Fridays are LicketyMums time!
We gather to hang out, play, reconnect with our body and mind and to share our news of the week.
LicketyMums sessions were first created because lots of Licketyspit Mums asked us for them.
Many mums support their children to enjoy Storyplay and generally put their children’s needs first. Mums are very eloquent about the positive impact of Storyplay on their children’s confidence, social skills, language development and happiness. They know that these are positive things we all need!
Licketypit families know they get all that from playing and socialising together like we do in our Storyplay and Porridge & Play sessions.
So it made perfect sense to have LicketyMums sessions that are also about sisterhood, feeling connected to each other, supporting each other and sharing knowledge, experience and ideas!
We always start with a dance!
We all have busy lives and dancing is a phenomenal way to release stress and helps increasing serotonin, or as I call it ‘the happiness hormone’ and it’s great fun too.
A good boogie even in your kitchen can do wonders for your mental and physical health!
During our Check In many times there’s a lot of ‘busy and stressful’ answers but we also share glowing celebrations of every day life achievements and cheeriness about what the future may bring.
During Check In we also share tips and advice, from self-care techniques to where to go in Glasgow to learn how to ride a bike!
As part of reconnecting with our bodies and being present in the moment we Warm Up in various different ways. We sometimes do our Storyplay warm up rhymes ‘Big As A Bear’ or ‘Thin As A Pin’. Other times we practice Body Part Isolations which allow us to dedicate time to different parts of our body and acknowledge any sensations we may have.
