Diabuddies Online: Children's Session


This event is for children aged 5-15 years with type 1 diabetes, we encourage siblings to join in too. 

Get creative with Bazil Grumble

Children will be divided into groups of similar ages and participate in either:

Halloween craft and games workshop for 5 – 10 year old’s

Come along and prepare to get spooky! Play some creepy drama games and make your very own origami spider puppet to play with after the session. This is an energetic and creative workshop not to be missed!

Resources required for this session:

  • 4 sheets of A4 black or coloured paper (or could be coloured in afterwards if coloured paper isn’t available)
  • 1 sheet of white paper
  • 1 piece of red paper (can be smaller than A4 as just need a small piece)
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Halloween dress ups if you feel like dressing in theme!

Star book making workshop for 11 – 15 year old’s

Get creative and make ordinary paper come to life! In this session you will learn how to make a covered artist book. This artwork is created by assembling a series of origami style folded pages that miraculously open to create a wonderful 3D star.

Resources required for this session:

  • 2 x 8cm x 8cm cardboard squares (You could cut these out of a cereal box – have a couple of spares in case you need them.)
  • 6 x 14cm x 14cm coloured paper squares (Either 2 different colours or 3 different colours looks great however if you only have white then that still works too. Again, have 6 spares in case you need them.)  
  • Coloured or patterned paper - 25cm x 25cm (Could be wrapping paper. Again, have spare in case you need it.) 
  • Roughly 30cm – 60cm of coloured string, wool or ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
