About The Event

A craft workshop for parents to make something sensory and educational for their baby.

Suitable for babies 0-12months, this is a hands-on workshop where you will be given all the necessary materials and support to create a sensory hoop for your baby.

What is it?

The butterfly mobile is a learning tool to help your baby develop depth perception, focus and understanding of movement. As the butterflies dance in the breeze, you baby will be able to follow with their eyes. This important learning tool can hold your baby's attention for up to 40 minutes at a time!

What is Montessori?

Montessori is a style of education invented by Maria Montessori in 1907. She was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator who studied the way children learn by observing their behaviours. Her method promotes independence in children as we give them specific 'real world' tools to aid their development. For more information, here is short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcIX6SIaoHE

How do you use it?

The butterfly mobile should be hung in the 'prepared environment' : This is a space that is separate to the sleeping area. It should be in a room that you use often and is communal. A baby likes to feel part of the family from the very beginning and will be more relaxed in such a space. Hang mobiles above a floor mattress (one at a time) so they are 30cm away from baby’s face.

Where do we meet?

The workshop is held at a private residence with plenty of couches, a change room and places to feed your baby. We are super casual, you can come and go as you please and attend to bub's needs.

What do you get?

All materials, experienced facilitator, tea and cake.

What do you bring?

Yourself

Bub (optional)

Why does the workshop exist?

Here are Mumma Got Skills, we hope to show parents that meaningful learning toys and experiences are so much more fulfilling when made by you! We also know what it's like to lose a sense of your identity as you busy yourself with the all consuming needs of your baby. We love our babies of course, but we also require the space to free our minds and busy our hands. That's why these workshops exist, to provide you with the chance to make something totally guilt free while your babies mingle.
