The creators of Craftercise, Aleisha and Amanda are both mums, qualified and experienced primary and secondary health and physical education teachers with a passion for creativity and play-based learning.
They have four university degrees between them, including a Masters in Health and Physical Education and PhD in Children’s Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour in family settings. Everything they do is underpinned by the latest international evidence in child development, best practice and a commitment to quality and safety. Becoming mums inspired the development of Craftercise – by sharing in the joy and excitement of their children experiencing messy art and craft, sensory play, movement to music and physical activity at home in conjunction with their professions.
From mid-year 2021, Aleisha and Amanda have transformed Craftercise into a new sensory adventure gym concept. Their love of creating immersive play spaces and adventures will continue with this new, more sustainable format.
Our mission is to immerse children in a sensory adventure through the provision of stimulating play/learning environments and resources, which aim to empower and inspire their creativity, play and learning.
JOIN OUR SENSORY ADVENTURE GYM
Our sensory adventure gyms are designed to provide pre-school children with a stimulating learning environment through active movement and play opportunities, therefore enhancing their physical, intellectual, social and emotional development.
Each session incorporates learning activities to develop physical literacy, which can be defined as moving with confidence and competence in a wide variety of activities and environments (indoors, outdoors, sand) that develop the whole person. Children who develop the competence and confidence to move are more likely to be active for life.
You can find further information through the link below about the benefits of our adventure gym sessions, along with the age groups they suit.
The River Kit is made up of a wonderful combination of natural, upcycled and man-made materials. Coloured rice can be dug up, scooped into objects, frog and turtle figurines can be manipulated by little hands and made into a story as they navigate the various textures, objects and materials. Our sensory kits are designed to be used over and over and can be reset to look new each time they're used. The base has been carefully considered so that there is no mixing of different bases that you can never separate again.
