Week 3 – Friday 20th January
- For all of our programs at TimberNook we won’t offer anything that is not environmentally friendly such as soap foam, shaving cream, or detergents so we can be sustainable.
- We will have the water slide each day and schedule it for the same time. This way we can be mindful of the water we’re using. Our waterslide will run from 12.30-1.15, by this time everyone has eaten and all dry before going home, great way to finish the day on a high.
- Please remember to be sun safe, pack sun safe bathers (or even an old t shirt!) and an extra pair of clothes to get changed in to.
- We will still light the fire and have snacks each day!
PLEASE NOTE: We are now accepting 2023 Creative Kids Vouchers. If you would like to use your 2023 voucher, please make your bookings first, then email us at [email protected]
Castles and Swords!
Children use their imagination to create grand play schemes.
Motor Skills: Building swords and castles promotes fine and gross motor development in
Sensory Integration: Children who engage in swordplay with one another benefit from
the opportunity this gives to work on visual spatial processing, motor planning and body
awareness as they need to stay aware of their opponent and react quickly both defensively
Social Skills: Children will interact with one another as they build their castles. There will
be compromise and collaboration as they decide together what the design of the castle
should be and change plans if theirs aren’t working.
Cognitive Skills: As children create their own swords from loose parts, they will need to
generate an idea, plan their materials and execute the construction
