A journey into Creativity

Posted on June 22, 2017 by Nikki Buckland

Wonder - a feeling of amazement and admiration, caused by something beautiful and remarkable

Join us in our magical world of wonder, imagination and creativity as we take the children on an exploration through nature.  The world is changing at such a blistering pace, I think we sometimes forget to slow down and really appreciate and absorb the nature that we are surrounded by.

I am so so in love with our latest film.  We shared a magical afternoon with friends crafting with nature.  The inspiration behind our film was to take the children on a journey through play and discovery outdoors; to notice the colours, textures of the plants, leaves that had fallen from the Autumn season and the new growth in winter.  I wanted to open their minds to drawing inspiration from nature and creating art from what nature provides, whilst respecting the environment around us.

Spoiler alert - look out for the butterfly ✨

Creative expression and empowering children through creativity is the very core of what we hope to achieve through our classes.

Being creative opens our hearts and doors to our mind. It brings us to hidden parts of ourselves which allows recognition of our uniqueness and identity. The benefits of working with your hands, using fine motor skills and creative problem solving are insurmountable.
