About The Event
Friday 28th August- Friday 2nd October 2020
We have created a weekly meet-up where you can come together to make something unique and fun for your baby. This 6 week group is a special time for you to come and get your hands busy with new and fun creative experiences. Bring your bub and get to know other mummas, drink tea and free your mind for a couple of hours. Absolutely no skills required, you will literally be stepped through each project with care and templates!
What you get:
Tea and Coffee
Relaxed and safe atmosphere
Experienced workshop facilitator
If you have been looking for something a little different to the traditional Mums group, this is exactly where you need to be!
Week One: Black and White Sensory Board
A sensory board is made up of different textures and shapes in shades of black and white. Black and White because it is most engaging for baby due to the high contrast.
Week Two: Rainbow Sensory Mobile
This is a tactile mobile that is designed to be touched, grabbed and chewed! We show you how to introduce colour gradient through a rainbow ribbon hanging mobile that can be hung just above baby. This will develop concentration, coordination and sensory perception.
Week Three: Library Bag
Make a personalised tote bag for your baby (or yourself) with funkky fabric and felt. Trace the letters of a name, word or number in material of your choice and embellish with pom poms and 3d fabric paint. Create something memorbale for years to come!
Week Four: Teething Necklace
Babies need to chew in order to help their teeth push through. This sturdy and durable necklace is the perfect teething toy for your baby that is also a stylish accessory. We will teach you how to finger-knit some funky fabric yarn into a necklace before we attach some baby friendly silicone beads for good chewing measure!
Week Five: Pom Pom Wall hanging
Pom poms offer babies texture and depth that can help them to develop focus and concentration. You can decide on your colour scheme and mobile set-up to suit your taste. For really young babies, a black and white mobile is super beneficial for development and will encourage them to engage and focus.
Week Six: Sensory Bottles
They are like snow globes but way more fun! Create mini-worlds for your little one to discover...and all in a handy shake bottle. Choose three different themes to create inside a bottle. Including but not limited to; glitter gel, crazy buttons and i-spy alphabet. These crafty little sensory bottles allow your baby time to explore the contents whilst also developing motor skills through grasping, rolling and shaking. If you have a toddler or child who is eager to help, this is a great workshop to do together.
Why do these workshops exist?
Here are Mumma Got Skills, we hope to show parents that meaningful learning toys and experiences are so much more fulfilling when made by you! We also know what it's like to lose a sense of your identity as you busy yourself with the all consuming needs of your baby. We love our babies of course, but we also require the space to free our minds and busy our hands. That's why these workshops exist, to provide you with the chance to make something totally guilt free while your babies mingle.
