Grimm and Gruffalo Workshop Trio

This summer I worked with children at a local CIC Charity to run three workshops based on ‘The Gruffalo’ and Grimms’ fairytales. All the young people had some form of learning disability and we had great fun working together. In our retelling of Julia Donaldson’s ‘Gruffalo’ we walked like scary Gruffalos and tiny little mice. We made footsteps and we roared.

In Rumplestiltskin we travelled the world making up silly names and danced just like Rumplestiltskin. In Jack and the Beanstalk we climbed up high and ran from giants. 

All this with a bit of percussion, some props and a bit of makkaton!

It Took a While to Cajon!

I’m very pleased to announce that I now have a cajon drum to use for storytelling. If you have not come across a cajon before you are in for a treat- it is a sturdy wooden box which makes different sounds when hit. They are fantastic for working with children and disability groups as they are very strong with no delicate or moving parts. The cajon has been very popular during sessions and it is very useful for creating the sound of approaching giants and dragons!
