Tuesday 9th July
10:00am - 3:00pm
160 Aitken St Gisborne

Loose Parts Play

Empty boxes, rope, string and pieces of wood. Packaging over toys. Children will almost inevitably play with these items! This is known as Loose Parts Play and, with support, can encourage learning, growth and development. Loose parts play provides children of all ages and stages with an enabling environment full of interesting objects that support curiosity, creativity, imagination and invention. With no prescribed method of play, children can assign their own purpose and meaning to the objects they are playing with allowing them to explore, create and imagine in all the senses of those words. 

Pocket Friends/Protection Dolls

Participants will explore their feelings and develop coping skills through sculpting and creating their own pocket dolls figures or pocket friend characters to help them feel protected and comforted. Making this figure allows participants to create their own physical symbol of their protector. It helps them explore their desires and what they would like to manifest in their life.

Decorative Mask Making

Participants will explore their feelings and emotions through creating a mask. This mask can allow them to express what they would like to conceal or reveal about how they are feeling.

Participants can draw their design first. They will have the opportunity to explore different materials and mediums and develop creativity skills in adding details.
