Children discovering the arts means having a go themselves. They need to take part in at least two different kinds of art. This could be things they do already or something new. They could take the chance to teach you something they’re already good at, or you could learn a new skill together. Why not make up a dance, write a song, create a poem, illustrate a story or make models from packaging and other ‘junk’ materials?

What do you think the atmosphere is like when at a concert or the theatre, the difference in effects, smells, lighting etc
