We are so grateful for the families who participated in this project with Great Lakes Hospice! Our KIC families tied over 20 blankets that were delivered to the residents at this location. The blankets were full of color and several included a special hand written note from the kids who worked hard to tie each strand! The hospice coordinator was so happy to receive them all and said the blankets will bring a smile those who are comforted by them and most likely will remind them of their own grandchildren!
KIC partnered with Harbor Chase for an intergenerational holiday event. Three families brought holiday cheer to the residents by signing carols and making snowmen and penguin crafts. The fun afternoon concluded with cookies for the kids and residents! This event definitely spread holiday cheer to all who were involved!
It may not feel like spring outside but we made it feel like spring inside at our St Johns playgroup. Our theme was rainbows! We read a rainbow book, sang a rainbow song, made a rainbow craft and played some rainbow games. Joy was spread by all 🙂
Toddlers and Kids on a mission helped to support the Boys and Girls Club that serves an average of 5,000 youth every day throughout the greater Milwaukee area. Their mission is to provide safety and support during critical hours of the day as well as meals, strong role models, organized athletics and access to the arts. Our families worked together last Saturday morning decorating 180 snack bags and then packing them full of healthy snacks. The snack bags are distributed to children in the Boys and Girls Club who miss the dinner in their after-school program or may not eat when they arrive home.
