BUBBLE ART!
From http://www.
alwaysmadewithlove.co.nz/super-funeasy-diy-bubble-art
What you will need for your DIY
Bubble Art project:
•Thick paper or card stock
•Acrylic Paint of your choice
•A few plastic straws
•Bubble Mix
•Containers (to mix paint and
bubbles)
•Scissors
•Glue
First thing, mix the bubble mix
with my desired… about 5
tablespoon of bubble mix per
colour. Don’t be too light handed
because if you don’t add enough
paint your bubbles will turn out
far too light and you won’t be
able to see them too well. (about
half a teaspoon plus of paint to 5
tablespoons of bubble mix)
Start slowly blowing individual
bubbles with your straw. Make
sure they form nice and big
and then place the bubble on
4
to the page. The bubbles either
instantly popped or they sat on
the page for a little bit before
popping. If you have a few
stubborn bubbles then you can
pop them yourself. The pop of
the bubble is very cool as it send
paint flying in all directions and
each bubble is left with its own
unique look.
Once you have finished making
all the colour combinations you
want then leave them to dry.
If you’re doing this DIY with
children, have them in their
underwear or have a paint
gown on because it does get
messy and there is lots of splatter
in the end. Outside would
probably be more ideal!

DOUBLE YOUR STEP UP
DONATION!
Many employers sponsor matching
gift programs to support their
employees' charitable giving.
This is a great way to double
the impact of your support of the
Down Syndrome Association of
Central California. Please contact
your employer or your Human
Resources department to find out
if they have such a program. Most
companies match dollar for dollar,
and some will even double or
triple match donors' gifts!
With such programs, the process
is usually as easy as requesting
a matching gift form from your
employer. Please send the
completed and signed form in with
your next gift to DSACC and we
will do the rest.
Thank you for your support!
DON'T FORGET...
PossABILITIES!
We would love for all of our
loved ones with Ds to put together
a collage, art piece or display
board featuring their favorite
activities, accomplishments and
loves to be showcased in the
PossABILITIES tent at Step Up!
Create them at home and bring
them with you the day of the event
(Oct 24).
If you need help creating or
coming up with ideas, contact
DSACC staff for help at
559.228.0411 or [email protected]

Introducing our Inaugural
Step Up Ambassador, Jaleena Rayas!
Photo: Sweet Nectar Society
Let's met the Rayas family: Augustine Rayas
(Dad), Jennifer Rayas (mom), Jaleena Rayas (9yr.),
Isabella Rayas (6yr.), Rayden Rayas (4yr.) and
Gabriella Rayas (3yr.)
Jennifer, tell us a little about your family...
Our family consist of three girls, one boy, Mom,
Dad, and Grandma (Cathy). We enjoy going to the
beach, visiting amusement parks, playing sports, and
being involved in school events. We love to sing and
dance and the occasional impromptu fashion show.
We really enjoy spending time together as family and
being able to explore new things.
Who do you walk for? We walk for Jaleena, but
ultimately we walk for awareness, acceptance, and
equality for all individuals with Down syndrome.
When and how did you get first get involved with
Step Up? We have been involved with Buddy Walk/
Step Up for about 10 years. We became involved
when our daughter Jaleena was about a month old.
We were told about Buddy Walk/Step Up through
Jaleena's early intervention teacher.
Why do you have so much Step Up pride?
We have so much Step Up pride because we are so
proud of how amazing Jaleena is and want to share
her awesomeness with everyone. We are proud of
what she has accomplished and want to celebrate
her achievements with everyone. We want to show
people that we ALL have the ability to do amazing
things.
What are your goals and hopes for your
9
child's future? Our goals and hopes for the
future for Jaleena are for her to be independent and
confident in herself. We want Jaleena to pursue her
dreams and passions just like everyone else. We
hope she will inspire others to be their best and to
never give up . We want her to strive to be the best
"Jaleena" she can be and to just be happy!
How DSACC has helped/impacted your life?
DSACC has helped us in so many ways. When we
first found out Jaleena had Down syndrome, we felt
scared and alone. DSACC gave us the information
and tools we needed to be the best parents we
could be for Jaleena. DSACC has also given us the
opportunity to meet and network with other families
that share similar stories. We feel comfort in knowing
we are not alone in this journey.
Jaleena, what is your favorite color? Orange
Favorite food? Pizza!
Favorite activity/hobby? To sing, dance and
read her bibles.
Favorite thing about yourself? My hair! (Mom
says she is constantly playing with it)
What do you want to be when you grow
up? A singer/actress in Hollywood. "I'm going to be
famous!"
We know you will be famous Jaleena! and we look
forward to seeing your spirit at Step Up in October!
Photo: Jason Mendez- Snapshot Media, 2014
Team Jaleena is the reigning "Step Up Most
Spirit" winner and has been the "most spirited"
for the past 4 consecutive years!
To nominate yourself or a loved one with Ds as the 2016
Step Up Ambassador, please send us your story answering the above questions and a brief explanation of why
