Out and About: Creative Explores Activity Pack

'Take a wandering walk around Balsall Heath - what patterns can you make on a map to trace your route?'

'What's the strongest smell or strangest sound you can find?'
'What would a local tree say to its neighbours if it could speak?'

Our new 'Out & About' Creative Explorers Activity Packs will get each lucky owner out of the house and creatively exploring the streets and sights of their local neighbourhood in new and exciting ways. The packs have been produced especially for children and young people in Balsall Heath to get active, make their mark and spark curiosity about how we interact with our physical environment.


Each pack contains:
- a 12 page booklet containing 6 fun and simple activities that you can do by yourself or with family or friends - Colouring Concrete, Making 'Friends', Tree Wrapping, Walking Map Patterns, Happy Hunting & Colouring In Community Spaces.
- Materials you'll need for activities (chalk, crayons, gift tag, wool and stickers).

You can pick up a pack for only £3 by visiting The GAP/The MIX Cafe during our opening times (10am - 6pm, Monday - Saturday). Stock is limited so come by soon to not miss out!
