Homemade moon sand
Homemade moon sand

Last week at Gateway, we decided to BLASToff, to take one step for man and a giant leap for man-kind to the moon!  Well, as close to the moon as we could get.  Gateway participants created their own moon-sand, using sand, corn starch and water! Although they might not have gotten to the moon in real-life, we always make sure that the kids ‘shoot for the moon, because if they miss, they still land amongst the stars’.  The kids are encouraged to always try their best, and by doing so they build the confidence and competence they need to feel successful! Way to go BLAST!

At BLAST Thorncliffe, our kids are learning about Baseball and everything that comes along with it!  Learning how to be a team player and encouraging and supporting one another is just the

beginning of all of the amazing skills these kids will take away from their physical literacy program. In playing baseball, our kids become competent in their abilities to not only play the sport, but in all that it means to be part of a team.

And that takes us to BLAST Grenoble, where participants made some delicious cake-pops! YUM!  What an amazing treat that was.  Everyone got to shine with their creativity in decorating these yummy cake pops up to the nines and then eat their marvelous creations.

Don’t forget that our Send a Kid to Camp campaign is in full swing!  Consider making a donation today to help Moorelands provide a summer filled with opportunities to members of your Moorelands Community.

Have a great week!
