Students participated in fun activities with their siblings or children during Kids and Sibs weekend Feb. 7 and 8.

Holly Isler, the event coordinator for Residence Housing Association, said a fair amount of people checked in Friday evening for the weekend’s activities.

“I would say every event had a decent amount of people the whole time,” Isler said. “A big hit was the cupcake decorating and the coloring.”

Activities included coloring, laser tag, bingo and a movie. Attendees were also welcome to hang out in the Student Life Center or on the courts at the Campus Recreation Center.

Alexa Aldridge, a communication junior, said Cake Club’s cupcake decorating station was fun.

“We did cupcake decorating and coloring,” Aldridge said. “We had more kids than we expected, so I’m glad the kids came to get sugared up.”

On Saturday morning, students and their families were treated to a pancake breakfast hosted by the National Residence Hall Honorary in the Marketplace.

After breakfast, the combined efforts of several RSOs were shown by the 16 events offered. SA helped with a few of the events, as well. Member Lauren Johnson said it was great to see everyone together and participating.

“The kids (looked) excited,” Johnson said.

The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum hosted an art activity from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Pine Grove hosted tie-dying, and University Village West helped students make shrinky dinks.

The weekend closed with an ice cream social hosted by Living Center Southwest.
