Art Room Paper Links Project

Art Room Paper Links Project

Many keyworker families have been under strain during the pandemic.

This project provides creative ways for primary-age children of key workers, including NHS people to celebrate, reflect on, and strengthen their connections with loved ones. It aims to give them space to connect with each other and take stock of what they are grateful for.

The video is suitable for families with children up to 6 years old, and the downloadable pack is suitable for families with children up to 12 years old.
