Library Workshops for Children

The ImaginationGYM® Workshop for Libraries is based around specially designed audio programs and activities which develop imagination, whole brain learning and multiple intelligence’s in children 5 years upwards.

The ImaginationGYM® workshop is a fun and interactive way to help children access their natural creativity, and artistic talent. It is themed around the first audio program in the series titled The Enchanted Forest. The Enchanted Forest audio program encourages children to create their own stories by bringing them on a journey into an imaginative world of folklore, nature, animals, music, dreams and wishes. Children will learn to stretch their imagination muscles and have fun taking positive action on creativity with art activity sheets.

These one-hour workshops are specially designed for groups of children aged 6-10 years with a maximum number of 15 children in each group. The workshop format can be arranged for children only or for children with their parents/ guardians. We have run them regularly as part of the Libraries Summer Programme, Book Festival  and Seachtain na Gaeilge since 2010 and they have proven very successful for the organizers.
