Story Sacks

Ref: C2527607

Story sacks are a wonderful way to make reading more enjoyable and interactive for both children and adults. They include a children's book supported with toys and games to bring the book to life. Following on from the introductory session you will plan and carry out some activities to make games and props. This may include crafts such as sewing, knitting, drawing, card crafts, paper crafts. You will be supported at every stage by the tutor, so you are not expected to have any prior knowledge or practical skills.

Course aim

Following on from the introductory session, you will start to design and make the toys and games that go into a story sack to make reading more enjoyable and interactive for both children and adults.
