For an easy and on-going art project, find a space on the floor in the common area where children can play within the sight of parents. Find or buy a roll of large, plain paper. Have a large piece laid out and taped to the floor when the families arrive. On the first night, invite all of the kids and maybe their parents and/or a volunteer to draw, write etc (maybe include everyone's first name.) On the first night, supply washable markers and crayons. On the next night, add stickers and/or tape, scissors and fun paper to cut up. Next night, add glue and glitter, feathers, sequins, etc. Another night, sponges or stamps and one or two colors of paint (washable.) Once a piece is "finished," lay down a new sheet. If it would work better, you can buy each child a sheet of poster board (they can use both sides.) For less than $20, you can get most of what you need at AC Moore in Shopper's World. Depending on how the projects turn out, the paper can make great wrapping paper.

The children enjoyed playing with some home made play dough that one of our volunteers made.

At. Andrew's is having a Alternative Christmas gift event. We think others might find it useful. Beth kindly helped to make up a list of items which are needed at the Center and by families, so people can donate either $10 or $15 for a specific item. I then got Carole Marple on the telephone and she is kindly making us fridge magnets with Alternative Christmas and the name of the church on each one, so we have something to give the donors.
