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.
