Porridge & Play Cranhill

Welcome to the Porridge & Play Cranhill Hub!

Porridge & Play Cranhill is a New Scots Integration Project designed to bring children & their families together through the power of Storyplay! With the help of our partners, our Storyplay Champions and the families we work, we are creating a vibrant, friendly hub that gives our children & families a loving and safe community.

‘The best is time together, we enjoy all games and very nice company.’

Since February 2022, we have gotten to know the wonderful children & families of Cranhill! We started off with a six week block of Porridge & Play which was hosted alongside our lovely partners at  Cranhill Development Trust! Effie, Andre, Rhianne & Ruby had so much fun playing and getting to know each and everyone of our amazing families. We also worked alongside our amazing Storyplay Champion Josephine from Bellrock Nursery who is a real champion of play!

Beauty, Mum

‘Porridge & Play is very important because it helps children to build confidence and self esteem.’

At the end of May, we started our second block of sessions known as Picnic & Play! These exciting trips let us Storyplay all over Glasgow and even venture outside the city! We went to Tollcross Park, The Science Centre, the Riverside Museum, The Sensory Hub and the Kirkintilloch Stables (canal boats!) It’s so important to explore the wonderful free cultural activities on offer, and doing so as part of our lovely group helps us bond, connect and know these spaces belong to all of us! Families bring food to share, letting us explore lots of different cultures through really yummy flavours, and we play our favourite Storyplay games in some of our new favourite places.

‘The best thing is that we played!’

For block three we will be back at CDT creating exciting new Licketyspit Playcards – Cranhill style! At Licketyspit we believe that we all need what children need! And what better way to showcase that by remembering our favourite childhood games with our children – and even inventing some new ones. We can’t wait for the next block and seeing what you all come up with.

Porridge & Play Cranhill will also be at our day-long STORYPLAY FESTIVAL on Saturday 3rd September at Glasgow Green.

If you would like to join us at the Cranhill Hub, please contact Rhianne (WhatsApp +44 7869 342652) to join our Children & Families Network and she will let you know when we have space at the Hub for your family.
