Easter at Gracehill Afterschool Club.

What a great time we had over Easter at Gracehill Afterschool Club Ballymena. The weather was good so we were able to get outside. We went to the garden to play and have fun. A great time was had hunting around for delicious Easter eggs. We found them hidden in trees and the grass and many different places. Team games and football were the most popular activities for outside in the beautiful surroundings in Gracehill village.

Also during the Easter Holidays we had a special visit. Flossy Treats, a local business in Galgorm, joined us at Gracehill Afterschool Club Ballymena to help us make very tasty Easter eggs and chocolate pizzas. After melting the chocolate the children got to choose between milk or white chocolate. We were very lucky to be able to choose both. It was a hard decision which yummy sweets to put onto our chocolate creations!! We had the delight of eating all the leftover sweets. These definitely went down a treat. I wonder did many parents get to taste the beautiful chocolate?

During the Easter Holidays all the children had a helping hand in making lots of Easter crafts. Our beautiful display had butterflies, bumblebees, Easter eggs, flowers and a colourful rainbow. The children used paints, coloured paper and pens to make these lovely creative designs. The lovely weather got the children thinking of Spring and the colourful display reminds us of this.

Making buns and smores was also on the agenda for Easter at Gracehill Afterschool Club. The children made birds nest using shredded wheat, melted chocolate and topped off with Smarties mini eggs. An afternoon treat was making smores. We used digestive biscuits, chocolate spread and marshmallows. Everyone at Gracehill Afterschool Club agreed they were delicious!!

We are excited to be having a visit from local business Flossy Treats on Tuesday 16th April. The kids will have fun making lots of chocolate treats to take home. All our kids from club are invited to this event. We cant wait to see how the chocolate pizzas turn out and more importantly, how they taste!!!

Everyone will also be busy during the holiday period making yummy birds nest buns with shredded wheat and chocolate and topped with mini eggs. We hope there will be plenty for staff as well. We will have a hunt around to see if the Easter bunny has left any nice surprises! There will be plenty of opportunities for Easter crafts. These can be displayed in the club or taken home from the holiday club Ballymena.

If the weather is good we will be outside playing our favourite games of rounders, football, tennis, either in the playground or the garden and getting lots of fresh air at the same time. Lets hope the sun makes appearance!!
