About Small Size Days

‘Small Size Days’ are presented by (Artistic International Association) Small Size, and are a part of the wider activity of the ‘Small Size, performing arts for early years’ project. Baboró is a member of this project since 2009 and is the only Irish partner in this 16-country, 18 partner project. ‘Small Size , performing arts for early years’ is supported by the European Commission’s Creative Europe project, which supports artistic productions for children aged 0 to 6, and the cultural rights of young children to access the Creative

My Creative Work With Schools

Specialising in working with junior and 1st class children, I take young students and their parents on an exciting creative journey that aids the child’s early learning and development, through creative sensory explorations, and activities that complement the School’s Aistear Framework.

Through interesting indoor and outdoor arts experiences we actively explore, work independently and take on exciting group art projects, where language development and addressing equality and diversity are key.

My schools programmes facilitate parental engagement where possible, encouraging and empowering parents to regularly engage in, and value creative play and art with their young children.

To discuss the possibility of a bespoke programme or workshop for your school contact me.

Giant Foam Hands for Mini Football Fans! Kids craft step by step. Jane Hayes Creative

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 1 piece of A3 coloured card
  • Stapler
  • Scissors
  • 1 sheet of coloured tissue paper
  • Paper glue, like my all time favorite Pritt Stick

HOW TO

  1. Curve the card into a cone shape, leaving a gap at the smaller end, big enough to get the stapler inside
  2. Secure the shape by stapling it in as many places as possible
  3. Using the scissors, trim the excess card at both ends and along the side to create an even cone shape
  4. Now to make a tissue paper fringe, cut a strip of tissue long enough to wrap around the large end of the cone, and about 10cm wide
  5. Fold the strip of tissue a number of times, then using the scissors cut from the open edge (not the folded edge) into the center of the paper at even intervals
  6. Apply glue around the outside of the large end of the card cone
  7. Unfold the tissue paper, and stick the uncut side the edge to the glued card, leave the fringe to hang over the edge.
  8. For a fuller look, make a second(or more) fringe and stick it on top of the previous one
  9. Now give us a big shout out from your super fun megaphone!

Giant Foam Hands for Mini Football Fans! Kids craft step by step. Jane Hayes Creative

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Free printable hand template
  • 3 pieces of A4, thin foam sheets in your team’s colours: 2 in one colour, 1 in another  (or card will do fine too)
  • Scissors
  • Ball-point pen
  • Craft glue/ glue gun for hot glue (parent super vision needed)

HOW TO

  1. Print your free printable hand template and cut it out

  3. Place the template on a 2nd piece of foam, ‘x’ facing down, and trace around it
  4. Now cut both shapes out carefully
  5. To hide any pen marks, prepare to stick them back to back with pen-marked sides facing in, towards each other

  8. Cut out extra symbols or letters from the 2nd colour foam, and stick it to the front of the hand for extra decoration
