Throughout September, we’ve been delivering an 8-week programme of outdoor creative and environmental activities for local children called Curiosity Club.
The club has been going really well and we’ve been lucky to have a core group of children who enthusiastically come along each week – come rain or shine!
The children have been learning how to use the environment around them to get inspired and be creative. So far, we’ve made natural bunting from sticks, windsocks from recycled plastic cups, natural dye from handpicked berries and created sand art on the beach.
During these outdoor activities, the children
get to see first hand the impact litter has on our environment. We hope that this will inspire them to make
better choices and find creative ways to recycle in the future. On the 26th September, we hosted a Den Building Workshop for families in partnership with The City of Play. The families were given tools, pallets and instructions to let their imaginations go wild. The event was well attended and we were impressed with the variety of dens that were created.
I’ve really enjoyed working on Curiosity Club so far and look forward to making the most of the remaining two weeks!
