Every week the families at Auburn Diversity Services are revisiting popular nursery rhymes and transforming them with their personal expression through the Auburn Twinkles program, part of ICE’s Family Creative Hub.
The last few weeks they added a touch of twinkle to the stars, revamping the traditional yellow school bus and welcomed a new Spring with big smiles. The kids are super excited about seeing facilitators Nisha and Marian every week.
After story time and singing a few rhymes the group tackles a new activity. The mums are always there to lend a helping hand. There is nothing more enjoyable than getting messy while re-experiencing your childhood crafts (especially without having to clean up your whole house afterwards ; )
After the families finish creating the images, they’ll digitally pull them together into their very own nursery rhyme picture book.
