Half term and holiday activities for children

PACT is hosting some exciting sessions for adopted children during half terms and school holidays.

These sessions are for PACT adopted children (parent required to supervise) and are a great way for children to have fun, meet others who were adopted and for parents and children to learn some of the therapeutic value of the activities chosen.

Details of the different activities available are below. All sessions will take place on Zoom unless otherwise indicated, so children can join in from their safe place. Parents who attended the groups with their children before said:

“Thank you so much, we really enjoyed the craft session, it was simple and easy to follow and you made it fun, thank you"

“This was excellent today, thank you both very much"

Please note: these sessions are for  PACT families only. Places are free but booking is essential. To book onto any of the below activities, email Megan at  adoptionsupport@pactcharity.org and let her know which activities you are interested in.

Please book early so we can send you details of any required materials or ingredients for the sessions. The age ranges indicated below are based on the required skill level, but we welcome children of other ages to join in if you feel they would enjoy the activity.
