Hello, and welcome to the
Lickety Activity Films series!

In our imaginations, we can go anywhere, be anyone and do anything… so being stuck at home wasn’t going to stop us from having some fantastic new experiences! 

Beginning as a response to the lockdown, our Lickety Activity Films are a series in which three talented Licketyspit actor-pedagogues – Taz, Jack and Iona -guide you through a follow-along activity, or on a virtual adventure. With each video, you and your family can join in at home – and use it as an inspiration to guide your own creative activities and adventures for the rest of the week.

The Activity videos have also inspired children & parents to make their own – look for the Over to You section of each series to see photos and videos of what families have been cooking, making and exploring at home!

with Taz

In Cooking with Taz, Taz dons her apron and gets cooking! Whether it’s wholesome lentil soup or zingy lemonade, every recipe will be suitable for children to help with, simple to follow, and require few ingredients. It’s a great way for children to become more interested in food, cooking and nutrition, as well as a fun activity to do as a family.

with Jack

In Exploring with Jack, Jack takes out his Magic Map and goes exploring, travelling across the world to new and exciting places. From Paris to the Bolivian rainforest, it’s amazing what you can experience without leaving your front room! All you need is your own Magic Map and your imagination – and afterwards, perhaps a journal to write about or draw all the incredible things you’ve seen.

with Iona

In Making with Iona, Iona shows us just how much fun we can have making at home. Each week, she picks an easy arts and crafts activity that can be done using easy-to-find things from around your house, such as socks, and a few other things such as crayons or paper. When we unlock our imaginations and think creatively, just think what other household objects we could transform into something entirely new!
