Little Trinity Nursery children in support of Kidderminster Library’s festive Christmas Card Appeal have all been busy painting and colouring their Christmas cards ready for local people to enjoy.
Nursery Manager, Miss Gaynor Carter, said: “The children love to take part in creative activities and this seasonal pursuit enables them to use their artistic talents to make their own special Christmas card.”
Every year the nursery take part in the appeal with the children creating truly distinctive Christmas cards, which are then distributed by Kidderminster Library to the elderly and housebound in the local community at Christmastime, along with a selection of library books to read and enjoy throughout the festive season.
Using a whole host of design skills, the children now have numerous Christmas card creations.
Based within the grounds of Holy Trinity School and Sixth Form Centre on the Birmingham Road, Little Trinity Nursery offers pre-school childcare from 2 years of age, with imaginative play at the core of nursery activities helping to assist in the children’s hand and eye co-ordination, literacy and numeracy skills, motor skills and communication development.
Miss Carter added: “This annual activity offers the children a opportunity to express themselves and it’s lots of fun, whilst also helping to support development of fine motor skills as they practice writing their name on the inside of their Christmas card.
“Supporting the Christmas Card Appeal is such as worthwhile cause. It helps spread a little joy within the local community for those who may not be able to share Christmas with family.”
