The following page links provide families with some fun ideas, activities and inspiration during the periods of time spent at home during the months of the COVID19 Epidemic.

They are not specific to a particular type of educational need but are holistic, can be adapted to meet sensory requirements and are activities that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

The Idea Machine Story Time Session

Three times per week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4pm GMT an exciting and fun story time session takes place on FACEBOOK. It is a LIVE SHOW here is the link  to like and follow the Positive Eye Idea Machine Facebook Page.

Families, children, parents and educators are all welcome to join.

The format of the SHOW is LIVE. Gwyn leads an exciting story time, dressing up and performing the adventures of Marvin! There is lots of interaction throughout and funny voices too. Then Gwyn makes an activity or a craft to go with the story chapter. You can all have a go at making these ideas, she is inspiring and enthusiastic and has lots of positive energy !

Gwyn then celebrates all the children who have sent photographs of their craft makes in at SUPER STAR TIME and we celebrate BIRTHDAYS with lovely BIRTHDAY SHOUT OUTS TIME! If you miss the LIVE shows or you don’t have FACEBOOK the shows are available in the links at the very bottom of this page. Click on the photos of Gwyn dressed up as the different characters to access the latest story sessions. On each link there are photos and activity sheets to accompany each story.
