May Highlights
Smiling teenage and adult volunteers gathered on a beautiful Saturday morning in May to work with the girls and babies of Casa de Milagros. The wonderful volunteers whisked the babies away for some fun in the sun while their moms learned different things to do with cookie cutters! We were blessed to work with 18 moms!

We started out by making magnets out of craft foam. The girls used their cookie cutters to trace and cut out butterflies, rabbits, tulips, and flowers, then embellished them with colorful sequins and jewels. The final step was to attach a magnet on the back, perfect to hang up their toddler’s artwork! Next, they made homemade play dough, a recipe they can use with their own children one day! Finally, they made their own snacks by decorating sugar cookies that had been cut out with what else, but cookie cutters! They also used the cookie cutters to cut out turkey and cheese shaped sandwiches.

It was hard to tell which activity the girls liked the best! One thing was for sure though, cookie cutters ruled that day in May! Each girl left with a set of cookie cutters to use with their children to create memories and have fun!
Many Blessings!
