Still Covid, still fun

By Andrea Fleischmann | Project Leader

Covid still largely determines our everyday life. 

Nevertheless, we try to make our special guest children and their families forget the daily routine here at Kupferhof and give them a nice time.

Due to contact restrictions and lockdown most of the events cannot take place right now. This makes it all the more pleasant that some activities are possible on site at Kupferhof (of course under strict hygiene measures):

 

  • Tiergestützte Pädagogik “Wolkenmobil” (animal-assisted education)

When “Wolkenmobil” is invited, Kupferhof appears even more colorful. Everyone is looking forward to the various animals, such as dogs, hens, guinea pigs, giant snails.

It´s been proven again and again, that animals can make us smile without words.

Some kids dared to touch an animal for the very first time. Others managed to calm down with the animal´s support and could relax.

  • Musiktherapie (music therapy)

Music is a good way to release or to express emotions especially for children with complex disabilities.

The kids cannot even hear the music, but can also feel it. The vibration of the different sounds provides an opportunity to feel their body and contribute their well-being.

  • “Clowns im Einsatz” (Clowns at Work)

Whenever the clowns stop at Kupferhof, there is dancing, singing and especially laughter everywhere.

Our special kids seem to become weightless. The clowns contribute the general well-being, following the slogan: Laughter is the best medicine.

 

These activities are only possible thanks to your donations, thank you very much!
