SOME OTHER STORIES...
Balloon Day, November 2013
at Kidsfirst Wigram
November the 4th may well be remembered as the most colourful day of 2013.
To celebrate the Kidsfirst Centenary, a box with a pump, string and 100 balloons was delivered to each Kidsfirst Kindergarten in Canterbury and on the West Coast. It seemed that wherever you went, there was an explosion of happy colour, with everyone aware of the important celebration that was 100 Days of Kidsfirst.
At Kidsfirst Wigram the fun didn't stop there. Everybody helped to create a special history wall, there were old toys and activities from the past (like bubble blowing, tiddly-winks and making necklaces out of dried macaroni)... and lots more.
Here are just some of the photos...
