SpareParts at Home
We might not be on the road this summer but that doesn’t stop you getting involved from home. Our friends at Minerva Arts have come up with some easy ways to get creative – have a go and share with us – we will repost and include them in our website gallery.
Celebrating Transport and Journeys
What modes of transport do you and your family normally take? The bus to work, car to school, train to grandparents? How have your journeys changed during lockdown? Have you used any new modes of transport? Have you learned to ride your bike?
Mechanical Creatures and Materials
Materials. Find as many different materials around your house as you can i.e. fabric, wood, paper, card, plastic. Can you make a creature out of just one of those materials? How does it move? How strong is it? Now try and make one out of a few of the different materials- does this look and feel better? Can you move like a mechanical creature? How does a machine move? What music would your creature enjoy? Take a photo and share with us on Facebook and Twitter.
