We had our full facility on display for families and kids to enjoy a wide range of activities. Each activity was set up to encourage various aspects of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and of course, active fun!
Our Front desk all set up with a selection of game prizes!
One brave climber- did someone tell them about our color scheme??
Families getting warmed up for action....
Ready, Set, Hang On!
Our newest piece of therapy equipment is full of fun activities for kids to work on their balance and strength! It was the favorite for many kids!
Which Activity to choose?
With station set up everywhere in the clinic, kids could explore and try a wide variety of activities, from family yoga, to clay creations and various physical games.
Getting ready to go!
Hey- Why is that button off centre?!
The kids could figure it out right away!! Can you?
The imagination and creativity that kids showed was outstanding! Not to mention the concentration, and fine motor skills the exhibited :-)
What's in that box?
Every colour of clay under the sun! The sky was the limit for the imaginations of our creative kids!
Did you see what I made?
Fantastic Job! Kids were able to take home and bake their creations to harden as a permanent figurine.
What finger control to make and place all those details!
Fantastic imagination and creation !
Did someone say skill testing questions?
The response to our 'learning room' was FANTASTIC! I think everyone went away with some fun facts about their bodies...
Lindy had everyone moving and stretching in her fun family classes!
How many points for a basket?
Our zip line was another favorite for many!
Some like to glide and others like to run!
...and some had fun just jumping on the big mats! Any which way, we had everyone moving and having fun at our Family Open House!
and how may points for the yellow square?
And then the art begins...
Welcome 4Cats Art Studio, who came in to host children's art classes on site!
From Start to Finish
The kids designed and painted large scale original pieces that will become permanent works of art in our children's space!
Children conveying active play throught art
The kids produced amazingly vibrant and colourful art that will serve to inspire children's movement right from our walls, once they are stretched and framed!
Blue and green makes....
purple! Who knew?!
Painting #1 Completed!
And painting #2 begins...
...by tracing one very eager young subject! Good thing we were working with big canvasses :-)!
To paint or to play...
The options were wonderful! The kids were so engaged in all the activities, including cheering on their friends from afar!
Hmmm, what colour next?
And then there were 2!
We look so forward to seeing the children's artwork stretched and hung in our clinic entrance!
And then it was back to the zip line...
A fun test of strength and coordination.
There were many ways to try it. Which ones could you do?
A master "Open House-er"
There isn't one open space left on that game card! Well Done!!
Is that yet another totally filled card?!
The kids energy for completing every possible station was so fun to facilitate and watch. Everyone was very proud to leave with their completed cards! :-)
