Intergenerational Playgroup - Lynbrook This month, Your Child in Casey and Cardinia joined in the fun at an intergenerational playgroup, at Mercy Aged Care in Lynbrook. Every week, Pheba from Hey De Ho Cranbourne, leads the residents, along with local children and families, through music, play and fun. Pheba brought an incredible collection of percussion instruments and finger puppets, and has a huge repertoire of children songs and nursery rhymes, but most beautifully, it was the gorgeous children who encouraged the residents to join in and the residents were smiling and joining right in!

Hey De Ho include activities where they incorporate the residents favourite music from times past. When “Que Sera Sera” started playing, resident Phyllis got straight up and started to sing and dance. There was a request for “twist & shout” and so everyone, young and old got up and had a dance. This was 2 weeks ago and I and I am still riding the wave of happiness it bought me, such a beautiful morning. 18
