Maxi was lucky enough to be invited to a special storytelling workshop which as held at a local school on Friday. He had a funtastic time and we were invited to take him back for a morning of fun and activities on the Saturday. So we decided that Maxi and I would go and MadDad and Mini could go and have some one on one time at Football Tots together.
What a treat I was in for:
The event was run by a local school (one of the smallest in the area) for a number of the local schools and was specially designed for Reception children (4 and 5) year olds.
It was hosted by the divine Marina the Mermaid and Stony Fag the good pirate.
Maria told the children all about the council evicting her from her home in a cave at Saltburn by the sea, as she had lost her magic shell, which enabled her to sing.
The children helped Marina find her shell and get her home back in the end. It was brill a real interactive story.
On the Friday the children had all had all made fish and helped to decorate the school.
Maxi made another one on Saturday too (look out for a sea inspired Childrens Craft Showcase next month).
We then all went in to the underwater tunnel to hear Stony Fag tell us about how he met Marina and how he changed from a bad pirate in to a good one.
The event ended with the children and parents getting involved in the Hall in yet another story about how the seasons came about.
We had a fantastic morning, both me and Maxi. The event as brilliant and they even put on refreshments. The only down side as that only 20 children per year got to attend and as they are nearly 90 children in Maxi's year at school, children had to miss out.
We had a fantastic time.
