Following on from the successful ‘Fine Motor Skills workshop’ I am delighted to announce that I will be holding a ‘Sense and Stories’ workshop for children aged 2 1/2  – 4 (with an adult).

These workshops involve a range of ‘messy play’ and fine motor activities and some craft activities that children can explore at their own pace.  There is also a playroom that children can choose to use.  After playing we will come together to share a story and some songs.

The first workshop will have a Christmas theme and takes place on Saturday 24th November from 9.30 – 11am.  It costs 30chf per child and the first workshop includes a Christmas goodie bag.  It will be held at Puzzles Centre in Gattikon (just behind Lidl).

A flyer is available here.

There are still spaces available at the Spooky Times Read, Rhyme, Craft workshops which will be held twice.

Each workshop runs from 9 – 11.45 and costs 50chf per child.  It is suitable for children aged 4 – 7.

On Saturday 27th October it will be held at Children First, Freiestrasse 175, Zurich.

On Saturday 3rd November it will be held at McTots, Zipfelweg 10, Adliswil.

More details about Read, Rhyme, Craft can be found here and photos of previous workshops can be found here.

Many thanks to all the children and parents who attended the two workshops on Saturday.  It was an extremely busy day but very enjoyable.

The fine motor skills activity morning was indeed very active with the children trying most of the twenty activities which were on offer.  It also gave me a valuable opportunity to talk with parents about what sort of workshops they would like to see in the future and I have a number of different ideas to investigate now.

The talking and listening games workshop in the afternoon provided many laughs, especially when the children competed in two teams to build the highest tower out of marshmallows and cocktail sticks (which is a lot harder than it sounds).  It was very rewarding to see the group’s confidence grow as the afternoon went on and the quality and detail of the discussions and instructions certainly improved with each task.

I will update the gallery this evening with photographs from the weekend and then there is a few weeks rest until the next workshop (Read, Rhyme, Craft – Spooky Times).


I know that getting your child to hold their pencil correctly is an issue which comes up frequently so I wanted to share this wonderful blog post from Mama OT.

I hope this gives you some ideas to try with your child.
