Children’s photography workshops

Do your children love using your camera phone and compact camera?!
Are you wondering what they can do in the summer holidays? Well, Amanda White from Amanda White Photography has your answer

Click Kids -Photography Workshops.
Amanda says: “Earlier this year I launched my ‘Click Kids’ ~ Photography Workshops for Kids, and I must say that it was such a great success and all the children that attended were such budding little photographers. I am running two workshops during the Summer Holidays, so if your child is creative, loves the great outdoors and is always taking photographs, then this could be the workshop for them! Click Kids is all about making photography fun and hands-on with everyday and familiar things that they can do at home to carry on their new found enthusiasm.”
Amanda used to be a primary school teacher, and is a fab natural photographer. So she is combining two skills to help develop your child’s budding skills.
These sessions are filling fast, so please book to avoid disappointment.
For Children age 8-12. Times: 10am – 1pm
£35 per child (additional siblings £25 each)
Don’t forget their cameras!

Internation Mud Day

Well where do I start…

International Mud Day is celebrated Monday 29th June. I was told about this experience through my past employed who embraced outdoor play.

So now I’m self employed Childminder I thought I would embrace it too, over the full week.

Internation Mud Day is to celebrate mud, it’s uses and to help connect all children across the world via Mud. I never realised its main uses until I looked into it more. I believe in outdoor play, self discovery nature so this hit the spot well.

On Monday on of the children I care for had their birthday so to celebrate too we have a mud tea party with pigs in mud, mud cake. All the children loved it, 🙂

Throught out out the week we have been looking at the purpose of mud, from helping things grow, feeding our fruit and vegetable, to construction and even used for some beauty treatments.

The children have loved activities like mud baking (yes they had every pot, pant etc out my kitchen), planting seeds, exploring  dry, wet sand soggy mud with our bodies. Mud painting adding different colours and even the children had a little mud fight.

We attempted to make a mud house but in this got weather used too much water hehe. For or the extra funny sensory exploration side we even made editable mud and worms the under 3z loved using taste, smell and touch for this.

At at the end of the week we are ending it twitch a trip to local trentham gardens to do the barefoot mud walk. All the children have had a fab week and really embraced all the activities. Even the parent shave not minded the extra mess on old clothes.
