Our bumper summer of children’s events kicked off on Monday, when the Early Years and Families Team from Tate Britain visited Pimlico Library to entertain the under fives’ group and their grown-ups. These events for pre-school children, called ‘Big and Small’, are designed to encourage interaction between parents/carers and their children, foster imagination and creativity and bring gallery experiences to new audiences.
The toddlers had great fun exploring mazes, building structures out of boxes and re-designing the space using pegs to clip the materials into different shapes. Young children enjoyed the different textures of corrugated cardboard, smooth boxes and rustle-y tissue paper.
If you think this looks like fun, there is another ‘Big and Small’ event on Friday at the Tate.
