Fun and games at Home-Start Gütersloh

Home-Start Gütersloh arranged lots of fun half-term events for the station’s children last month.

It was an opportunity for families to come together to take part in the Finding Dory Hunt, a Toy Story Day and a Halloween Party.  

Finding Dory Hunt

Sticky business: The craft sessions provided hours of fun for the childrenFor this event, children had to put their detective skills to the test.

Each child was given a bag of clues which led them to different areas on camp. If they solved the clues they found a mini picture of the loveable characters from the film, including Dory and Nemo.

Afterwards, the physical training instructors laid out an amazing obstacle course for the children to complete. 

Lynne Thompson said: “The course was so good that the children wanted to stay there all day.”

And the activities did not stop there.

At Funworld they completed a course through the ball pit and soft play area and then completed word searches and join the dots.

The children also got a chance to take part in a competition. With the mini pictures they created under the sea pictures and the artists of the two best pictures won prizes. 

It was a fantastic event enjoyed by everyone. 

Toy Story Day

Mr Potato Head and the rocket from Toy StoryFor the Toy Story day, three rooms in the centre were set out with character themes including Hamm, Buzz Lightyear and Mr Potato Head.

The day started with cake decorating. The children made their own butter frosting and added a Toy Story character to the top of the cakes. 

Later that day, the children watched the Toy Story films and tucked in to burgers.

Halloween Party

On a roll: the children had great fun transforming their mummies into Mummies using toilet paperThe Halloween Party proved to be a very spooky evening enjoyed by all.

The children were encouraged to come in fancy dress and take part in an evening of games and dancing. Even the parents got involved by wrapping toilet rolls around mummies to make ‘mummies’. 

To end the party a Scary Walk was organised by 26 RA. A zombie collected the children (and parents) which had everyone screaming – the parents louder than the children! – and led them round the cellar.

The week’s activities were a huge success, thanks to Home-Start and all those who helped to run each event.
