Last Saturday we had our first SupaPlay Saturday at Toronto Avenue Playground in Manor Park. It kicked off with our “Sparkly Fun – smells like a bonfire” event. The day was enjoyed immensely by the children and even their parents too, drawing in rather a large crowd, especially for a rainy day! With the music jumping it felt like a party, but a party with a difference! In between dancing and playing on the playground equipment, kids and their families could try out the free fun activities on offer.
Everybody loved making their own personal microwave mug cake and enjoyed eating them afterwards – they even got to keep the mug! Our home made tin can rocket stoves were churning out the eggy bread whilst the kids got to toast marshmallows. Making paper lanterns was very popular especially as each one came with an LED tea light that changed colour. They looked very pretty when it got dark and lit the way to the final activity – sparklers for all the kids!
“We had a good time and the kids did too. It’s the simple things that end up being so much fun!”
This is the first of a number of SupaPlay days we will be holding throughout the year at our playground in Manor Park, just behind the Froud Centre. Our next date in the diary is Saturday 22nd November, where the children will be making kites! Click here for more info about our upcoming SupaPlay Saturdays! Or read more about our playground here.
SupaPlay Saturdays have been made possible with generous funding from BBC Children in Need.
