Wednesday November 5, 2014

9:30 am - 11:00 am

Cost: $40 - Includes a StartKit of play materials

The winter is coming and you may be wondering, what am I going to do with my little one all day when we are inside all winter? Children are naturally curious about their environment and they love to use their 5 senses to explore everything around them. I would love to share some ideas with you as to how to stage a host of invitations for your little one to explore his or her surroundings through play. Many of the invitations that I stage for my children are with materials that can be readily found around my house. I do, however, keep an inventory of certain purchased materials that we use time and again. Some of these will be provided for you in the StartKit you will receive at the workshop.  

This particular workshop will be tailored to infants, ages 4 months to 18 months, but with ideas for how to modify and expand for older children, as well. The workshop will include 4 elements:

1. A list of supplies to have on hand, both those you may have on hand and those you may want to purchase

2. Visual and written descriptions of how to create at least 20 "invitations" for your child to begin exploring various materials

3. Ideas for how to see items or spaces in your home as opportunities for your child to explore through play

4. Your own StartKit to help you begin creating opportunities for exploratory play with your little one(s).

Some example ideas for which I will have an "invitation" set up, include Noodle Art, Fun with Rocks, Pipe Cleaner Play, and Various Sensory Bins.

Children under 18 months are welcome to come, though childcare will not be provided.
