Busy Bees chose Child Bereavement UK as the company’s Charity of the Year for 2018 up until 2020, and to launch this, we hosted an Elephant’s Tea Party. The Elephant is used by CBUK to work with children to help introduce the ideas of memory, life cycles and grieving - as an Elephant never forgets!
The children enjoyed a whole host of elephant-themed crafts throughout the day; our Under 2's were treated to a giant Dumbo picture (courtesy of Becky who showed off her artistic flair) to colour and the children really enjoyed an interactive singing time using puppets.
Our toddler children got messy making their very own elephant ears to wear at their tea party! With glue and plenty of interesting odds and ends to decorate them with, they looked fab when they had finished.
The Elephant’s tea party was a fun opportunity for the children to learn about some of the work CBUK does and have a trunkful of fun at the same time!
