Wild animals at the Nursery

We had a wild start to 2024 with a project designing making woodland animals with the kids from Old Doune Road Nursery.

Over a three week project the children researched the wildlife you might find in the woods then designed wooden animals to put high and low around the outdoor play area of the nursery.

The Makerspace devised a simple lesson plan that helped the children understand the manufacturing process through simple exercises, giving them full control of the design process from end to end (with a bit of help pushing the right buttons).

We had almost as much fun as the children and hope to do more projects like this though the year, if you are involved with a children’s group of any age group and are interested in running a project with us get in touch at makerspace@creativedunblane
