Mission Youth Outreach Virtual Event - Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota

Mission Youth Outreach Virtual Event

Military youth are invited to participate in Boys & Girls Club’s virtual arts program!

When: Thursday, October 20th, 11 – 11:45 a.m. CST (during MEA – no school!)

Who: K – 5th graders

What: People are a lot like cookies . . . Art Project with Ms. Alison on Zoom!


Create an 11×17 cookie on card stock complete with feelings sprinkles!

Kits will be mailed upon registration and will include:

  • 11×17 cardstock with I Am A Cookie Called . . .
  • 11×17 card stock with feelings sprinkles to cut out
  • A box of colored pencils
  • Glue stick
  • Please have scissors ready for your child to use during the Zoom session


As we color, cut, & glue, Ms. Alison will be leading a conversation about how much “People are a lot like Cookies”.

All the sprinkles have feeling words printed on them. We will be talking about all our emotions, about how some emotions feel really good and others are more challenging, but they are all valid, normal, & important.

We will also talk about the need to recognize challenging feelings, to sit with them a bit and think about what caused them, and how we can move on from those emotions and focus our thoughts on the emotions that make us feel good.

This will be a fun, expressive, art experience for your children and they will have a fun piece of art and a piece of art that can help them identify feelings and learn how to focus on what things make them feel happy, calm and safe.

Registration for the event is open through September 23rd. We will mail a supply kit upon receipt of your registration. Expect your supply kit about a week before the event. A zoom link for the session will be emailed out to participations within a week before the event. We look forward to creating art with your child!
