The free Bookbug Explorer Bag is packed with books, music, drawing materials and other resources to encourage parent and child interaction. The 2017 Bookbug evaluation study shows us that the bags are most effective when parents and children are involved in the gifting process. Join us to find out how to make the most of the Bookbug Explorer Bag in your setting!
Each webinar will cover:
- what’s in the newest Explorer Bag, released in March 2021, and how the resources can be used in early years settings and in the family home
- ways to gift the Explorer Bag effectively, including how to excite children about books, stories and reading
- ideas for engaging with parents and involving them in your gifting event
- key messages about book sharing to pass on parents
- further resources available from Scottish Book Trust
We recommend watching this webinar with your colleagues so you can spend time planning your Explorer Bag gifting activities after the session.
Note for childminders: this webinar focus on gifting the bag in group settings.
