Around the World Christmas Party

We celebrated the holiday season with an “Around the World Christmas Party”. Each family creatively provided a virtual background and dressed to represent the foreign country of their choosing. Each family introduced the culture they represented as well as described how that culture celebrated Christmas. We enjoyed treats from around the globe and shared our own family’s traditions.

Group 1 participated in the Jack and Jill Medical Academy- mini edition and virtually put together a life size skeleton. Each child received their own stethoscopes and learned how to listen to their parent’s heartbeat and breath sounds. Finally, the children used bandages to wrap the wrists and ankles of their parents.

Carole Robertson/ Jack and Jill Day

Carole Robertson/Jack and Jill day was a combined day of service, celebration, and commemoration. Together our families cleaned the Awanis Fish Creek park which was previously adopted by the Anchorage chapter and is situated within a minority community. Following the park cleaning, our kids from all age groups gave a presentation on the history of Carole Robertson and Jack and Jill.
