Once you have signed up HERE, we will post a FREE maker kit with resources to support making and play to your house.
Limited numbers available SIGN UP TODAY to get your pack in time for the start of the festival!

UPDATE: Many thanks to All of you who signed up!

The FREE kits have now all been claimed, but Play Book and list of the resources to play with us are available here

Check here again during the Festival of the Mind for the how-to videos!

The bits in the kit will help you to use things around your home, such as old cardboard or recycling to make costumes, props and models that you might want to include in your adventure and we will provide you with some videos to help you make some things that you might want to include in your adventure. It will also give you instructions on how to get started and give you access to our special online portal on Flipgrid.

Access to the ‘How To’ videos are via our online portal through an app called Flipgrid. You will have an opportunity to share what you are making using the portal. This is an exciting way for you and your children to share your adventures and also see what other families are getting up to.

In the meantime, start collecting old bits of card, old toys and other useful bits and bobs you could use in your adventure playtime.

Adventures in Sustainable Play has been organised by MakerFutures from the University of Sheffield as part of the Festival of the Mind. It is a FREE event for children and families in Sheffield.
