Our Programme

Sensory Storytime: Jellyfish and Plastic Bags

Wed 7 April, 2.30pm

Book “Sensory Storytime: Jellyfish and Plastic Bags” on Eventbrite

Session delivered via Zoom

A sensory story adventure where you make the sound effects, feel and smell parts of the story, and have fun together with other families. We go on a simple scavenger hunt (around your home) at the start, so we can create a sensory story together. We then read a book together with the added sensory fun! This week’s theme is Plastic Bags and Jellyfish.

Free, must be booked on Eventbrite, suggested ages 2-8 years, all welcome. Session delivered via Zoom.

LIVE online Banana Carving Craft!
