Isis Ronan, also known as Succa Mum's new weekly art club for parents and children is off to a good start, building and decorating a castle made out of recycled materials.
The castle project is inspired by Mrs Ronan's experiences building cubby houses with her two year old son during COVID last year.
"I started building cubby houses with my son and that inspired me ... our favourite thing to do is make little toys out of recycling."
The theme is going to build, with next week promising to create knight and princess costumes to go with the castle.
While there has been good interest in the classes, Mrs Ronan is capping attendance at twelve per session in order to ensure she can personally engage with everyone there. This morning's session sold out quickly though, so she added an extra afternoon one to build on the work.
"It's really great - it's just great for the kids and hopefully it can be a permanent thing. It's nice to see them interacting with other kids they've never met. Creativity brings them together," said Alison Matthews, a parent at the afternoon session.
The class caters for the pre-kindergarten age range, providing different activities for different age ranges.
Mrs Ronan said "Our youngest was six months old and our oldest was six years old and they all enjoyed it ... under-one's did coloured cellophane windows for the castle so we can do different age levels."
