Come join us next month at Casa De Milagros. More craft time is on the agenda and this time it’s centered around Valentines Day!
Chicktime San Antonio was blessed to get to hang out with the moms and babies once again at Seton Home’s new emergency shelter, Casa de Milagros.
The moms were divided up and half went to our “cooking” station and the other half went to the “craft” station. The cooking station was led by Annette Goodson, who taught the girls how to make their own hot cocoa and homemade Chex~mix. Annette let the girls sample what they learned to make that day and had containers to allow the girls to take “home” what they made so they enjoy it later. Tori Tyler, one of our teenage chicks led the craft table. She brought piles and piles of colored thread along to teach the girls how to make friendship bracelets.
The bracelets were such a hit that Tori donated her supplies to Casa De Milagros so the girls could continue to make bracelets on their own time. Once the girls were done at one station they rotated to the other station. Our fabulous volunteers worked along side of them. In God’s perfect plan, we had two volunteers present that spoke fluent Spanish, allowing us to communicate with the moms. Praise God.
So the moms could enjoy this downtime, our Chicktime gals babysat. The weather was beautiful and allowed us to take the toddlers and one infant outside. The children were walked in the bye-bye stroller, pushed on a swing and even a little soccer was played. Whew! We give thanks for the volunteers with lots of energy to help do this part of our ministry.
Cookies and punch were the donated, and devoured, refreshments!
