KCTV: Rock It! Helps Bring Families Together
KCTV came to the event to see what Rock It! was all about. Hear from families who attended the event on what they learned from the experts and can incorporate into their daily lives.
The goal of Rock It! was to help Kansas City build stronger families. There was fun hands-on activities for all ages, toddlers to teens, and had great strategies for parents. There was resources for families focusing on a variety of topics including nutrition, health and wellness, body awareness, bullying, suicide prevention, literacy, home safety, etc.
Elmo, Rosita, and Nina came all the way from Sesame Street to put on shows for their new friends. Families even had the opportunity to get their picture taken with a special Sesame Street guest, Abby! In addition, local native Michael Steven, star of YouTube’s incredibly popular VSauce put on shows that and interacted with kids about the wonders of science.
Saint Luke's Crittenton Children's Center has been helping the families in our community and surrounding areas overcome difficult times and traumatic events for over 120 years, and is proud to partner with Sesame Street in Communities to help build stronger families right here in KC.
