Easter Excitement began at Gracehill Afterschool Club Ballymena when schools finished for two weeks holiday. The children were very excited to be off. Easter preparations were underway. Lots of painting and colouring of Easter eggs took place. Bunting made the club look great as the Easter Excitement continued.
Gracehill Afterschool Club children enjoyed making their own Easter Excitement. Bunny ears and lots of pictures were made and coloured. Easter baskets made from junk art. A good hiding place for the chocolate eggs! The children made a lovely colourful wall display. ‘ Every Child Is an Artist’ was the title.
Easter Excitement continued with a trip away. The sports hut in Ballymena was a great day out. The children and staff had a brilliant time. With the children in two groups, Nerfs Wars and games were organised. A picnic lunch was much needed after a lot of running around. A lot of tired children and staff returned to club in the afternoon.
Baking was also included in the Easter Excitement. Yummy Rolo cookies were made and taken home. They tasted delicious with the toffee and chocolate all melted inside. Some cookies didn’t make it as far as home!
