COLOUR CALM FOR ADULTS
Colouring for adults is extremely therapeutic and reduces stress. Some research suggests that it has the same benefits as meditation. We provide all the materials, the pencils and colouring sheets so if you need a ‘time out’ come along to Gainsborough Library on a Tuesday morning between 9.00am and 12.00pm. Colouring isn’t just for kids!”
Join us for Messy Play every Friday morning 10.30am – 11.00am. Messy Play plays an important part in early education. As well as being lots of fun it helps young children learn and develop a variety of skills. They can enjoy being creative and they can play and interact with other children. We’ve introduced these free weekly sessions especially for pre-school children. It’s good for parents too as they get the chance to be messy and creative as well!
