Event description
A fantastic opportunity for Sheffield families to get involved in a mini adventure of making, adventure and play!

About this event

Adventures in Sustainable Play has been organised by MakerFutures from the University of Sheffield as part of the Festival of the Mind. It is a FREE event for children and families in Sheffield.

We want you and your family to have your own play adventure. We will send you a FREE maker kit with resources to support making and play. The bits in the kit will help you to use things around your home, such as old cardboard or recycling to make costumes, props and models that you might want to include in your adventure.

A Minecraft sword or a rocket to fly to the moon? A fancy light-up hat or a secret garden for your pet snail! It is your adventure, so you can do what you like. We will provide you with some videos to help you make some things that you might want to include in your adventure.

Access to the 'How To' videos are via our online portal through an app called Flipgrid. You will have an opportunity to share what you are making using the portal. This is an exciting way for you and your children to share your adventures and also see what other families are getting up to.

Once you have signed up here, we will post a FREE maker kit to your house, ready for the start of the festival. It will give you instructions on how to get started and give you access to our special online portal on Flipgrid.

In the meantime, start collecting old bits of card, old toys and other useful bits and bobs you could use in your adventure playtime.
