This successful kit has been made for Eureka
Children's Museum in Halifax, to extend children’s
creative experiences in the Sound Garden and Desert area. Rebecca
Johnson, Early years learning advisor writes:
‘At Eureka we have two galleries designed for children 0 - 5 which provide a range of multi-sensory experiences, however we wanted to help bring these galleries to life, encouraging creative play and the use of imagination. Having worked with
the team before we were confident that their puppets would create a trigger and focus for this play - though we wanted more than just puppets and commissioned a range of bespoke play boxes.
We wanted to tap in to children's innate curiosity about the world around them, to be intrinsically motivated . What better way than to engage in creative play, most importantly we did not want to focus on an end product but to leave the children to be free to explore all sorts of possibilities.
Professionals are also offered
training by skilled Imaginary Leaps theatre play artists to develop storytelling and puppetry skills emphasizing creative participation and
facilitation for the very young and their families.
Cost of commissions subject to
consultation with full design brief and development. Imaginary
closely alongside with their clients to deliver effective
creative learning tools.
