Kids Club

Welcome to The Jersey Momma Kids Club Page! Here you will find links and tutorials for all of the projects that I've led in Chick-fil-A Kids Club. Even if you've never joined us for Kids Club, I'm sure you can enjoy our projects and fun lessons, since they are great for the classroom (or homeschooling, too).

I was a member of the Chick-fil-A Moms Panel in 2016-2017, as well as 2017-2018. The program has disbanded, but we still run the Kids Program on our own!


If you are in the area, Kids Club is a free program run by Chick-fil-A Flemington, and it's typically held the second Tuesday of every month (you can check their Facebook page to be sure). We learn a new Core Value Word each month, and it's perfect for kids ages pre-K and up!

2017-2018 Kids Club Meetings 

OCTOBER: CREATIVITY- We painted rocks to hide around town. If our rocks were found and brought back to Chick-fil-A, the finders would get a special gift!

Materials used: Sharpie Paint Markers, Posco Paint Pens
Helpful Items: Hide and Seek Rock Painting Kit

 

NOVEMBER: GRATITUDE - We created Gratitude Bags to give to someone we love. We filled the bags with special symbolic items, and each one had meaning to show gratitude. You can find the print-outs for our Gratitude Bags through this link from Teachers Pay Teachers.

 

DECEMBER: GENEROSITY - We read a fun book called The Gingerbread Man Loose at Christmas by Laura Murray, which was all about giving to others during the holidays. Then we made our own 'stuffed' gingerbread men out of paper!

 

JANUARY: COURTESY- We made our own paper plate cow masks ('courteous cows') using printables from Six Clever Sisters (click here for their tutorial and free cow mask printables).


FEBRUARY: KINDNESS -We read a special story about kindness called PlantPet by Elise Primavera, then we played a fun game of Valentine Bingo.

Helpful Items: Valentine's Day Bingo Game

 

MARCH: COURAGE- We read an excellent story about overcoming worries called Jonathan James and the What If Monster by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt. Then we made paper plate rainbows to remember "there's always a rainbow after the rain!" You can find a complete tutorial of my paper plate rainbows right here on the blog.

 

APRIL: COOPERATION - This was a very special Kids Club, since we got to meet members of the Seeing Eye Dog club! Miss Sandy talked to us about what it's like to raise a seeing eye puppy, and then we got to meet the seeing eye puppies ourselves! We also read a wonderful book about cooperating with a seeing eye dog called, Looking Out for Sarah by Glenna Lang.

 

MAY: DETERMINATION - More special guests came to see us this month! Sensei Ed from Westling's Martial Arts Academy in Flemington came to talk to us about Determination. He brought his brown and black belt students along, and they taught us some basic martial arts moves, too!

 

JUNE:  Kids Club Finale - We had a BIG party to celebrate our last Kids Club of the year! We each earned certificates and t-shirts, since we were now official Core Value Ambassadors! The Flemington Police Department was on-hand to present us with our certificates, and we finished off the morning with a Chick-fil-A catered buffet breakfast! Yummy! Then we made colorful sand art bottles to keep as reminders of all the fun we had this year.  You can read my tutorial here about how to make your own sand art (with salt!), and check my links below for the supplies we used.

Helpful Items: sand art bottles, art sand, mini funnels
