Our team loved hosting a small children’s Halloween get together last week!
The children had fun participating in therapeutic activities, games, arts & crafts, and of course some trick or treating!
The kids had a great time working on their social skills enjoying the day and making friends with other children they had never met before. For many of the children, it had been their first time getting a chance to “dress up” for Halloween.
“Helping them work through winning and losing different games is really important; it’s vital for children to be able to work through that, and this is a perfect environment”
Team Member, Shannon Manns.
More than Just Fun
Our events are more than just fun; they provide an opportunity for immediate interventions for the children. When the children became frustrated, upset, or needed some strategies for a certain activity, our team of therapists was there to guide them one on one immediately.
Arts & Crafts
As always, we dedicated time to arts and crafts. Creating art breaks down barriers that often exist in face-to-face communication. While children focus on their artwork they feel free to share their feelings. Art expression is an opportunity for success and achievement, which often builds confidence and self-esteem.
Our entire team agrees that the most fulfilling part of our events is seeing the children experience new things. Keep an eye on our calendar for our next event!
