Mini Makers - World Book Day, The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Two sessions each day at 10.30am – 12.00pm & 1.30pm – 3.00pm

Babies and toddlers will have the opportunity to explore various materials across the sessions including paint, glitter, paste, sand, clay, slimy spaghetti, chalk and much more. Messy play is an important element of early childhood development, appealing to children’s curiosity and helping them to understand the world through their senses. These sessions will also expose them to early mark making, enabling them to develop good concentration, muscle control and encourage their imaginations. Arrive anytime and be prepared to get messy!

5 March – World Book Day, The Very Hungry Caterpillar – Join us for our annual celebration of World Book Day with our retelling of The Very Hungry Caterpillar in our Sensory Stories and Mini Maker Sessions. Our sensory tuff trays will be full of explosions of colour and toys to play with, plus get messy with paint as we print caterpillar patterns, make footprint butterflies and more.

It is advisable that you and your child wear items of clothing that you are happy to risk getting paint on. Whilst the paint is water based it may stain if not washed out quickly. Many of our regular visitors have a dedicated 'messy' outfit for the purposes of enjoying this session to its fullest extent, with a spare outfit to change into afterwards.

Designed for age 0-4, but all are welcome
