Seisiún 6 Srainga Zip agus spraoí

The children’s places they had created for their toys had been displayed in the corridor in between sessions. We collected them, discussing how they might be put together to create a whole world, how they might be connected, and what might happen in between. In the empty library we spread them out and made the connecting roads, rivers and other spaces using fabric, string and other materials. Zip wire was the preferred mode of transport. As most people hadn’t got their toys we made simple stand in puppets which proved well able to play in the world and enact new adventures. Scealaí Bhéar visited and collected stories and was even invited onto the television that they made, where he interviewed some of the characters. The children were disappointed when it was time to disassemble the world, but they were delighted to take their places home at last.
