The Festival of You – a mini therapeutic festival for our Siblings
It’s that time of year again where we would like to borrow the siblings (5+ years) of the children cared for by Shooting Star Children’s Hospices.
The Festival of you is all about spending the day with other siblings learning how to master the art of tie dye, finding a moment of calm and learning how to journal with our Art Therapist and, then having a mini rave in the hydro pool… and that’s just a taster of what’s in store! Flares, tie dye clothes, silly hats and wacky outfits are very welcome if you fancy it!
Our Siblings’ Days help children find comfort in being with other siblings. Activities are supported by our therapists to ensure we can give siblings the support they need.
Please bring swimmers, a towel, a water bottle and a packed lunch/last night’s dinner in a Tupperware.(NO NUTS PLEASE). Candy floss and other more sensible snacks will be provided to make sure they are rewarded for their hard work.
If anyone at home has tested positive for Covid we ask that you test your child (of all ages) before they come. We try to encourage children to be independent and say goodbye in reception. Please let us know if you think your child might struggle and we can make sure a friendly face is there to greet them.
