Things are getting exciting here. A buzz of owenge energy. My amazing Little Warrior angels have been busy helping … tracing, cutting, organizing, counting little beads. All of this in preparation for Saturday – the 3rd annual Little Warrior Christmas Ornament Drive!
These early Saturday mornings are magical. The children are excited, the room is booming with sound, the glue is flowing and the sequins are everywhere. Absolute magic! Little hands leave covered in magic marker and love in their hearts. I love the smile on all the kid’s faces … even the tears of the little one who realize they aren’t taking their project home with them. It’s all about the learning. About giving love to others. The kids take such pride in their work – carefully writing their name and age on the back of each ornament. They run from table to table, seeing how many stars they can earn. They are proud as their number of completed ornaments gets higher and higher.
Volunteers give an entire morning teaching little ones. Coaching the children on not only to how to make the ornaments but also the importance of what they are doing. Parents spend time with their children on their laps, helping them trace their hands … all to make a stranger’s Christmas a little brighter.
I’m getting excited about Saturday. I hope you’ll bring your little ones by! Bring your grandkids, nieces/nephews, godchild or any special little one! Come see what it’s all about. Come any time between 9am – noon. Come when you can and leave when you must. There is no time limit or requirement. Make 1 ornament or make them all 6 times 🙂
