Creative Play

SCHOOLS:

Outdoor creative play with our play rangers to helps your child's imagination run wild while developing strong links to their local community.

The sessions are designed to encourage children to develop creative skills, confidence outdoors and help them make new friends. After joining us, children will have met new people, learned games they can play outdoors with little or no materials and discovered their local park through a completely different lens.

From creating abstract sculptures out of organic materials found in the park to building birds’ nests, or doing forest treasure hunts, storytelling and painting with mud, Creative Play will ignite children’s imagination and encourage a deeper and more creative contact with the outdoors.

Over 8 weeks children will be collected from school at 3:15pm and taken to Inch Park for an engaging creative play session and a healthy snack. Children are to be collected from Inch Park Community Sports Centre at 5pm by parents/carers.

Week 1 and 6 a parent/carer is requested to stay with their child and join-in. A goody bag will be given to each family on week 6. Children should be dressed for playing outdoors (old clothes, warm / waterproof jacket, wellies.)


FREE DROP-IN SESSIONS: (ON HOLD DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS)
