Once Upon A Time the Very Special Kids Hospice was transformed into a Fairy-tale

Recently from the start of April we had our School Holiday Program, themed Once Upon A Time. Thanks to Svetlana from The Art Cabriolet as well as our incredible hospice staff, it truly was a magical time.

Over the two weeks the Hospice was transformed, into a fairy-tale like wonderland. The kids staying at the time, were taken into a world of creativity and imagination. There was no time for boredom, as each day was filled with exciting activities, epic adventures and a whole lot of laughter.

Drama Toolbox came along and entertained the children with a dynamic fairy-tale fiasco and a miniature pony that was super talented (and cute!). They also went on a treasure quest with pirates in a 4D storytelling setting, and joined mad hatter for an epic tea party.

As always they were able to participate in Dancing on the Art with a large group all making their mark, and they even created some unusual art, with bubbles and shaving cream.

The kids then got to head out on a scavenger hunt that ended with some storytelling at Malvern library. Along the way they met local business owners and collected some treats to bring back to the hospice.

When it got too much there was the magical wizard reading room where they could sit and relax by the fireplace… lit by fairy lights of course.

Thank you again to Svetlana for making the School Holiday Program an amazing interactive and creative experience.

Operated four times each year by Very Special Kids Hospice, the School Holiday Program ensures that children with life-threatening conditions have access to activities and outings in a safe and controlled environment.
