon and helping us get prepared to serve!!
Artists at work creating designs at our event while promoting recycling and snacking on Fall Snack Cakes – yum! The kids put their initials on their creations when we realized we had two sisters with the same initials! We laughed. Nice to see more teen girls in our group. They were all beautiful and a joy to talk to today. They all told us they love crafting.
Much thanks to Sonja for all your help and our shelter coordinator, Kate, for all you do to make our events successful!
Chicktime Cincy meets Chicktime Indy!!
Chicktime Cincinnati chapter leader, Rosetta Keller, traveled to attend Chicktime Indy’s September workshop to get ideas from one of the craftiest people out there~Patty Homoky….who by the way is Chicktime Indy’s chapter leader!
This certainly tells it like it is…..We are a family!!!
The Chicktime Family!!
Chicktime Cincy left with new ideas and a deeper bond with Chicktime!
Our charity partner called to let us know we need to cancel our August event today that starts at 3:15. Schools are starting here and they had a transportation problem. The kids won’t arrive in time to make our event. We are trying to reschedule but not sure we can. Waiting to hear if they have another open day for us in August. We will keep you posted.
We know how to beat the heat with ice cream, Disney’s Moana movie & games for our July event! Something we learned this month at Chicktime is that if you bring bubbles and bubble wands to your workshop…. The soapy bubbles make clean up a snap!
Chicktime is really this easy….give a little time, play a game or two…
And Bam!! Hearts of children are changed forever!
We would love for you to join us next month at Chicktime August!
Pennies, pennies everywhere as we played the penny toss game. The grand prize was awarded to little Miss M who came in 1st place. Yay! We also met the shelter’s new summer intern, Andrew, who helped us chase pennies. Welcome aboard Andrew!!! Thank you Sonja for volunteering at today’s event!
We have many single mothers at our shelter who deserve a special treat for Mother’s Day. We celebrated our moms with gifts and healthy snacks at our event! We potted flowers and decorated picture frames while enjoying a sunny day outdoors. We love our moms!
Thanks so much Sonja for leading the event and bringing Katie to help!! You did a great job!!!
Competition was tough at Chicktime’s Easter Egg Toss to win baskets full of goodies. We also learned that we have super powers to save others just like super heroes! We used our power of sending love by making a yard sign giving thanks to our shelter. Then, we used our power of laughter by acting out actions in a card game that made us giggle. Our super powers really work!! Thanks Aprina being our teacher. Thanks also to Michelle & Sonja for volunteering.
We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a green theme! Green artwork, beads and fun games. Even the snacks were green with apples and grapes!
Our kids took turns playing Simon Says and winded down with reading time. So much fun!! Thank you Aisha for leading the event. Also many thanks to Kathy Henry, Kate Calhoun and the rest of our great volunteers.
At the request of our charity partner, Interfaith Shelter, we are changing the date of our March workshop to March 15th. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that YOU can still join us!
Our kids at Interfaith Shelter were excited to make Valentine cards for their moms at our event today. The kids were bundles of love; greeting us with hugs and giggles.
Thank you Kathy for helping! Welcome to our new volunteers, Erika and Jennifer! We hope to see you at our March event!
If you feel the calling to serve alongside us and lead a workshop this year, please don’t hesitate to contact us and remember, no idea is too big or too small!
Rosetta and Aisha
Our gingerbread house creations were beautiful! The kids had so much fun that they lead us into dance and song to Maroon 5’s, “Sugar”. The event wrapped up with piggyback rides from the Chicktime girls.
Thank you Kathy & Aisha! Great job Aisha Butler for leading the event!
We hope YOU will join us for Chicktime February!!
