Activities to help kids understand vision impairment
Seeing Eye Dogs Australia (SEDA) have just held their very successful and well attended Open Day and Kensington and now have something else planned specifically for the kids!

These school holidays, kids are invited to take part in SEDA's school holiday program, which they claim is the 'paw-fect way to entertain and educate'.

And if their recent Open Day is anything to go by, the program will be a fun-filled, adorable puppy petting day.

There's educational activities which put kids into the shoes of someone who is blind along with fun activities like making dog biscuits which can be taken home to treat their special furry friend.

Kids can also cuddle Seeing Eye Puppies and watch them play in their new 'Puppy Play Centre'.

The newly built National Puppy Centre has extensive viewing areas, including indoor and outdoor areas, allowing the children to view puppies playing.

Children will also go on a guided tour through the centre while completing their very own activity book. SEDA's guided tours are a great way to help children appreciate all of the valuable work SEDA does to help change the lives of people who are blind by providing the gift of independence and mobility, as well as the joy of companionship. The book also conveniently includes additional activities to keep them entertained during the rest of the holidays.
