This week, our CREW after school programs are hosting their annual Fall Art Fairs. The students have worked together the last few weeks to create different projects to sell to their friends and families. Some of the projects include clay creations, holiday ornaments, sock snowmen, and homemade sugar scrub.  Each school will have a table set up in their pick-up area and the students will get to promote and sell their artwork to everyone who walks by. All the money raised will be used to buy the gifts for the children our CREW program sponsors through Holiday Wishes. ...

Two of our sweet friends busy prepping for our Thanksgiving Feasts this week. ...

Are you ever looking for a fun activity to keep your kiddos busy on a rainy day? Look no further than this fun science experiment with supplies straight from your kitchen.

All you need is a cupcake pan, baking soda, food coloring, vinegar, and a pipette (or spoon).

First, pour a little bit of baking soda and a few drops of food coloring in each section of the cupcake pan. Then let the children drip the vinegar in and watch magic happen!

If you have an older child (age 3+), you could also add a different food coloring to the vinegar and have them mix colors to create new ones!
