Crafty Tales

Help nourish your pre-schooler’s imagination and creativity through a craft activity and multi-sensory story time, planned around a fabulous picture book run by Story Craft Theatre.

Every Friday until 6 December 2019 (excluding 1 November).

11 October: Sometimes I Feel Sunny

Its not always easy to articulate how we feel; sometimes we have sunny days and  sometimes we have grumpy days…..they are all part of life’

This week we’ll be reading a beautiful funny, sunny book and making a ‘Wheel of Feeling’.

18 October: Something Fishy

Something fishy is going on, and not in a good way. All our faithful feline wants is a swishiest squishiest fish but everyone is acting very strangely.

It’s time to prepare for a new arrival. Help craft a fun gift and find out if puss gets her dinner after all!

25 October: Walking through the Jungle

With a Chitter Chatter a Trump Trump and the odd Grrrrrrr . . . let’s go for a walk through the jungle. What can you see? Can you hear a noise? What could it be?

It’s one big adventure this week. We’ll be meeting creatures big and small in the wilderness and making some cute little critters ourselves..  .but what sounds do they make?

8 November: The Noisy Foxes

Sometimes it’s nice to have a break, especially if you live in a noisy city. Join the foxes as they try out the quiet of the countryside.  Can they keep the noise down though? We’ll be making our own crafty instruments in case we fancy making a bit of banging and clanging too.

15 November: This Moose Belongs to Me

There are rules to owning a pet. Like number 11 – providing shelter from the rain or rule 16 – knocking things down that are out of your reach!

This week it’s all about antlers, apples and . . . not getting lost on your way home!

22 November: In Wibbly’s Garden

Wibbly Pig has lost his cuddly toy piggly. Have you seen it? He’s found lots of other things in his garden; including a special bean, but no piggly. Perhaps you can help him look for it.

This weeks story will take us far up into the sky. You don’t need to have green fingers but maybe a head for heights will help as we go up into the clouds on a beanstalk!

29 November: The Runaway Pea

‘He might only be small but he wants to have fun!’ What an adventure such a tiny pea can have. Don’t assume just because you’re little you can’t do a lot.

Come and join our little green friend as he discovers all the joys and wonder a kitchen can have as well what he can create himself. We’ll be creating our favourite meals for our craft.

6 December: Stick Man

‘Stick Man lives in the family tree with his stick lady love and their stick children three.’ Life for Stick Man is about to be very different as he meets a Dog, a Girl, a Swan and even Santa Claus.

Come and see if Stick Man will make it back home in time for Christmas with one of Story Craft Theatre’s favourite books.
