Wells Fargo generously granted $5,000 to The Wylie Center to support the Outreach Program which provides counseling services to children in Alvord Unified School District. From everyone at The Wylie Center, Thank you!
Parent Day Off
This event is for Dad's, Mom's or non-paid care providers who provide care for their child served by Inland Regional Center. Try to get a sitter so that both parents can come. The purpose is to appreciate the parents for all that they do and show ways to take care of themselves so that they can be more effective caretakers for their children. Space is limited to one hundred and fifty parents to gather together and learn new ways to relax, meet new friends, find a new hobby, be pampered, shop for the holiday, play games, get creative in the crafty corner, and enjoy workshops.

Dear Wylie Center Families and Friends,
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and we know many of you are busy this holiday season so we are going to keep this newsletter to the point with lots of fun things for you to do with your little one this month. 


Holiday Craft
Make a 'Hand'some Reindeer

What You Need:

Brown construction paper (you can use craft foam or felt too)

Tan construction paper (you can use craft foam or felt too)

White paper or wiggle eyes

Black or red construction paper or a black or red pom-pom

Glue or tape

Crayon or marker

What to Do:

1. Trace two hands on the tan construction paper. Trace one foot (with a shoe on) on the brown construction paper.

2. Cut out the shapes, and arrange as illustrated - with the two hand shapes making the antlers on the deer, glue or tape into place.

3. Turn the project over to the back and write the child's name and date.

4. Draw and cut out eyes and a nose (or use wiggle eyes, and a pom-pom for the nose).

5. Glue on the eyes and nose.

For painting, I recommend that you make the foot pattern from craft foam, then put the paint on it, and stamp it onto the shirt. For the antlers, you could put paint directly on the child's hands or (especially with a very young child) make patterns like for the foot/face from craft foam and use it to stamp the hand antlers on. You might want to reverse the color choices, and make the face lighter brown and the antlers dark.
