Aesop’s Fables Workshop and Puppet Making
Share memories of your childhood with your children through our Aesop’s Fables storytelling & puppet making workshop this Easter! Fables and other moral stories made their way into our books and cartoons when we were kids, but somewhere along the way, we’ve probably forgotten some of the important lessons they teach!
The ethos of this workshop is to teach the lessons of these popular fables in a fun, social and positive entertaining way then each child creates their own puppet to bring home and share their learnings! Duration: 1 hr. Cost: €10.00 per child
Flora and Fauna Workshop of Wells
Our Flora and Fauna workshop has been designed to give children a sense of wonder and respect for the natural environment using the setting of the Wells estate. Under the supervision of our leaders, the children work together in teams and will experience the gardens and the natural world. The workshops include tasks and fun learning games to complete during the woodland walk and we then compare all our findings, in the arts and crafts time when the child will choose to decorate either a bug house/bird house or create their own nature collage to take home.
This workshop is designed to connect children with nature and the environment and develop their ‘green time’. Outdoor education is important- it may help concentration and memory. Children gain a sense of wonder and respect for the natural environment. Duration: 1 hr. Cost: 10.00 per child
Creative Activity Workshop
Our Creative Activity workshop is designed to team build and give the children a sense of fun and build their confidence and camaraderie. The tasks and sports activities are all centered on the enjoyment of participation. This workshop will leave the children feeling a sense of fulfilment and good self-esteem. Sport and other physical activities can contribute to the development of self-esteem in kids.
All materials provided. Duration: 1hr Cost: 10.00 per child
