Following on from the ‘monster theme’, we ran a series of workshops that involved creating mythical monsters or fictional characters in a variety of ways ranging from mask making, sculptures and singing and movement workshops.
The kids created monster masks by decorating them with different materials. This workshop went really well with all the groups; some masks were not so monster like, but all were fantastic creations, looking bright and colourful and fit for a carnival!
The kids enjoyed putting their own unique touch to them and much photos were taken after of them posing with big beaming smiles.
We made the mistake of accidenlty bringing pots of glitter in our bags to one workshop and half way through the session we noticed (a little too late) the glitter was now smeared across faces, in hair, on clothes, on walls, up noses….but was worth it to see big cheerful grins!
