No scheduled events


Booking required?

Explore the magic of The Corner at Home Activities. Make, do, move, sing, explore and, most importantly, play with us from home! 

Our rich online children's resources have been developed to help continue the learning experience while COVID-19 restrictions gradually ease.

These activities require very little resources and will spark important language development and open-ended play opportunities for your young children.


This Friday, join Tom in creating a simple paperclip train that is as impressive as it is long!

Watch on the SLQ, SLQPlay and First5Forever Facebook pages. 

You'll find more of The Corner at Home Activities here.


What equipment and materials are needed?  

Use materials and objects found in your home environment:

  • Paperclips (any size) 
  • Blu-tac or Play Dough
  • (optional) For the front of the train: toy animal/toy car/bulldog clip (If you don’t have any of these, just use a regular paperclip) 
  • Chalk or masking tape and scissors.
