Monday 29th October 2018

It’s getting spookier by the day here, and we haven’t a clue as to why!

Only joking, we’re counting days to our Halloween culmination this Wednesday.

In the meantime, though, we have our hands full with autumnal arts and crafts.

Today we had a long session of puppet-making with the mist incredible materials, such as jiffy bags - who’d have thought?! Jim the workshop facilitator managed to craftily squeeze some sign language in as well, so we had lots of little fingers drawing shapes in the air to show initials and signal completion or call for help. And those agile fingers created some not-so-fragile puppets in pretty oranges, ruby reds and yummy yellows.

The day, of course, was punctuated by outdoor play and meals, as well as sufficient free play for the children to chat and get acquainted - it’s school holidays after all.

Back for some more crazy cool stuff tomorrow.

With best wishes,

No Windy Wednesday nor Wellie Wednesday - it was sunny and dryagain, and we couldn’t be happier!

We started the day with some stretches and twists: ‘supple joints make sharper minds’, said no one in particular but it seemed the right thing to do.

The morning was made more fun outdoors, where the ball games and hide-and-seek were not the only games in town.

Back in the room, the children decorated their biscuits with spidery-themed designs, which were more sweet than scary in the end. And to continue with the theme, they made Halloween costumes on their own and in groups.

The afternoon’s highlight was Steve the Entertainer with his Magic Show and Glitter Tattoos. Wait till you see the wierd and wonderful tattoos on the wrists of your kids tonight!

Did we mention the pumpkin painting? No? Well, you get the idea.

With all good wishes,

The Holiday Scheme Team
