The second of our summer activities events took place on Tuesday 9th August at Bristol Zoo Gardens. We met at the entrance at 10:30 a.m. 19 carers, 4 staff members and a whopping 36 children between the ages of 2 and 18 years joined in the fun!
It was a beautiful sunny day which enabled carers and children to explore the Zoo at their own pace and leisure. There were lots of different animals to see including the monkeys, lions, penguins, sea lions, butterflies and many more. Also around the Zoo were different interactive activities for children and adults to join in with and if you were lucky you could see some of the animals being fed. There was also a creative flare to be felt with a number of different sculptures and art work around for people to enjoy. Children could also be creative themselves making face masks in the activity centre. There was lots to do to keep busy!
We re-grouped on the lawn in the gardens at 1 o’clock for a picnic lunch. After which, carers and children were able to continue exploring the Zoo. A wonderful day was had by all!
Thanks to all who came!
