Emma's Crafty Kids

Creative family fun for festivals, events and schools

Emma's Crafty Kids aims to -

1. Encourage children and young people to engage in creative play for fun.

2. Encourage children and young people to use their imaginations and to learn

    through play.

3. Promote the development of creative, musical and social skills by engaging

    children and their families together.

4. Promote the use of child friendly recycled materials in crafting and making

    outdoor equipment in order to encourage less disposal of waste into landfill sites,

    wherever safe and appropriate to do so.

5. Incorporate the principles of Every Child Matters into activities.

6. Protect children, young people and their families from harm by following and

   adhering to safeguarding, data protection, human rights and equality legislation.

So, who is Emma?

I am a mum, a wife, a tutor, and a musician with a local Morris side.  I used to work, and teach, in health and social care.  When I am not running Emma's Crafty Kids activities, I decorate and sell ceramic tile coasters and wall hangings.

My passion for creating space for families to play together, comes from having 2 inquisitive children of my own (who always wanted to be doing something) and being a working mum. It can, as most families know, be quite tricky to find time to do things together, so by developing Emma's Crafty Kids I hoped to provide space for families to try different crafts, play and be active together.

The Emma's Crafty Kids team usually consists of family members and friends, who are enthusiastic about giving children, young people, their families and carers the opportunity to use their imaginations and make things - just for fun!  We will always welcome you with a smile and have lots of crafty activities for you to have a go at.

I also visit schools to lead themed workshops and activities that pupils might not ordinarily try out at school or at home.  This can involve working with classes to create individual artwork, or with the whole school to create huge murals.

Emma's Crafty Kids has full Public Liability Insurance.  Emma has a current enhanced DBS check.

Hopefully, we'll see you very soon.
