Spooktacular Sunday at Abt

Monday, October 11th, 2010

This past Sunday, our monthly Kids Day got a bit spooky.  Decorations were scattered around our atrium, and kids were able to craft their own Halloween bracelets, trick or treat bags, pumpkin picture frames and get their faces painted with designs of ghosts, goblins and more.  For the first time ever kids were able to jump on a custom hay-ride where Farmer Brown took them around our entire atrium.

If you weren’t able to make it out this weekend, don’t worry.  The Kids Day event is held once a month and there are some exciting plans in the works.  Customer Service Manager Cari Boyk gave me a sneak peek at what lies in the future, “The kids really liked the hay ride.  I’m thinking if Santa lets us, we’ll be able to borrow his sled next time,” she said.  Either way, you can be sure there will be festive treats in the upcoming Kids Days of 2010.

Da Bears!

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Kids Day 2009Kids having fun at last year’s Kids Day Chicago Bears theme.

On Sunday, September 19th, da Bears will be playing the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium at 12 noon.  That’s the same day that we are hosting another Kids Day from 11:30am to 3pm with a Bears theme.  Kids (young and old at heart) can participate in making helmets, pennants, and fingers.  Also available are football bracelets, water bottles and squishy footballs to take home.  For those that want to burn off some energy, we will have games, football ring toss, football toss and bags.  And it wouldn’t be a complete football theme without food, so Sweet Baby Rays will be on hand for a tailgating party with free Pulled Pork sandwiches and chips.  So if you’re not cheering on da Bears in the comfort of your own home, stop by Abt for Kids Day and catch the game on one of our large screen TVs, while sitting in a massage chair.

Superbowl Fun At Abt

Friday, February 5th, 2010

Looking for a family-friendly Superbowl tailgate party? Come on down to Abt on Sunday for some football fun! We will be having a “throwback” Superbowl party, so dress like you did when the Bears won the Superbowl, 24 years ago. The Atrium will be filled with food, games, and crafts. Featured activities include:

– Making a helmet to support your favorite team in Miami
– Making a “paper” finger to hold up when you cheer on your team
– Having your photo taken in front of a Soldier Field backdrop
– Enjoying tailgate foods with other football fans

These activities begin at 12pm and end at 4pm, which leaves you plenty of time to get home for the big game. Bring you family and friends and we will see you on Superbowl Sunday!

Kids Ruled the Day at Abt

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Sunday, August 23, 2009 Abt Electronics hosted our 6th Kids Day, and what a success it was! The turn out was amazing. We scheduled the event from 12-4 with crafts and goodies planned for all who attended. According to Cari Boyk, the Customer Service Manager the event drew over 160 kids from all over the area. She said we ran out of goodie bags by 3:30. For the next event we can only plan to have more on hand! Kids enjoyed drawing, crafting, and snacking with employees from the Glenview library and Abt.

Event participants even got the chance to enjoy some of our kid-sized leather recliners when they wanted to sit back and enjoy some of the books on hand. If you missed Kids Day this time… Don’t worry, there’s always next year. It will be better than ever!

Kids Take Over at Abt!

Friday, August 21st, 2009

Once again, it’s time for kids to rule the day at Abt Electonics. Sunday, August 23, 2009 from 12-4 pm is Abt’s 6th Kid’s Day event, and we know it will be more fun than ever!

Back to School is the theme for this Kids Day event. The Glenview Library will be on site to register kids, from the Glenview area, for library cards. There will be library information on-hand for non-Glenview residents as well. There will be a reading corner and kids will be able to participate in a fun craft project too. Kids will get cool school supplies to get them geared up for school for the start of school.

Along with school supplies and a fun craft project, there will be treats too. In our world famous “cookie” kitchen we will not only have yummy chocolate chip cookies, but we will have healthy lunch box snacks too! Sunday, be sure to stop by for some bugs on a log, sticks and stones, and some schools of fish.

Abt loves to kids of all ages, Sunday, August 23 make sure you stop by for all the back to school fun that you can handle! -Kelly B.

A Review Of July's Kids Day At Abt

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Kids day was a great success! Thanks to all who came out and participated. Many enjoyed ice cream cones and Hot Dogs while others made Sports Bracelets to represent their favorite team.  We also had a surprise visit from 2009 Miss Northern Illinois, Season Winesburg. She appeared in the atrium signing autographs and talking to all giving advice on how you to can compete in a pagent.  Hope you all got a Hole-In-One on our miniature golf course!  See some images below or view them on our flickr account.  Can’t wait to see you next month for “Back to School” activities!! -Megan B.
