What an incredible day Chicktime Austin had! Poetry writing with Symone was a huge success! The girls got to try their hands at one of their favorite annual events. Each participant received their own journal and learned all about the various styles of poetry by our very own special guest! Symone Hernandez was a published poet at the age of of nine!
The girls got the chance to practice writing Haiku, Sonnet and various other forms. They had the chance to share with each other, learn about poetry, receive a journal, fellowship with popcorn and each other and win prizes! Six winners were awarded for most participative, willingness to share, and most decorated journal! All in all it was a great day and the girls had a ton of fun! Until the next time!!!

Drop off complete, super excited to see the what the girls come up with as their finished products “Showing Gratitude in a Tangible Way”! Each jar contains a chalk tag label, a string or piece of twine and some decorative
to tie around the lids! What a fun and easy craft! I can’t wait to see and hear about the finish products and celebrate all the thankfulness this holiday season!

Thankful and blessed that we all survived Snovid 2021. Now we can focus on our upcoming Chicktime workshop and spending some quality time with our beloved non-for-profit charity The Settlement Home.
With the drop off complete we are excited to get a little craft time in. Let’s see what magical creations we can come up with. I can’t wait to pop in and see everyone this Saturday!
Our volunteers getting ready to meet with our charity partner! We had a wonderful time helping them to decorate journals and talk about the importance of journaling.
Our cookie decorating supplies were dropped off and we had a wonderful zoom session for the cookie decorating workshop.
Drop off for November workshop! Jigsaw puzzles for the girls to do while we visit with them on Zoom!
So very happy to bless our kiddos with our October drop off workshop. They each get a goody bag of Halloween goodies, a tiny pumpkin to decorate (that they can keep forever because they are plastic), stickers, paints and paintbrushes.
We are so excited to “see” our kiddos on Zoom today! When I dropped off their workshop supplies for our Nail Polish Art (decorating pencils with nail polish). We also supplied them with some flower pots, foam to put in them, paints to decorate them and some cute flower stickers. We gave them a sweet treat. My eyes started to water when I pulled in – so wanting to be back in person but not until at least December.
Baskets delivered for our poetry workshop on Saturday…complete with some yummy cake pops!
We’re not gonna let “Rona” stop us from spending time with our Settlehome Family. We were able to spread a little sunshine
by dropping off a goody basket for our girls! We can’t wait to virtually connect with them on Saturday.
Chicktime Austin is having a Back to School Supply Drive…..Can you help us?
The Settlement Home sent us this needs list:
Pencils (not mechanical), colored pencils/crayons, hand sanitizer, tissues and composition notebooks ( no spirals).
reach out to
Chicktime Austin will not be meeting in the month of May. As much as we miss our workshops and time with our Chicktime kids we want to keep everyone safe! We hope to resume things soon.
If you have any ideas on how you can love the girls from a distance like sending cards, snacks or activities….let us know. We will ask our charity partner how you can fulfill your idea and help you as much as we can be a blessing to our sweet girls!
Sending our love,
Chicktime Austin Leadership Team

Another Chicktime Austin event in the record books! Our poetry writing was a success. Each participant was given a journal so they can begin their own path of self expression translating their own thoughts, feelings, and words into their own lyrical masterpiece. Our guest speaker, Symone Hernandez, encouraged the girls to write freely and from the heart! What a powerful and spiritual event.
We had a fun time learning how to organize our drawers and how to efficiently put away our laundry!
Thank you Joanne for teaching our girls this awesome life skill!
