October 22 Half Term Holiday Care

Light and Sound Week

24-28 October 2022

We were delighted to run our first holiday care week 24-28 October 2022 based at Kidszone's new location at St Pauls CE Primary School, St Pauls Road, Withington. 

It was our 'Light and Sound' Week. The activities were:

  • Full day trip to the Science and Industry Museum via coach on Thurs 27 Oct where the Manchester Science Festival was taking place
  • Shadow Puppet theatre - make our own puppets and then we put on a show
  • Making our own sound instruments - using junk modelling
  • Creative art workshop on Tues 25 Oct we created a large scale artwork inspired by light and shade - working with artist Nate Frost
  • Invisible letter hunt - used torches to find the letters to make a word 
  • Light activated paper experiments with nature 
  • Lightwaves Festival art workshop - we created flowers out of recycled bottles and our work appeared as part of the festival at MediaCity 1-4 December!
  • Guess the everyday sound quiz
  • Sensory den - we explored with friends and played with the fun light and sound objects 
  • Glow in the dark Hama bead craft 
  • Plus there were light and sound themed team games outdoors to get everyone moving about whatever the weather!
