Children’s Day – Whangarei

For the past five years, the VOYCE Whangārei team has collaborated with a range of local organisations, including Te Ora Hou – to put on Children’s Day. Our VOYCE kaimahi arrived dressed and ready for a day of fun and laughter with tamariki of all ages. Staff were kitted out in tutu’s glitter and hair accessories, which kept everyone entertained.

The team was armed with a few simple resources, wire, beads and soapy bubble mixture – which all came together to make the most fun activity: BUBBLE WANDS!

Our kaimahi spent hours helping tamariki create their own bubble wands, picking the beads that they wanted and putting them onto the pre-moulded wire wands. Once they’d made their wands, tamariki were able to try them out with the bubble mixture, and then take them home to add to their collection of fun knick knacks they got to collect from the event.

We were joined by a member of the Te Tai Tokerau Regional Youth Council and their tamariki for the tūhono, which made it super special.

The VOYCE stall is always a popular place to stop and team made over 300 wands! That is non-stop production, with so many tamariki coming through to get their hands on their own bubble wand. We can’t wait to do the same again next year!
