Foster carers make a real difference to children’s lives. They help them through tough times and give them the support they need to achieve their potential.

 

Foster carers are always thinking of fun activities for their foster children. These activities help with bonding, learning skills and help children and young people to open up (foster children’s identity protected where needed).

 

Christmas Fostering Diaries – Christmas is a tough time for ‘looked after’ children, but foster carers work very hard to make that time easier…

 

‘Elf on the shelf’ is having a whale of a time making ‘flour’ angels.

 

We go to Crealy and for Santa’s post office and write letters to Santa, do some Christmas baking and of course…visit Father Christmas! – Sarah-Jane

It’s important to remember all the children we have had the pleasure of having as a part of our family, no matter how long or short – Teresa

Summer Fostering Diaries

 

When school’s out, foster carers are always thinking of fun activities for their foster children. These activities help with bonding, learning skills and help children and young people to open up.

Real foster carers share their pictures here of a ‘day in the life’:

 

Day out – hunting for the ‘Grommits’ in Bristol

 

Thanks to Natasha for this one: Summer fostering activities. “1st experience of sand at the beach!” #lovetofoster

 

 

Weekend fostering activities from foster carer Paula: “Helping children realise the sky is the limit – both these children found this hard but pushed their boundaries and conquered the high ropes”.

 

Thanks for the pics you’ve been sending in on your Summer fostering activities:

“Waiting for the train in Minehead with the children and Sonny the dog” – Dave, foster carer.

Foster chidren out with the England visually impaired cricket team having a go – new experiences!

“All in one day of the holidays tie dying t-shirts, painting rocks and a walk through the sunflowers”. #LovetoFoster

“Out with short breaks team, building dens and woodland crafts” – Paula, Foster Carer

“I’ve just bought this worry monster: Children can write down their worries and he will eat them . I thought it’s great to have one in a fostering home for birth and looked after children to share their worries. #ProudtoFoster – Helen
