The Places You’ll Go Poetry (5-9yo)
Using the Dr Seuss classic Oh The Places You’ll Go, kids will get to enjoy the thrill of rhyming, onomatopoeia and word invention, while playing with the shape of their futures, and possibilities yet to be realised! A workshop for any sensitive souls, wild souls, or souls who simply have a taste for the wacky and the wonderful.
