Past Events

Saturday Event With Foster Source

January 2024

We had two amazing events in Windsor and in Denver serving close to 35 children and more than 25 adults. These events are a part of our Ambassador's Program in partnership with Foster Source. They bring kids and families together to have fun, get to know each other and have an opportunity to share the challenges of foster parenting.

Foster Source provided breakfast and training to help foster, adoptive, and kinship parents learn and understand more about parenting traumatized children. This was also an important time for foster families to share and receive support in this difficult job.

Cobbled Streets’ staff and generous volunteers entertained the children. A magician inspired laughter and joy while the kids were trying to figure out the magic. A creative balloon artist made animals, crowns, and whatever a child requested. The kids loved it so much they even named their new balloon “pets” and were showing them off to the other kids and their parents. The airbrushed tattoos and face painting are always a hit.

But as much fun as the activities are, one of the most important things of the day is the joy and camaraderie of being with other kids who share similar experiences as foster kids. There is nothing like “having a buddy” for just a few hours.

That’s a special day.

Saturday Event With Foster Source

November 2023

We had a lovely event on November 18th as a part of our Ambassadors Program in partnership with Foster Source. This event was in Windsor, and we had a good turnout of families who attended. Foster Source worked with parents and provided breakfast and free training to help foster, adoptive, and kinship parents navigate caring for the kids in foster care while caring for themselves. Additional education is really important to help the entire family learn and understand one another. Cobbled Streets had fun, entertaining events set up for the kids. We had a magician come in and he did a fantastic job. The kids loved him - they were laughing, having fun with one another, and were amazed by the magic! After that we had a balloon artist come and make the kids creative balloon animals, crowns, and more! The kids loved it - they all named their new balloon pets and were showing them off to everyone. We also had holiday arts and crafts available while they waited their turn for their balloons! It is a really nice opportunity for these kids to have some care-free fun and bond with other kids who they have something in common with.

Saturday Event With Foster Source

April 2023

More than 25 families attended the Cobbled Streets Ambassador Event on Saturday, February 11. As the adults learned about the Ambassador Project and attended a training which explored the traumatized brain, the kids were involved in playing and learning. The Denver Children’s Museum provided an exciting activity about kinetic energy and teamwork. Volunteers helped build tracks, ramps, and structures with the kids in teams and soon the room was filled with laughter, shouts of excitement, and applause! Crafty Chassis joined and provided even more creative happiness. The kids made colorful window hangings and displayed them with great pride. There were door prizes for 5 lucky families and the Cottonwood Institute promoted our upcoming summer camp. It was a morning filled with fun, exploration, and joy for everyone!
