Ambassador's Interactive Workshop March 2013

On Monday the 18th of March the Ambassadors had an interactive workshop with Lynda Elliot to learn about Play at Rainbows. The evening got really messy and involved some hand finger and feet painting. Ambassadors were taught why it was important for our children and their families to take part in our Play Therapy.

Ambassadors now have their own example of a play project to take out and about when they do talks and a better understanding of what play means to our families and why it's an essential part of the Rainbows experience.
