Wellbeing Through Colour

2.30 pm to 4.00 pm

Taking place as part of the A Better Start Southend Festival of Conversations taking place across Southend from 12-26 October for families with children up to 4-years-old, and early years’ professionals.

Our ‘Wellbeing through colour’ event will engage children and families in exploring basic emotions, through colourful, creative crafts and sensory experiences. This weekend’s drop-in event will have free-flowing activities.

As you travel around the colour forest trail, you’ll meet our friendly emotion monsters. Each monster will have information about that emotion, and how we can healthily explore it. Alongside this will be a craft/activity to enjoy. Our yellow monster is bringing sun catchers to make and take home, our green monster watches over the sensory calm space and our orange monster will help you to make your own worry monster. The blue zone is a colour-based sensory space, with find-and-seek activities and our red cross monster has brought in his little calm-down home with surprising tricks inside!

Take pictures of our colourful spaces or go in search of the kindness corner for reading, lots of positive words and take away helpful information.

This session is open to all Southend families with children under 4 years old with no need to register, just come along and enjoy the fun!

Accessible parking, toilet and baby changing facilities are available.

Please note all Festival of Conversations may have a photographer and videographer present to capture the session. There will be an option to opt out of any media consent upon arrival at the session.
