These classes are for toddlers & preschoolers and their parents/ carers. You can pick any lessons that you like and work at a speed that you and your students feel comfortable with. Always remember to make the craft first before presenting a class. We will be uploading new lessons on an ongoing basis.

This large scale colourful painting is fun to paint and creating the car and cloud is a great way to develop fine motor skills.
CALM DOWN SENSORY BOTTLES
As the name describes they are great for calming down kids who are in timeout, bored & fidgety in the car, anxious or struggling with sensory overload. Focusing on the objects in the calm down jar will help a child calm down and focus their attention.
This craft was fun to make and can be a very useful tool after class.

This is a really fun interactive lesson. The children loved the shaking game after class.
This is a really fun craft to make and will provide hours of play afterwards. It was a hit especially with the 4 and 5 year olds. The children really loved the iPad ‘touch screen goo’ and to move their iPad icons into place, its educational and fun. This craft is a must for all branch owners!
Humpty Dumpty DOORSTOP
The children really loved filling their Humpty Dumpty’s with sand couldn’t believe how heavy and squishy it got. Plan this for a nice day as you need to be outside when working with sand.

horses and unicorns
A long time ago, when the earth was green,
there were more kinds of animals, but the loveliest of them all, was the unicorn.
Make a fluffy, floppy, huggable and cuddly soft toy caterpillar. This is a really easy and enjoyable craft for the kids and the adults.
This is a fantastic follow up class after the caterpillar class. Remember to tell the kids about the wings when you make caterpillars to create excitement.
They will fly home after this class :).
Ask the children if they have visited the local aquarium. What did they like best? We are always in awe of watching the beautiful jellyfish swim around in their tanks. Make your own multi coloured jelly fish today.
A rain stick is originally made from hollowed plant stalks which, when turned, produces a pattering sound similar to that of rain. The sound produced by the instrument has contributed to the common notion that the rain stick has historically been used in rituals to summon rain.
This craft is a hit for all ages!
Did you know that without gravity, we would fall right off of Earth’s surface and float away?
Or that gravity is the reason our monster comes back down after reaching the top, instead of just traveling higher and higher?
More info on this class coming soon...
With this craft we will be working with SHAVING FOAM! Shaving foam is one of the best materials for sensory play – it’s like bubble bath foam that doesn’t fade away! Sensory play encourages children to manipulate and mold materials, building up their fine motor skills and coordination.
Robot, robot, Turn around. Robot, robot, Touch the ground.
