Pi­rate party for chil­dren

North Coast Times - - FRONT PAGE -

SWASH­BUCK­LING pi­rates will com­man­deer the Sprout Hub in Alki­mos this Satur­day for the launch of a busi­ness.

Pyjama Drama North West Perth will launch on Septem­ber 23 with a pi­rate party for chil­dren aged up to seven.

Fran­chise man­ager Eleanor Mul­der, of Tap­ping, said the event would in­clude two in­ter­ac­tive pi­rate shows where chil­dren can learn to talk like pi­rates, sail the seven seas, have fun with jun­gle an­i­mals and find buried trea­sure.

“There’s no need to reg­is­ter – com­mu­nity mem­bers can turn up on the day for the fam­ily fun, which also in­cludes a Pyjama Drama ses­sion for baby pi­rates up to two years, themed face-paint­ing, para­chute games,” she said.

“Pyjama Drama of­fers drama and cre­ative play classes for ba­bies and chil­dren un­der seven years old.

“Ig­nit­ing the imag­i­na­tion with drama games, sing-songs and role­play­ing, the classes de­velop a child’s key so­cial skills, such as con­cen­tra­tion, co-op­er­a­tion, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and con­fi­dence.”

Mrs Mul­der said chil­dren could dress up as pi­rates for the party, al­though their teach­ers did not use props or cos­tumes.

“Chil­dren have the most amaz­ing imag­i­na­tions, they role-play eas­ily and nat­u­rally, and pre­tend­ing is ac­tu­ally the way in which chil­dren make sense of the world around them,” she said.

The pi­rate party will run from 11am to 1pm at the Sprout Hub on Grass­wren Way, Alki­mos.

Pyjama Drama North West Perth can run classes at early learn­ing cen­tres, schools and par­ties be­tween Car­ra­mar and Two Rocks.
