Making a Giant Popcorn Bowl with Is


Have you ever sat down to watch a movie, only to discover that your popcorn was in a bowl that was way too small?

Is decides that she is sick and tired of tiny snack portions, so she sets out to solve her popcorn problem by making a GIANT bowl out of clay!

You can follow along at home – all you need is some clay (email our front office if you would like us to send you some) and a few tools that you or your parents might have lying around at home (an old library card, a rolling pin, a barbequeue skewer or sharp cutting tool, some water, and a sponge).

Is will also show you how to decorate your clay bowl using leaves and other bits and pieces from your garden.

Rai’s Musical Moments: Rainy Day Rainstick


Do you enjoy the peacefulness of a rainy day? The sound of raindrops falling on a window or roof can be magically soothing…

In this episode, Rai takes the opportunity of a rainy day inside to show us how to make a rainstick.

You will need:
– 1 medium to long sized cardboard tube
– small nails and a hammer (plus the help of an adult for nailing them in!)
– paper, scissors, and tape
– small grains or seeds, for example popcorn kernals
– things to decorate your rainstick – colourful tape, paper, or coloured textas

We’d love to see your best rain dance once you’re finished!

Hannah’s Magic Potions


Make your own magic potion that causes your brother’s hair to fall out…. or gives the holder the ability to talk to animals… or summons a storm!

These pretty, glittery potions also make a great sensory tool for helping kids focus as they watch the glitter swirl around the coloured liquid.

What you will need:

  • Clean glass jars with lids (soaking an empty sauce jar in water + bicarb soda usually helps to remove any labels)
  • Paper, textas or pencils, tape, and ribbon – to create our own labels
  • Food dye (or natural alternative such as beetroot juice)
  • Magic potion ingredients like glitter, small beads, paper confetti, petals, leaves….
  • A drop or two of detergent
