We are going to try and run a craft club in our P7 year at school on a Friday morning. The aim is to be less tablet, PlayStation and phone minded trying to show kids that technology isn't everything. So I will be armed with tapestry needles, bits of canvas and left over wool hoping to have some converts!
Its very sad that technology has totally taken over for hobbies with the young.....now I'm sounding old!!
I love that about nursery, their brain are incredibly inventive. Sadly though some loose their inventiveness when it's not used enough as they get older, or they seem shy to be seen liking to play with Lego at 12 which my class are.
I've brought in colouring for fun already and have converts there, I've taken in a huge box of Lego which gets played with occasionally, the knex stuff hardly gets played with as you need to have an imagination to create with it.
