Another Tuesday has come and gone with fantastic memories made!
This week at The Spectrum, the kids got to choose between three different groups again: outdoor games, Batman!, and a Sonic the Hedgehog group.
Outdoor games reeled most of the kids in with the simple promise of playing games in the sun (all anyone needs to have fun, really). This group had GREAT stuff planned! The interns put together a huge conglomerate of games, including a big four square, twister in the grass, and the traditional and beloved giant parachute!! The parachute had the kids entertained for most of the day, but once the novelty wore off a little, they had no problem directing their attention to the other games.
Batman group at first had no takers, but after about 10 minutes, Dalton wandered up bravely on his own and asked if he could be the sole member! So him and two other interns had a great time playing Batman themed games, making capes, and having very interesting conversations while watching clips of the games and movies.
The Sonic group was also fairly popular, and had members excitedly talking about their favorite characters and their powers! They got to socialize at a table while coloring Sonic and Tails coloring sheets, and played other similar games! They seemed to have very animated conversations and were very polite to each other. It was nice to see!
This week, we sent home buddy cards with the kids, and hopefully they make some connections outside The Spectrum!
Can't wait to see you all next week for our second to last week of the late spring session.
