Sunday playgroup

To maximise the fun this weekend at both Granton and 6VT playgroups, we will try 'loose parts play' and 'busy boards'. It is all about creative play with the strangest array of everyday objects put to new use as play things. It would be great if you could bring donations such as ribbons, string, cloths, hooks, door handles, lock with bolts, plugs,sockets,wheels, plastic bowls, pipes, kitchen utensils....anything that would be safe to play with.
