Activity Packs

During the coming weeks and months when opportunities for us to meet as a group will be limited, we will be offering a range of activity packs for children to enjoy from their home, creating and building exciting projects using a range of natural materials and recycled woods. Whilst we appreciate that online activities will be great for children to interact with friends and help give creative learning ideas it is also important to take time out, away from the computer, tv and phones and get hands on with some fun projects. Many of our activities can be supplemented with a short walk in the park or local woodland to collect more useful items to use or simple waste materials from around the home can be recycled and added to enhance your childs project.

 

All our packs come in a re-usable cotton bag which can be decorated using fabric pens or simple felt tip pens (although would not be washable), and reused for future projects. Bags can be refilled with a new activity at a discount rate.

 

We currently have 3 activity packs available and will be adding to these over the coming weeks;

Marb;le runs

 

One of our most popular tools activities is now available for you to enjoy at home.  In this pack we use recycled wood and household materials to create a project where children use design skills and creativity to make a fun marble run that they can play with for hours. Children design the lay out of their run and mark it out on prepared wodd and then the fun starts!  Sanding, hammering and screwing in objects for the marbles to roll down and hit off as it travels to the finish line, their deisgns and ingenuity have no limits!

All you need to do is provide the hammer!

We are currently working on more fun projects for your children to take home and enjoy so keep visiting our page for updates in the near future.
