Over the weekend we were able to visit the 4th Annual Santa’s Workshop, sponsored by The Inspire Foundation, whose mission is to bring music and the arts into the lives of those with special needs, hosted by Trinity New Life Church, visit lots of fun activity tables that the children thoroughly enjoyed, and see Santa himself!
Sponsored by The Inspire Foundation, whose mission is to bring music and the arts into the lives of those with special needs, we were able to go to the 4th Annual Santa’s Workshop hosted by Trinity New Life Church, visit lots of fun activity tables that the children thoroughly enjoyed, and see Santa himself!
The activity tables areas included “sensory snow,” which actually felt cool to the touch, and we all enjoyed touching and feeling the “snow,” trying to figure out what it was made out of; a station where you made your own snowglobe in a plastic sandwhich baggie; a pipecleaner station where the kids were encouraged to use their imagination and make shapes with the pipcleaners; a fun playdough station; a station where you made a snowman our of construction paper; and more. There were even GFCF (gluten free casein free) snacks there, a popular diet that helps many ASD children!
…And then, of course, there was Sensitive Santa! He and his team of elves were awesome! Very patient with our entire family, allowing the children a few moments to get comfortable with Santa before the picture taking began. We all high-fived Santa, and told him what we wanted for Christmas, and Emma told him she wanted a live pig!!! Oh my goodness, girl!!! The first picture the look a little shocked, but I think the second one came out absolutely perfectly! And I love it! Thank you, Santa, and the Inspire Foundation for a frameable moment to remember for years to come!!!
