Storytelling is a wonderful way to bond with your child and to share some time telling each other stories. This interactive and participative workshop guides both parent and child through simple, repeatable storytelling techniques that can be replicated during the workshop as well as at home. A special focus of this workshop will be the integration of old family photographs in your storytelling.

Areas Covered:

The workshop will expose you to a variety of easy to learn stories that you can either tell as they are or adapt to suit your child. There will be simple craft activities to help you remember and recall the story and take home as a memento of your time spent bonding with your child.
