“The community picnic with everyone was lovely! Quality ‘playing time’ with my child – remembering how to play. ”

Picnic & Play Spring 2020

16th January 2020

The Spring 2020 Picnic & Play Programme is here! With sessions at the Dream Machine,
Hidden Gardens, Museum of Scotland and more, we can’t wait to see you for imaginary play
and exploration in some of the most exciting arts and culture venues in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

FULL PROGRAMME BELOW!

Picnic & Play sessions bring families in Licketyspit’s Children & Families Network (CFN) together
to play the popular, familiar Lickety Playcard games, rhymes, songs and dressing up, share a delicious,
healthy picnic and do reflective drawing.

Families will meet a member of staff at the venue who will tell them about the opportunities there, invite them to explore the venue after the session, feel at home – and come back soon!
