Family Events

Scarecrow Building Contest

Held every October during East Hartford's Fall Fest. ChildPlan provides all building materials and supplies for families to create their very own scarecrow and enter into the contest. Our esteemed judge will award prizes to the top three contestants. The winner goes home with the scarecrow trophy! For a unique edge families are encouraged to bring in their own decorations/clothing, costumes make a great scarecrow! Registration is not necessary, first come first serve. See you all next October!

Annual Holiday Parties

Each Holiday season for the past 10 years ChildPlan in collaboration with South Congregational church, Youth Services, and the East Hartford Exchange Club, has put on holiday parties for the families at the East Hartford Housing Authority complexes. Each Child and parent receive an individual gift while enjoying the holiday party atmosphere complete with dinner, crafts and prizes.

Pre-School and Kindergarten Fair

For the past two yearsChildPlan and the Early Childhood Discovery Committee put on a Pre-K and kindergarten fair. The fair aims to bring families with young children and local services/resources together. Every year there is a special show, bounce house, face painting and lots of fun! Also in attendance is East Hartford Public Schools registrars office, available to families registering children entering Kindergarten.

Every year ChildPlan tries to expand and put together new events that bring families in touch with local resources and out for a day of fun.
