Today we ran our first Easter Workshop and it was simply brilliant!
At ImagineCreate we were wondering whether our aim of supporting children to develop their confidence and self-esteem would be as effective with only two children in our workshop session. We are pleased to report that without a doubt, the aim was achieved ten fold! Our two superstars came into the session and were amazing. They didn't know each other, but through talking to each other and getting creative with Lego and paper they didn't stop talking! There was a lot of laughter when we had to create sun-shines, castles, ice-creams and rockets - counting down from 5 to blast them off!
When it came to creating the drawings to poetry, the amazing end results were very different, with each person interpreting the poem in their own unique way. The grown ups even had a go which made it more interesting too! The 'Big Reveal' was yet again so much fun. We each took it in turns to describe our pictures and everybody said something that was their favourite part, making it a very worthwhile, positive experience.
We can't wait for the next workshop and wonder what creative and imaginative minds will arrive next week!
