Welcome to the Mini Writers Club. I'm Anna, a Primary School Teacher, currently working in Early Years. I have two children, a 1 year old and a 4 year old, and I love designing and making things.
The Mini Writers Club was thought up while I was on maternity leave with my second child. I was used to having lots of time to set up activities with my first child but I found it harder to do once I had a baby to look after too. I wished that I had a box of activities at my finger tips which required no preparation and would be educational.
I am used to planning activities for my Early Years classroom which the children access independently. I thought it would be useful to have similar activities to hand at home when I was feeding my son or that I could quickly grab while he was napping so I set up my first box.
As a Primary School teacher, I often get asked how parents can support their children and prepare them for school. I believe that children learn best through play and I wanted to show parents that there are so many fun ways to get children ready for writing which don’t even include a pencil or paper. I decided to make and sell boxes so that parents and carers could support children at home.
The Mini Writers Club is aimed at 3-5 year olds to help develop pre-writing skills. Each box contains resources, activity ideas and crafts to support skills such as fine motor skills, hand-eye co-ordination and hand strength which are fundamental skills that children need before they are able to write.
I have had such amazing feedback and support from customers already and I can't wait to release more boxes! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
