Santa's Workshop

On December 4th, 2010 Erie County Developmental Disabilities put on Santa's Workshop at their location at 4405 Galloway Rd. in Sandusky. Children had a chance to meet and be photographed with Santa. Free pictures were taken and printed for the children and they had the opportunity to make them into cards and decorate them to their liking. In addition to meeting Santa, Erie County Developmental Disabilities provided a host of other activities for children and adults alike; from cookie decorating to raffles. Children were able to participate in an abundance of craft making activities and were assisted by ECDD staff and volunteers as well as student volunteers from both Sandusky and Perkins High Schools.

Crafting activities included: decorating candle votives with tissue paper to produce a beautiful stained glass effect, decorating picture frames, making ornaments including a jingle bell reindeer, filling gift jars with the ingredients to bake chocolate chip cookies for Santa, decorating gift bags, and many other projects.

Lowes donated aprons and wood kits so that kids could build various wooden toys with the assistance of the student volunteers from PHS and SHS who bravely assisted the hammer wielding children.

ECDD also had a poinsettia sale and raffle for the adults, and made their annual plan available for review and feedback, as well as an open house. The board used this event to obtain public feedback on board services and support and take comments and suggestions.

Free cookies and juice were provided for everyone in attendance and additional refreshments were also available for purchase.

All in all, it was an extremely fun, family oriented event, that provided children with hours of entertainment and not only did it earn Sandusky Spotlight's Seal of Approval, it received my daughter's seal of approval as well!
