Interactive Sensory Storytelling for babies not yet walking and NOW toddlers too!
Jan
20
to May 19

Interactive Sensory Storytelling for babies not yet walking and NOW toddlers too!

Sensory play and interactive storytelling activities inspired by collections at

The Beecroft Art Gallery

My unique story-based session lasts approximately 55 minutes and is split into two parts: a delivered story journey followed by free-choice sensory play.

By using rhyme, alliteration, repetition and song we draw the babies and toddlers into a magical world and offer them each the opportunity to be a part of the story journey with assorted tactile props along the way.

During the sensory play part of the session there is further opportunity for the babies and toddlers to explore these open-ended resources, largely made from stimulating and interesting natural materials, to support their understanding of the world around them. We finish up with a short shared song session to draw a gentle close to the session.

 

Two sessions on each date at 11am for babies not yet walking and 1.00pm for toddlers

Friday 20th January, 24th February, 24th March and 21st April.
