Family Week Wednesday the 29th of June 2022
They were so lucky to have Abi, who has been a part of the Boombalee Kidz community for many years now, join in on the activities. Abi is one of Boombalee’s very talented parents who came in to do a drawing class with the children. She brought in some of her own illustrations and flowers for the children to re-create.
The children enjoyed creating their own interpretation of the drawings and Mya loved having her mum in for the afternoon!
Abi creates wonderful pieces from her online store, check it out via Instagram; https://www.instagram.com/mytinyexplorer_/
The children loved expressing their creativity with nature.
Why Family Week Is So Important To Us?
National Families Week is a time to celebrate with your family, make contact with your extended family and friends, and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community. It is a time to celebrate the meaning of family and to make the most of family life.
Let’s take the time to reflect on the critical role that families play in teaching, supporting and nurturing children especially as they grow.
“Families are the most important building block of communities, societies and nations. I believe strongly that we need to think more about the value of families and do more to support our and others’ families, whatever form they take. What does your family mean to you? What do you give to and get from your family? At times family life can undoubtedly be challenging, but families are the best places to share and to be understood. National Families Week is a great opportunity to pause and take stock of how we can all work for greater family wellbeing.”
