Bags of Creativity: all activities and ages

Over the summer of 2020, eight Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs) delivered Bags of Creativity, jam-packed with materials and activity postcards, to 9000 children. Each LCEP chose 20 postcards per bag to ensure a spread of artforms and materials for all three age groups (2-6, 7-11 and 12-16).

The brilliantly prolific Bags of Creativity artists produced more postcards than LCEPs could fit into the bags. We want all the activities that the artists produced to be available to as many people as possible. We are very happy to share the designs that were delivered to children, alongside some additional activities, here. Why not try them out and share your creations on social media #BagsOfCreativity.
