Connecting Parents got spooky for Halloween and was super busy with pumpkin carving, fancy dress and face painting! We also celebrated Aymans 2nd birthday with lots of balloons and, of course, a cake. The ghoulish gathering was happy to welcome new mothers and grandmothers to the group, too.
At Playscheme the theme was a mix of Celebrating Black History Month and Halloween. Activities included making pumpkin lanterns, Frankenstein tins, African dance, cooking apple crumble, carrot cake, and Caribbean fish cakes. It was an exciting week filled with lots of arts, crafts, gym games, sports and a visit from Razamataz Theatre Company with lots of fun drama games. We also visited Kidtropolis at the Excel Centre, Quazar and the cinema to see ‘The Storks’.
We held a meeting with the children on Friday to hear what they thought of the week and one child summed it up with this- "I've had the best time, playing, making things, being with my friends and the Kidtropolis trip was amazing!'
We finished the week with a ‘Halloween Fun’ afternoon, featuring a scavenger hunt, face painting, tattoos, dangling doughnuts, apple bobbing, gooey dip and a Halloween piñata!
