Under the sea at the hospice

Children staying at Very Special Kids Hospice were submerged in fun under the sea activities during the recent school holidays.

A visit from Roaming Reptiles saw the kids get up close and personal with some aquatic reptilian friends including frogs, turtles and crocodiles and the children embarked on a journey to the Melbourne Aquarium to see the incredible sea-life living there.

Art therapy took on a nautical theme, with hand-prints and footprints transformed into sea creature canvases and sand and shell jars created. A fitting gift for mum and dad at home.

The children also got creative in the kitchen making crab cookies and a jellyfish tank with blue jelly and fish lollies.

The Under the Sea school holiday program was made possible through the generous support of volunteers, The Art Cabriolet, Roaming ReptilesSEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium and Coach Buses.
