What is Storyplay for the Planet?
A series of Storyplay & Have Your Say Through Play sessions for families with 3-12 year olds in East Centre Ward.
Licketyspit will deliver sessions in schools, nurseries and online for communities across the East Centre Ward to support confidence, parental engagement, relationships and children’s rights.
The school groups will receive an introductory Storyplay session, followed by a Have your Say Through Play session to support the children to express their thoughts, feelings & ideas about Climate Change using imaginary play.
These sessions will be a chance for families to explore the issue of climate change and share their feelings about it creatively, elevating children’s voices and demonstrating the power of imagination to find solutions to the greatest collective challenge of our time!
We might encounter melting polar ice, or deforestation in Brazil, put a stop to heavy traffic in Cranhill or plant trees in Barlanark. The adventure will present challenges and as a group we’ll overcome them using the power of our collective imagination!
We might end up in a river clogged with rubbish, or slipping on melting polar ice…What will we do to stop it?!
A book of stories…
We will also be holding 4 Storyplay Café sessions online, where families can help us make the stories from our Storyplay adventures into a book!
We’re have a book launch which will include Storyplay games and a Lickety Gallery, for all participating groups. Children and parents/carers who develop the book will be supported to host the launch as Storyplay Champions. WATCH THIS SPACE!
How do I take part?
If your school or nursery is keen to host a session, please ask them to get in touch!
We also have some online play sessions for families across the ward to take part in. The first one is on Friday 19th November at 4.30-6pm, on Zoom.

We will be advertising the book creation cafes to participants at our school, nursery and online sessions.
