Elves offer childcare during the holiday rush

Vikettes ready to watch the little ones while parents shop or cook

Want a little time without the kids to do your Christmas shopping? Need to clean the house before the boss comes over for the holiday party? Does the phrase 'long winter's nap' bring a smile to your face?

Whatever your reason, The Forest Grove Vikettes 'elves' have the answer for parents in need of a few child-free hours this Saturday.

Bring your kids to the Harvey Clarke gym from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 16 and the high school dance team will spend the day entertaining them while you do what needs to be done. Cost for the club's fund-raiser is $15 per child for the day for those who pre-register, or $20 at the door. No group rates are available. Here are the specifics:

The event is for kids 3 and up (they must be potty-trained). The location is Harvey Clarke Elementary School, 2516 N. B Street, Forest Grove.

Children should be dressed in play clothes. Parents need to provide a sack lunch and any snacks the child may want throughout the day. Activities include storytelling, crafts, sports and dancing.
