Some of our wonderful volunteers are coming together to create videos of crafts that your children can do at home. Yes it is just like the craft table at Skylarks, but at home! (Sorry that we can't be in your homes to clear up any mess!).
Watch these pre-recorded videos from home at a time to suit you.
Our first video, number 4458, is "FISH" and comes from our lovely new volunteer Noelia and is edited by one of our previous volunteers, Joana, now furloughed from her work.
Our second video, number 4501, is "POM-POMS". Noelia shows you how to make a pompom using any wool or yarn you have lying around. Maybe you have an old holey jumper you could unwind! A lovely sensory activity.
Our third video, number 4505, is SANDPAPER AND CHALK. A lovely sensory experience from Joana, using these two materials together, in a slow-paced tranquil way.
Our fourth video, number 4506, is FROZEN TOYS. A great creative idea, especially in this hot weather. It doesn't take much preparation but will keep children entertained!
Our fifth video, number 4527, is called FUN WITH A BAG OF WATER! All you needs is a Ziplock bag! Have fun with refraction (there's a bit of science in there too!)
Most of these creative activities were made by our own volunteers but sometimes there is a bit of footage from YouTube which we acknowledge and for which we are very grateful.
We hope you enjoy these videos and making your own art at home. Do send us any photographs or videos showing how you used our ideas!
