Summer is festival time in Giraffe! We have as many fun outdoor activities as possible during the summer months to make the most of the fresh air and sunshine! ☀️☀️☀️
Each centre has its own calendar of events from Family BBQs to Sports Days to Beach parties. We encourage the children to take an active part in keeping our gardens beautiful by planting flowers, herbs and even their own fruit and vegetables. They love watching the process from seed to food they can pick and eat! We love outdoor play and painting too. Everyone enjoys being out in the fresh air and we grab the novelty of a sunny day with both hands!
Here are the highlights from summer 2015!
Parent BBQ Fun!
Grow It Yourself
We love to encourage gardening in our centres. In Giraffe Blanchardstown, the children took part in greenhouse planting and harvested a great yield of plants – strawberries, blackcurrants, courgettes, cucumbers, potatoes, tomatoes and lots of herbs! The children loved being part of the growing process, and we loved the expressions on their faces as they discovered and tried the produce they grew themselves! 🙂
In Leopardstown Toddler Safari got in on the gardening action too!
Sports Day is a wonderful opportunity to teach the children from a young age about getting active and staying healthy! Whether it’s the sack race, a ball game or an obstacle course, the children are encouraged to take part, to learn to work as a team and most of all to enjoy themselves!
Teddy Bears Picnic
Here is a selection of photos of many of the other summer activites we did this summer.
Summertime is when we bid a fond farewell to our pre-schoolers as they enter Junior Infants! We know they will all do great!
Summer is festival time in Giraffe! The children look forward to the Summer Festivals every year, and every Giraffe Centre hosts different events through the summer months. This year, we saw Teddy Bear Picnics, Jungle Days, Magic Shows & Magicians, Beach days, Family BBQs and much much more! We have as many fun outdoor activities […]
