Easter Fun at Giraffe
Friday, April 8th, 2016
We had a great time celebrating Easter in Giraffe. The centres did fabulous artwork to decorate their centres for Easter, they made wonderful Easter bonnets for an inter-centre competition, the children had Easter egg hunts and a special visitor turned up to make their hunt even more egg-citing!
Easter Arts and Crafts
In Park West the children created plenty of Easter crafts including painting eggs and making Easter bonnets!
In Northern Cross the children created these Easter chicks!
Easter Bonnet Competition
The staff and children in each of our centres created beautiful Easter bonnets for a competition. There was great friendly rivalry between the centres and everybody worked very hard on their entry!
All the centres showed their creative side with these gems:
Our parents and Facebook audience voted for their favourite. The winning centre was Liffey Valley and they have won a staff night out! Here are the winning bonnets modeled by Sadhbh and Tom!
Easter Egg Hunt
The boys and girls in Liffey Valley had an Easter egg hunt! They were delighted to search high and low for the eggs and collected them in little baskets!
