Second in a series of early years art sessions with Artist/Early Years Facilitator Eilis O'Toole

Sensory play enhances learning through hands-on activities that stimulate the child’s senses. These immersive workshops will provide an opportunity for creative exploration of their world by playing with various homemade sensory materials, natural materials and art materials. These are messy, fun, creative and social workshops where children and parents/care givers have the opportunity to play and create alongside each other. The sessions will take place over 5 weeks.

Week 2 - Cardboard Playground

The Cardboard Playground is a space where children and their parents/carers can create their own playground, town, space, etc using cardboard! A variety of extra materials will be provided to aid them in constructing their space.
