“Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble” …. “Alohomora” ….”Open Sesame” …. “Expecto Patronum.”
I think we can say that there has simply been too much myth and magic over the last three weeks, my head is full of creatures, symbols, legends and glitter- so much glitter. We have managed to weave Egyptian and Greek myth and legend into our daily fun through baking, art, craft, stories, games, puzzles and more. We have explored more magic in the form of the King Arthur legends, mythical creatures and ending of course with Harry Potter. We have box crafted, nature crafted, pom pommed and coloured. We’ve created fire and shelter, hieroglyphs and pyramids, impromptu plays, cubbies, a castle and mini gardens.
Fun was had with old friends and new connections were made, at times it felt like an all in play date. The weather has been superb and allowed for heaps of outdoor play.
I have learnt that glitter gets locked away in a box within a box, in the darkest depths of the cupboard. I have learnt that vegan biscuits are quite tasty and that digestives make the best smores. I learnt that you can buy vegetarian marshmallows but they are near impossible to find. I have learnt never to program potion making on the last day of Vacation Care and that King Arthur and Merlin stories can be adapted for children of any age.
We welcomed Charlie Evans as a brilliant new addition to the staff team and were thrilled to have Sammi come in and do some shifts for us; it was lovely having her back under the Vac Care umbrella. We farewelled Jen from the team and wish her every happiness moving forward with her career.
Please check in with me regarding your bookings and let me know if any details need to be changed. I am currently reviewing enrolment details and information and trying to update and collate; I will email families as required. A reminder, we are back to a paid service.
I’ll finish with a little spell of my own.........
