Stuck for ideas? Then get creative...Enter the world of fashion, media or interior design...Create your own circus..."Cool Creations" offers a range of exciting ideas chosen to reflect the diverse and often contradictory needs of the 10-14 age group. Most form a framework on which to build according to the interest, imagination and ability of those taking part. The book has been written so that adults can develop the activities with young people or young people can use the book for ideas to develop themselves. All the activities have been successfully tried and tested with young people aged 10-14 in various settings and we have found that the activities often open young people's imaginations to develop and expand these ideas further in their own way. The activities in "Cool Creations": are fun; mostly require minimal planning and preparation; are fully illustrated; describe what you need, how you can do it and where it can lead; contain practical tips and flag health and safety points; provide opportunities for young people to develop, play and learn at their own pace; include 'snapshots' of how other groups have experienced the activity; and include 'spotlights' to support adults in thinking about their approach to working with young people in a play or childcare setting. This book is part of the "Can Do Series", an essential resource for all those who work with children from birth to 14 years in out of school settings including: childcare centres; drop-in centres; after-school clubs; playschemes or playbuses; play centres; family centres; and in the home. Whether you are a childminder, playworker, family centre worker, day nursery assistant or manager you will find a rich source of ideas to help you create opportunities for play which are fun, inclusive and affordable.
