Bird Box : creative resource

Bird Box is a creative resource, designed to support children in nurseries and sgoil araich.  We were very disappointed not to be able to run a pre-school arts event at An Lanntair in May, which was to have been on the theme of birds.  Bird Box offers an inspiring alternative for these challenging COVID-19 times, when we are still unable to engage with early years settings face to face.

Bird Box comprises five English language story books on the theme of birds, together with art materials, hand-held percussion instruments and an attractive collection of puppets and other visual aids.  There are suggestions for songs, rhymes, movement games and art activities to accompany each book, (available in English or Gaelic) with full explanatory notes and videos for the teachers to aid delivery.  Bird Box also includes films of the stories told in Gaelic by Dorothy Kennedy, and an introductory film featuring her hens, filmed by CNES Multi-Media unit.

Bird Box is available FREE to Nurseries and Sgoil Araich in Lewis and Harris.  Nursery Managers can request the resource for their group by emailing
