Play Packs

Together with our partners we’re putting together packs to help you get the whole family creative at home, every month.

Issue #5

Inside out

This month you’ll be helping the stories hiding inside your head find their way out. You’ll create new characters and tell tall tales with shadow puppets, filpbooks and thaumatropes all powered by your imagination with a little help from the activity sheets and bits and pieces inside the pack.

This special edition of Culture Mile’s Play Pack series invites you to explore the magic of storytelling as part of Leytonstone Loves Film, a celebration of stories that help us feel connected. We’re hosting watch parties, holding filmmaking workshops and exploring new ways to experience the magic of the movies. Discover more
at www.leytonstonelovesfilm.com

We would love to see what you create with the pack, you can get in touch with pictures, ideas and stories at info@culturemile.london, on Instagram and Twitter @CultureMileLDN and don’t forget to use #leytonstonelovesfilm to share all your storytelling masterpieces.

Summer holiday adventures

This pack is all about outdoor and indoor summer holiday adventures! There are fun ideas and activities to help you explore your neighbourhood again with family and friends, as well as lots to do by yourself, or if you can’t go out much. Whatever you do this summer, we hope you have a great time!

We would like to say a big thank you to Hanover Primary School and their team of Junior Editors who have helped to make this pack, road testing all the activities, and creating their own suggestions for fun stuff you can do this holiday.

We would love to see what you make with your pack! You can get in touch with your pictures and ideas online at info@culturemile.london, on Instagram & Twitter at @CultureMileLDN or #culturemile. And don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter to stay in touch!
