So, like you, we present each guest with an attractive visitor's pack to generate some excitement and help make these kids special special and important to us.
We bring the kids upfront and introduce them to the rest of the group. Then we ask the kids to guess their age. It's amazing how their eyes light up as the others call out varied suggestions. It also helps that our regular kids are so encouraging. "Wow! He's really tall for 7. I never would have guessed that." "Really? She's nearly as old as me.. looks like she'd be great at games. Can you run fast?" It's a lot of fun for everyone.
While the kids really enjoy the attention and gift, it takes time to create these special packs each week... and there's the costs involved of buying little items that kids will enjoy and value.
But we've discovered these brightly coloured activity boxes from Busy Nippers. Each box includes: - Colourful stickers
- Easy-peel-off sticker scene
- 8 drawing and puzzle sheets
- Collect Me Sticker
- Non-toxic crayons (4 colours each pack)
And.. it's easy to just slip in a 'Thank you for joining us this morning' card, activities information, current newsletter and information about upcoming events.
