Practical Ideas

Build your own Miniature Sensory Garden - Phil Woodruff 

"Sensory play engages children, helping them explore and discover the world – and using their senses through sensory play is recognised as an integral part in their development. Sensory Play includes any activity that will stimulate any one or all of a child’s five senses." © Copyright 2020 garden4me Limited. Come along and join me as we create and learn about what makes a good sensory garden by making our own miniature ones.

Whittling Little Wooden Things - Christopher Roberts 

Often when risk is involved, especially with sticks and sharp knifes, it’s hard to retain focus on the playwork principles. Recently I've been experimenting with ways of setting up and providing opportunities for playing with sharp woodworking tools wile retaining good playwork practice inline with the playwork principles. In this workshop we will explore ways of setting up and holding a woodwork space. We will utilises cheap, old fashioned hand tools and discuss practical ways of managing risk with specific tools. We will sit and make little toys together and I'll share some observations and reflections that I've taken from the play settings I've worked in.

Making Simple Den Frames - Simon Rix

Watching children skateboard can be very nerve racking and scary, but I think less so if you know how to skate yourself! Come and learn how to skateboard, you’ll be cruising down the street in no time. I have some knowledge of the history of skateboarding which may be interesting to discuss too. Wear trainers if you can. Warning participation may result in injury and/or extreme exhilaration!
