We have created a weekly meet-up where you can come together to make something unique and fun for your baby.

This 6 week group is a special time for you to come and get your hands busy with new and fun creative experiences. Bring your bub and get to know other mummas, drink tea and free your mind for a couple of hours.

Absolutely no skills required, you will literally be stepped through each project with care and templates!

Book your place here

What you get:

  • All materials
  • Barista Coffee (hot drink) and sweet treat delivered!
  • Relaxed and safe atmosphere
  • Qualified Teacher and experienced workshop facilitator

If you have been looking for something a little different to the traditional Mums group, this is exactly where you need to be! And don’t worry if you miss one, you can always make it up in the next 6 week cycle (See conditions below). Alternatively, if there are workshops you have already done but still want to be part of the regular meet, just let me know and I can alter some projects to suit you.

Week One: Black and White Sensory Board

A sensory board is made up of different textures and shapes in shades of black and white. Black and White because it is most engaging for baby due to the high contrast.

Week Two: Butterfly Mobile (Montessori education inspired)

The butterfly mobile is a learning tool to help your baby develop depth perception, focus and understanding of movement. As the butterflies dance in the breeze, you baby will be able to follow with their eyes. This important learning tool can hold your baby’s attention for up to 40 minutes at a time!

Week Three: Sensory Hoops Workshop

A sensory hoop is a tool used for encouraging babies to explore different materials to develop awareness and sensory perception. On a large hoop, you will be given access to many different materials that you can tie, sew, loop or knot in place.

Week Four: Teething Necklace

Babies need to chew in order to help their teeth push through. This sturdy and durable necklace is the perfect teething toy for your baby that is also a stylish accessory. We will teach you how to finger-knit some funky fabric yarn into a necklace before we attach some baby friendly silicone beads for good chewing measure!

Week Five: Pom Pom Mobile/ Wall hanging

Pom poms offer babies texture and depth that can help them to develop focus and concentration. You can decide on your colour scheme and mobile set-up to suit your taste. For really young babies, a black and white mobile is super beneficial for development and will encourage them to engage and focus.

Week Six: Sensory Bottles

They are like snow globes but way more fun! Create mini-worlds for your little one to discover…and all in a handy shake bottle. Choose three different themes to create inside a bottle. Including but not limited to; glitter gel, crazy buttons and i-spy alphabet. These crafty little sensory bottles allow your baby time to explore the contents whilst also developing motor skills through grasping, rolling and shaking. If you have a toddler or child who is eager to help, this is a great workshop to do together.

Why do these workshops exist?

Here are Mumma Got Skills, we hope to show parents that meaningful learning toys and experiences are so much more fulfilling when made by you! We also know what it’s like to lose a sense of your identity as you busy yourself with the all consuming needs of your baby. We love our babies of course, but we also require the space to free our minds and busy our hands. That’s why these workshops exist, to provide you with the chance to make something totally guilt free while your babies mingle.

Did you know that you are helping another Mum with your ticket purchase?

We put 10% of your ticket towards developing free and low cost workshop for parent’s with post natal anxiety and depression. We also provide workshops to pockets of the community that need it most.
