Celebrating The Year of the Goat!

Calabash on the Move returns for Chinese New Year Celebrations for Primary Schools and Nurseries. It is not too late to book your session. A morning or afternoon of stories, music, dance and mask making in the Calabash Story Tent. See Calabash on the Move…….

Jane can also offer Calabash on the Move, a unique resource offering an introduction to culture and diversity for Early Years children, in a fun way. The focus of each session is a story tent with backcloths representing different cultures and countries. Simple folktales and traditional stories are told or acted out, using puppets and finger play. There is an opportunity for children to play with our range of multicultural toys, dressing up clothes, books and puppets as well as taking part in a related craft activity.
