2018 flew by! November's Sibshop was our final of the year.
Our celebration started with stuffing some turkeys. We admit it wasn't the traditional way! Our turkeys were stuffed with candy and treats and tissue paper feathers.
Each month we spend a little time getting reacquainted with one another and reviewing our rules and expectations. Our rules include 1.) Have Fun 2.) Be Nice 3.) Be Respectful and 4.) Keep It Confidential
After a fun game of "Four Corners" our awesome volunteer Hannah led us through a bibliotherapy activity. Reading books about special needs families provides an opportunity to connect, reflect, and share our own similar experiences.
This group of Sibshoppers enjoyed playing a "Minute to Win It" cup stacking game.
In October we played a new game called "Marshmallow Battleship". We had a handful of of Sibshoppers request that we play it again this month. The marshmallows went a flying!
"Don't Eat Pete" is a silly game our Sibshoppers love! This Thanksgiving themed version is called "Don't Eat Tom."
It's a simple game where one piece of candy is placed on each square of the game board. The other players designate a square as "Tom" which is unbeknownst to the player who is "It." "It" then chooses a piece of candy and can keep on eating until he reaches for the piece of candy designated as 'Tom". When that happens, the other players yell out 'Don't Eat Tom!" and that player's turn is over.
"Zap It!" This was a request from a Sibshopper who has been with us for quite some time. This tennis ball tossing game is one we played years ago with a Valentine's Day Theme. This turkey edition was a bunch of fun! You earn points by bouncing tennis balls at the target. But, if you hit a turkey all your points are "zapped" and you end up with zero!
All of us at Sibshops of Utah County are immensely
for the opportunity to work with all our Sibshoppers! They teach us facilitators and volunteers so much about patience, kindness, compassion and selflessness. Thanks for trusting us with them!
There are no Sibshops held in December--we look forward to seeing you all in January 2019!
