Wrapping it up!
This week at the Spectrum in Asheville we wrapped up our semester unwrapping Christmas
presents! We jumped head first into the holiday spirit with gingerbread cookie cutouts made of clay. We
danced to Christmas music as we not only created cookies but also the placemats to put our cookies on.
Santa will be very impressed (let’s just hope he doesn’t bite into these cookies). After our placemats were
set we joined forces and made a giant gingerbread house! Everyone put their most creative foot forward
and built a house Hansel and Gretle would’ve definitely been tempted to eat. Next, we played a game of
holiday inspired charades. We finished up with a gift pass and everyone got to go home with a goodie-bag
in true holiday spirit. This was an amazing end to one amazing semester!
I’d like to take this time to first thank our interns. To say this was an amazing semester would be
an understatement. Your creative efforts and the time you put fourth are immensely appreciated and I’m
sure the kids would agree. This semester was a success because of you guys and we extend our sincerest
appreciation. I would also like to take this time to thank the parents of the Spectrum who without, we
would not be here. We are extremely thankful for the time and effort you put forth to bring your kids
every week. Each and every child helped make this experience one none of us will forget and I hope they
enjoyed it as much as we have.
To wrap this up I would finally like to say thank you for this experience myself. I have
thoroughly enjoyed bringing the blog to you every week and getting to know everyone. I hope you have
all enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed bringing our experience to you. I wish each and every one
of you the best holiday wishes!
