There are lots of things going on at Inkpots over Easter, so I thought that it would be helpful to do a quick round up. This is the first time that Inkpots has provided some school holiday activities that children other than those local to our base in West Sussex UK, can join. I really hope that you’ll find something that fits in with your plans.
During the school Easter holidays, Inkpots will be running a online Story Fest from 11 – 13 April. We are hoping that as many children from all over Britain (even the world!) age 8 to 11 years as possible will join in, making this a giant story telling celebration. And it’s all free!
More details are in a video I have made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1ChJyst9hc
This will be a great opportunity to encourage children’s story writing over the school holidays, as well as a chance to connect with other like-minded families. It will be brilliant fun! The link to sign up is here too: http://bit.ly/2nKiSHw
If you are local, our Easter Holiday Workshop will be on Wednesday 19 April in the Cyprus Hall in Burgess Hill. More details can be found here: http://bit.ly/2jFIpP4
As always with the holiday workshops, there will be loads of different writing and craft activities – and home-made cake!
I have also been asked to take part in the Haywards Heath Arts Trail and am running several workshops on Saturday 15 April. More details are via our website:https://inkpots.org/wordpress/haywards-heath-arts-day/
Finally, there is our rather lovely chocolate-themed activity pack. Our pack (which is aimed at 7 – 10 year olds) is full of activities which will delight and entertain children while, at the same time, gently encouraging them to use words creatively and fire up their imaginations. The activities culminate in a set of story starters designed to trigger off a train of thought, leading to amazing tales! I have been told that it’s particularly for children to pass the time during a long journey. So if you’re heading off this Easter, here’s the link: http://bit.ly/2hpRMTd
