Don't fret your fears - pop em!

Our visit with Strong Women Strong Girls last week provided a chance for the girls to talk about their fears.  As we entered the Halloween season and are now closing in on that ghoulish day, spiders, ghosts and vampires become all too common a fright for kids.  Thus the girls went around the circle and each shared a time they had to overcome a fear. It was great to hear all of these experiences.

For a fun activity the girls each got a balloon and wrote down a fear they have. The next step was to pop those balloons! We stepped on, sat on, and poked our balloons and our fears!

While the girls were hanging out with the mentors, the boys were participating in a fun activity with the Carrick Library. They brought in folding papers and instructions for some fun Halloween themed crafts!

The boys had a great time creating these spooky designs and working together.

We are so lucky to have partners like Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and Strong Women Strong Girls that we can always count on to bring us a great time and really care about the kids. Thank you!
