It was a successful afternoon filled with self love/care activities at our Chicktime event at D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s! 💕
The smoothie bar was a hit as the kids sipped on delicious, fresh smoothies🍍
The affirmation station allowed the kids to make banners that they can hang in their room to remind them of how worthy they are of love—a few words I saw on their banners included “strong”, “beautiful”, “loyal”.
One child wrote on their banner as a reminder every morning, “my scars do not define me.” 😭🖤
The meditation station focused on mindfulness and breathing techniques to relax and focus on the present. 🧘🏼♀️Even an older highschool boy who is usually “too cool” for all of the activities we do was really excited and engaged in the meditation! And another gave me a hug for the first time because even though he has this cool dude attitude, you can tell he’s thankful we show up every month.
The sun catcher making station allowed the kids to express themselves + how therapeutic! And they got to take something away that can shine light into their lives. Super thankful for all the volunteers that showed up to help with the event! If you’re looking to make an impact in lives, this is a low commitment, amazing way to do so!
Our hearts are full and these kids are amazing!
