Magic Box sessions are fun, interactive story sessions where kids help Lottie, a professional actor, create and tell a story, using the odd things she finds in her Magic Box.
Children follow a character into a themed adventure where they can role-play, move around the imaginary space - and sing songs! Each session involves listening, speaking and spatial awareness, and helps children understand simple instructions in a structured, yet fluid, environment.
The age range included in each session means kids of different ages take away different experiences from the session. The younger kids enjoy the actions, copying, singing, pretending - and the older ones enjoy these elements too, but also feel confident in contributing to the story.
Adults are encouraged to join in with their children, giving the kids confidence to explore the story and a chance for everyone to have fun and 'pretend' together.
Come along and try a session (all our sessions are drop-ins). Open the Magic Box...and play!
