What’s an ‘Adventure Plan’?
A simple set of instructions telling you how exactly how to go on our adventures and play our games. Every game takes place in a different imaginary world, in the jungle or space, at the farm or on the bottom of the ocean for example, and our easy-to-follow Adventure Plans will guide you every step of the way.
How long does each adventure last?
Each adventure is designed to last around 20 mins but let your child lead the way. Everyone is different so some children may want to spend longer playing and for others, 10 – 15 minutes will be just right.
What’s the recommended number of children?
Play at home with one or two children, or at nursery or school with thirty! Space permitting you can take large or small groups of children on our adventures, and even a single child will benefit from playing with their favourite adult!
What topics are covered?
We’re always writing new adventures but currently, you will find Adventure Plans inspired by the following topics or themes:
All About Me, Animals, Being Different, Being Healthy, Celebrations and Festivals, Emotions, Friends and Family, The Great Outdoors, Magic, Mythical Creatures, Numbers, People Who Help Us, Pirates, School, Space, Transport, Water, Seasons & Weather…
And because we’re always writing new adventures, we’re also always covering new topics!
What’s the support group?
You’ll automatically be added to our online support group when you sign up and where you can chat with other parents and educators of preschool children. Ask questions, share ideas, seek support, and get inspired! Once subscribed, and after you’ve watched the training videos, head over to ‘Groups’ where you’ll find the Dip into Drama support group, as well as your resources.
Do I have to be ‘good at’ drama?
If you can pull a funny face and make a child laugh, or put on different voices when reading a story, you already are good at drama!
