The women’s playgroup kicks off this Halloween with the ‘Which Witch Workshop’ (try saying that 6 times!) Come in fancy dress if you like, or get changed here into your best witchy glad-rags.
Date: Friday 28th October at 7pm – 9pm
Freebies: this month’s goodie bag includes a women’s playgroup journal
What are we making? this months crafty idea is making magic wands and brooms
The flow (ALL activities are optional – you can opt out & quietly do your own thing!)
Hellos – we will start in the fairy ring (basically a big circle of happy bum floor cushions but you can have a chair if your bum’s happy higher) Don’t worry quietlings, no one will be asked to introduce themselves, I will give everyone a sticky name tag (so you can just point to it if you are very nervous of public speaking and someone asks your name.) As the groups go on, we will all naturally get to know each other…
Party Games – we’ll be playing pass the parcel and maybe even musical statues!
Wordplay – we will come together to decorate a board on our theme of witches. You also have the opportunity to create stories/poems/plays about witches for our #WPGSundayShortStories and Women of the Wild anthology.
Crafty time – for those who want something different we have crafty time. This month is magic wands & broomsticks – the perfect way to set off your costume.
Don’t fancy either… there will be plenty of themed books to read, mindfulness colouring-in books to be enjoyed, or you can relax in our fairy den (naps are always lovely)
Goodbyes – we come together at 9pm to say our goodbyes, we will finish with the traditional send-off song, ‘in and out the fairy bluebells.’ which I will sing loudly and badly (all are welcome to join in to drown me out.)
If you would like to come, but have a worry, query, or special need stopping you please contact me (below) and I’ll see if I can make anything easier for you.
We aim to be an LGBT+ friendly group (if you have any questions about this please contact me below)
We aim to be an autism friendly group (if you have any questions, please get in touch below)
I would like to thank @Coppice_blueSCI for their support and @TPAction for my start up funding – follow them on twitter if you can!
