Join us every 'Second Saturday of the Month' for some young-people-led free play, suitable for toddlers to 15-year-olds, but really anyone can join.
A chance to take part in a range of unstructured activities, all designed to encourage children and young people to use their imagination. A space that gives freedom for young-people to determine and control the content and intent of their play, by following their own instincts, ideas and interests. Let’s Create supports the right to play as fundamental to development.
Your hosts Georgie and Alex are here to help, encourage and pass parents and carers the scissors kept safely in our tool kit.
So, what is Let’s Create?
Think outdoors with scrap-store materials loose parts, lots of cardboard boxes, plenty of googly eyes, messy play, crafts, feathers, ribbons, toilet rolls, all of the paint, things and stuff, and tons of fun! Bring your imagination and Let’s Create whatever you want.
Build a den, hide out amongst the boxes, create a tower or a ribbon wand. Try painting with bubble wrap or your elbows… the space is yours for creating. There is total freedom and there is no pressure or prescribed expectations of what anyone should be doing, just pure imagination.
We know this can be daunting at times, so we offer one or two activities as a way in to get you started.
Each time we’ve welcomed children & young adults of all ages. We find teenagers get just as much out of it as toddlers & babes in arms. Hosted on a Saturday parents and carers love being able to bring all their children knowing they will each enjoy it and not have to spend lots of money. We always welcome feedback and suggestions.
Let’s Create uses the Playwork Principles as its core framework.
Every so often we will be making the session an extra special one with a guest creative. SO keep your googly eyes peeled for news by signing up to our newsletter and following our social media.
