mini write sparks

Keep an eye out for announcements about upcoming Mini Write Sparks events at Moon Lane Books (SE23) to join us for a messy, creative Mark Making Workshop!
Suitable for 1-3 year olds (or thereabouts!) 

Mark making isn’t just scribbling!
Research has proven it is important for:
– Language and brain development
– Creative expression
– Taking the first steps towards writing

We’ll be using paints, chalks, toys, foam, crayons and so much more! It will be messy, creative fun- they’ll be learning without realising, but don’t come in your best clothes! Come along to support your child in their journey towards writing and towards starting school! 

Places on all of our courses are strictly limited
