Chicktime Winchester needs YOU! We are looking for a new children’s charity to partner with. If you have any ideas please contact Amanda. We are hoping to gear back up in a few months but at this time we don’t have any Chicktime Events on the calendar.
For the month of December, the Grafton Leo Club led the children at the Evan’s Home in creating special Christmas gifts for loved ones. Children rotated between three centers in order to create gifts for the extraordinary people in their lives. In one center, children made cards in which they could express gratitude. In another center, the children made specialized ornaments. In the final center, they made jars of cookie mix. This center encouraged the children to do their own measuring of the ingredients and ribbon. The children were very proud of their creations and excited to share them at Christmastime!
This month Amanda Smith led the children at the Evans Home in adding to their Halloween costumes. Children decorated customized masks. The creativity flowed which led to a variety of masks, from animals, to superheros, to flames, to feathers and sequins. Each child ended with their own cool addition to their costume 😎 The fun afternoon ended with a game of football on a beautiful fall day!
This month, Chicktime got in touch with fall 😉 Each child at the Evans Home decorated their own pumpkin. The kids were so creative with the paint. They made new colors and tried various ways of decorating! Some were tie dyed, some were sports themed, some were polka-dotted, and the list goes on. Each one of these wonderful kids ended up with a colorful fall decoration for their room
Chicktime helped the children at the Evans Home decorate notebooks for the new school year. Patricia Hott led this creative August event. The children loved picking out their own paper, stickers, and ribbon. They then used the supplies to create their unique journals, which reflected their personal styles
Chicktime Winchester had an incredible first event with the Evans Home this past Saturday! The Evans Home was very welcoming to us (and our icing mess 😉 ). The children greatly enjoyed learning the basics of cookie decorating, led by Chicktime founder Amanda Hott. After learning to prep the materials and practicing for a while, each child decorated cookies to enjoy later. There was a slight break in the activities, during which the kids made some hilarious icing facial hair on themselves. After licking the extra icing off, the kids got down to business and made some very creative designs. It was especially touching to see how freely they shared their treats with each other and their house parents, during clean-up. This was a great way to start off Chicktime Winchester
