On Friday we were delighted to have Hartbeeps UK Baby and Toddler Group to join our residents for a teddy bear tea party!
Briony led the session and we were joined by 12 families, with little ones aging from 3 months to 4 years. All the residents gathered round a green grass carpet as the children sat on toadstool mats with their mums and dads and role played, baking cakes, making music, and each picked out a teddy bear of their choice.
It was a sensory experience with various sounds to identify, music, and interaction between residents and children. After the fun it was time for a pretend nap and all the children were given a blanket and night light and we turned out the lights. Relaxing lights were put on the ceiling before everybody tidied up.
Afterwards mums and residents chatted over a cup of tea and a biscuit and we can’t wait for the next visit!
