This week, over half term, we’ve been entertaining children in hospital and at home with a variety of Halloween-themed activities.
Every day we’ve hosted a different virtual entertainer session including ghostly art workshops, spooky storytelling, TikTok dance tutorials, festive makeup workshop and the pumpkin patch challenge.
Our 24/7 entertainment channel, Smile TV, featured a host of art & craft activities including pumpkin drawing and origami ghost making plus Mr Magic mesmerised us all with card tricks, bottle magic and some hysterical Halloween howlers.
We also delivered Halloween treat packs containing glow sticks, games, treats and the all-important pots of slime to children across all our NHS hospital partners.
“The Spread a Smile Halloween packs put smiles on so many children’s faces at the hospital. They were tailored perfectly to suit a range of ages. When the word slime was mentioned, the patients’ faces lit up.” Jamie-Lee Phillipson, Hospital Play Lead at Nottingham Children’s Hospital
