Easter camp this year was a great success. The children were smiling from start to finish. All the children were kept very busy with art & craft activities, baking, cooking, indoor games and outdoor games.
The children made Easter cards for their Mammies, Daddies, Grannies, Sisters and Brothers. They were very creative and the children were excited to deliver their cards "like the postman" when they got home.
The children made Easter Bonnets and modelled them for the day!
It’s not Easter without some sweet treats to take home and share with our family.
Easter chick nests
Oat cookies with chocolate chips
Beautifully decorated Queen Cakes
The children enjoyed playing some Easter games indoors, taking turns trying to stick the tail on to the bunny. The children wore the blindfold to see if they could do it without being able to see, although I'm not convinced that they couldn't see because they all did so well.
The children also tried to knock over the bunny with a ball. It took a few turns for the children and the adults to get a hang of it but once we did there was no stopping us!
We played a game where we used our noses to roll the eggs along the floor and see who could get their egg over the line first. The children got very competitive and practiced over and over again.
The children had lots of outdoor playtime over the two weeks because Mr. Sun decided to make an appearance. The children loved the sun and were over heard planning their holidays to the "sunny beaches".
There was lots of masterpieces created over the two weeks by the children, who took pride in bringing home their artwork each day.
The children were spoiled with a chocolate fountain that Ciara brought in for them. They dipped strawberries into the chocolate and ate them all up after their lunch. There were some messy faces!
The children created 2D shapes with leftover marshmallows.
Longfield Academy turned into a Pizzeria on the second week of camp and the children made their very own pizza's using tortilla wraps, passata and toppings of their choice.
The best part of the camp was when the Easter Bunny phoned Anne to tell her that he had left eggs for them hidden somewhere in the estate and we had to go on an adventure to find where he hid them!
At the end of the two weeks we revealed our Easter Competition winner and runner up. Smiles all 'round!
The Easter camp was such a great experience for both the children and adults involved and has left us excited for the Summer Camp which will be running in July 2019.
On 30th May 2018, we excitedly loaded up the big bus with our car seats, put on our hi-vis jackets and set off on our pre-school tour to ‘Pirate Adventure’ in Tramore. We were so excited to see what adventures awaited us and if we would find any pirate treasure. We sang lots of songs to help us pass the long journey to Tramore.
When we arrived at ‘Pirate Adventure’, the staff greeted us at the door with big smiles. They brought us inside and informed all the children about the fun activities they had planned. We split up into groups and the fun began.
We played a round of mini golf first, it was very tricky trying to hit the ball around the shells and other obstacles. One of the holes was Glow in the Dark, and we were all trying very hard to get a
HOLE IN ONE!!
Once we completed the mini golf course, we moved to the bowling alley for a game of bowling. There were a lot of strikes!!!
Next, we had races on the go-kart track and took it in turns to drive the go-karts. They were great fun and went super-fast.
After our activities, we all went to the Superhero and Princess Party Areas, where we had a lovely lunch prepared for us by the staff at ‘Pirate Adventure’ and a nice cool drink to quench our thirsts. Once we were finished and had a little rest, we were ready to continue the fun in the Pirate Ship Jungle Gym.
Soon, our lovely bus driver returned for us and we sadly said goodbye to the staff, who kindly gifted all the children with a party bag of Pirate Treasure. We sang a few songs on our return to Longfield Academy and some of us had a little nap after our busy morning of Adventures.
Our Mammies and Daddies greeted us with warm smiles and waves when we returned and were all eager to hear all our tales of the ‘Pirates Adventures’ in Tramore.
