After a good old hunt, children were rewarded for their efforts with a music themed goodie bag.

Meanwhile back at base, delighted children were encouraged to exercise their imagination by painting cardboard drums. They also got the chance to have glitter tattoos decorated on their wrists, with a musical theme attached.
