Last Thursday (Aug 1st) Stacey Gagne, Intern Sandra and I packed the Cookie Car with Cookies, Hula Hoops,Ukuleles, KCB Pencils, magnets, and wristbands and headed to Aaron’s Acres Lancaster Location. Aaron’s Acres provides children and young adults with disabilities ages five through twenty-one, social and recreational programs to promote age-appropriate socialization and communication skills.
I sang 5 or 6 songs with the kids. It was awesome hearing them sing “My Mom’s a Pirate” and “42 Monkeys”. They danced and laughed and enjoyed the sound of the ukulele. Stacey and Intern Sandra played the “Face the Cookie” game and the “Hula Hoop” Game. “Face the Cookie” is the game where contestants try to get an oreo cookie from their forehead to their mouth without using their hands and without dropping it. The “Hula Hoop” game was to test who could Hula Hoop the longest. Both were big hits. The biggest hit of the day, however was the Cookie Car. Everyone wanted to sit in it and pretend they were driving. We shared cookies with everyone and passed out the KCB pencils, magnets and wristbands.
The highlight of the day for me was meeting David. David is a little 7 or 8 year old guy with Down Syndrome who was enjoying spinning his piece of yarn and uncooked pasta wheel necklace. He was covered in Oreo Cookies. I couldn’t help but notice the residue of his snack on his face and hands while I sat beside him and talked. He looked up at me with a glint in his eye, smiled and ran his cookie-crumb-filled hands through my beard. I don’t think he ever saw a beard like mine, or at least was never close enough to touch one. I spent the rest of the day getting cookie crumbs out of my beard, but I hope I never get the picture out of my mind of the smile on that little guys face. It was awesome! You can see more pics here.
Long ago, in a land flowing with beards and kilts, there lived two tribes who were locked in a very silly battle. Can MacLarry, an aspiring inventor, change the tradition between these two tribes and convince them that it’s better to get along? Find out in the all-new Veggie Tales: MacLarry and the Stinky Cheese Battle! Available this Tuesday, July 30th, on DVD!
How you can win it:
Tune in to WJTL on Friday, July 26th for chances to win it before you can buy it on Tuesday. You may want to put us on your speed dial: 717-392-3690 (392-FM90). Plus, visit the Kids Cookie Break live on location this Saturday for lots of chances to win!
Details for Saturday’s Kids Cookie Break event:
The Kid’s Cookie Break will be live this Saturday from 9AM-Noon at Lebanon Valley Brethren Home’s Chicken BBQ & Auction. (Click here for details.) Find the KCB Table in the Kid’s Area. We’ll have free wristbands, the KCB Cookie Car and your chance to win the new Veggie Tales DVD: “MacLarry & The Stinky Cheese Battle”. Plus, the Kid’s Area includes a bouncy castle, face painting, crafts and more! Activities at LVBH this Saturday also include an auction, a Car & Tractor Show and live music.
