This workshop can fit into two and a half hours and can last up to half a day depending on what materials and detail are added. For older children the workshop is slightly different, with cutout windows , to show the light from a battery powered tea light.

Christmas Baubles make a good extension task or a full workshop depending on what materials and decoration you decide to use. They can be made from  recycled materials such as Christmas Cards, wrapping paper and tetra packs. When Christmas is over they fold away as a book for easy storage until next year.

Day of the Dead

Suitable for all ages.

 

Developed for family drop in sessions this workshop can be used as an extension task or as a more complex workshop looking at culture and creating repetative or symetrical patterns.

Variations Suitable for all ages. This workshop can fit into two and a half hours and can last up to half a day depending on what materials and detail are added. For older children the workshop is slightly different, with cutout windows , to show the light from a battery powered tea light.  I developed two alternative workshops to work with yr 9's at Prenton high school, with the first house becoming a box to hold gingerbread ingredients and the second to hold a gingerbread man tree decoration which was used for family drop in sessions.
