Once we arrived and thawed out a bit. We opened our 4S gifts to the center. They received: mixing bowls, a digital thermometer, pitchers, cutting boards, cookies, a Meijer gift card and a Michael's gift card. Each present was accepted with gratitude and glee. (Did I forget anything?)
Then with the clients in a circle and some of our 4S kids standing behind them, we played a game my family calls "Twas." I read aloud, "Twas the Night Before Christmas." There were two prizes, and each time "and" or "the" was read, the gifts were passed around the circle. When the poem was over, whoever had the bag handed it to their client.
Our last activity was singing Christmas songs together.
