Event description

Description

This multi-sensory playgroup session is open to all families within the Northern Yorke Peninsula and incorporates three mini workshops, provided in a rotational format to give children an opportunity to discover, create and design using natural materials from the earth. Parents/Carers MUST ACCOMPANY CHILDREN to this playgroup session.

The session will be held during Wallaroo Mines Primary School in Kadina. A maximum of 30 children can attend so bookings are ESSENTIAL. All ages are welcome but this session is best suited to chilren 3yo+.

Workshop 1 – Loose Parts: Using medium size natural loose parts, students become the engineer to create and design. Loose parts is a highly researched theory involving open ended materials that encourage children’s creativity and imagination. We encourage you to read the NPSA info sheet on Loose parts on our website: natureplaysa.org.au/loose-partscreativitydiscovery-imagination/

Workshop 2 – Sensory Play: Involves slippery, slimy sensory play where students have the freedom to touch and explore a variety of mediums including clay, sensory playdough and smaller natural loose parts to make a creation inspired by their imagination

Workshop 3 – Seed Bombs: Small groups create seed bombs (clay bundles filled with seed) that children can take home to ‘explode’ in their garden or at their school sites, and watch the transformation unfold.

The session will be led by qualified educators and trainers who are experienced, enthusiastic, and passionate about connecting children, families and educators to nature in a way that is fun and engaging. They will use provocations and open-ended questions to guide children’s self discovery and learning at age appropriate levels and will ensure children are inspired and engaged.
