 June Highlights:

    When speaking to my co-leader Natalie Romero about the activity she would be leading for the kids, I understood that we were all in for a treat, not only creatively, but also fun, challenging and informative! For this activity, all the volunteers teamed up to bring recycled material from their homes, to embark on a journey of self discovery and relationship building through the creation and construction of a “dream car”.

We got into teams of 3 and 4 participants, combining volunteers and FBCH children, and spent 1 hour and a half working on a recycled material car that would race at the end propelled by balloons and straws.

Many of the teams were not able to “figure out the mechanics of a working vehicle”, but sure learned in the process the different aspects of engineering and building.

The winning team received a Chicktime shirt they had been asking for, and a faith inspired book to keep.

  Thank you to all the volunteers that came out to support and partake in this fun activity who shared and expressed their creativity, assistance and motivation!

    A special thanks to Natalie Romero, for leading and guiding us through this process and believing in us  until the end!
