Picnic & Play is a version of Porridge & Play that takes place in outdoor or cultural venues, such as a museums, galleries and parks.
Rather than soup or porridge, we have a picnic meal, with the same delicious fruit and crunchy veg, cheese and hummus! Find out more about the food in the Lickety Kitchen!
The sessions take the same format as Porridge & Play – an hour of drama-led games, rhymes, songs and imaginary play for the whole family., followed by a delicious group meal. The session ends with Reflective Drawing and the Lickety Gallery, where everyone is invited to present their drawing and talk about what they thought about the session.
