Last weekend, FootieBugs and DanceBugs were asked to run free activity sessions for children in Solihull by Mell Square, as part of Mini Mells!
Throughout the Summer Holidays, Mini Mells are running two free activity sessions ever Saturday over a four-week period to give children in Solihull the chance to get active for free! For the third week of Mini Mells – it was our turn to run the activities!
It is extremely important for children to remain physically active during school holidays and not fall into a habit of staying inside all day watching TV or scrolling through their phones!
DanceBugs ran the first session at 10:30am, where we practised the Cha-Cha Slide and then learnt lots of new dance moves and routines. We also had lots of fun using different equipment like hula-hoops and ribbons as a group together and you can see a short video of the session by visiting our Facebook page here.
After DanceBugs’ session it was FootieBugs turn at 12pm – where we played lots of fun football and multi-sports minigames. Children also went on a special FootieBugs story adventure, which helped to engage everyone in the session! Please visit our Facebook page to view some of the pictures of the session!
It was great to see so many children attending and joining in with both sessions on Saturday, breaking up the summer holidays with fun football and dance sessions! Both FootieBugs and DanceBugs would like to thank Mell Square and Mini Mells for inviting us to run the sessions and hope that we will be able to run more in the future!
