Story + Craft
Dino Acconci and I developed a programme to combine music and craft. We drew inspiration from the classic greek fables of Aesop.
Aesop’s Fables famous collection of tales like “The Tortoise and the Hare” and “The Lion and the Mouse” in which animals interact like humans would and lessons are revealed at the end that aim to teach readers something about life. A good way to convey moral meaning to children because they are simple in nature and can be easily digested.
Dino Acconci - a professional song writer and singer - is trained in live performance. He has written 5 whimsical and fantastic songs inspired by Aesop’s Fables, the music accompaniment would liven up the story telling. So he will play some guitar as he reads.
After the storytelling and singing, Children and I will create a craft using egg carton, cardboard and all kinds of recyclable materials. Children love to do crafts. Using recycled objects to make crafts is a fun way to teach kids about the benefits of recycling.
Story + Craft has stimulated children's imagination through meaningful stories, songs and crafts.
