On a bright, sunshiny day, our supported children and their siblings (and quite a few of the staff) had the chance to meet some new little friends. Far from a bleating visit, two lambs, who are brother and sister hoofed it over to Christopher’s to join in the fun at an Easter themed activity day.
There were smiles all round as children had a chance to say hello to the pair, give them a friendly stroke and even a cuddle.
Given the warm sunshine there was a lots of fun to be had playing in the garden on the trampoline and swings as well as an Easter themed trail to find spring animals and flowers.
The fun didn’t end there with sheep themed arts and crafts, sheep cupcake making complete with mini marshmallow ‘wool’ and a gardening table to grow your own board beans!Head of Care at Christopher’s Anne Bridgman said, “A wonderful time was had by all at the Easter activity day. It was so lovely to see the children’s faces light up when meeting and petting our springtime visitors. Both the lambs and the children clearly loved having a cuddle in the sunshine. We love being able to hold days like these to allow families a chance to spend special time together and make precious memories and I’d like to thank all involved for making it happen.”
