My name is donna and I run a group at Pelton Community Cente called culture for kids!
Culture for Kids is a new and innovative group allowing children aged 0-5 to explore their own and world cultures. They enjoy crafts, games and activities whilst learning about our world. The motivation for founding this group was to make heritage fun and to gain better insight into how 0-5s can interact with heritage.
Our blog can be found at Culture for Kids Blog where you can see all the activities we do every week.
We have a lovely group of mini-explorers who attend with their parents every week and now I am hoping to get the kids outside the room where we hold the session and go on explorations around the village where there is lots of heriage for them to explore, mining heritage and so on. I also want to take them on field trips to local heritage sites.
I would like to equip them for this with 'mini'explorer packs'. these will be small backpacks containing a torch, binoculars, a magnifying glass and notebooks and pens for drawing pictures of what they have seen.
I estimate it will cost £270 to create 20 mini-explorer packs. These packs will greatly improve the childs interation with heritage in culture, making it fun!
