Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions, if you can’t find what your looking for then please feel free to contact us.

Workshops

Oglee Poglee workshops are suitable for children aged 18 months upwards.  Everything at Oglee Poglee focuses on open ended play and creativity so children of all ages can enjoy it.  Toddlers and preschoolers enjoy the messy and sensory play elements whilst the older children can try out new skills and learn new techniques.

Currently we host our workshops in hired venues around our local area of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.  Mainly Berkhamsted and Harpenden.

We run our workshops on various dates within the school holidays.  Our latest workshop dates can be viewed in our workshops section.  Here  you can select the workshop date you require, add in the names and ages of your children and then place your order.

Once we receive your order we will email you a confirmation and more information about the workshop.  You will also receive a reminder email a week before the workshop.

Arts and craft activities with kids can get messy but don’t worry as it’s our job to do all the tidying up.  At our workshops there will be a cleaning up area for hand washing and aprons are always provided to protect clothing.  Also all our paint is washable so any mess is easily washed out of clothes.  We do advise that you don’t wear your best clothes to an Oglee Poglee workshop.

We do use food in some of our messy play activities so do let us know of any allergies before a workshop and we can alter the activities accordingly.  All our paint is nut and wheat free.  We do provide a biscuit snack at the end of our workshops so feel free to bring an alternative snack for your child if you wish.

Creative Heroes Club Printable Challenges

When you purchase on of our family challenges you will receive an email containing two downloadable pdf documents.  One pdf is the challenge document that you will use during the challenge.  The other pdf is our detailed parent guide, please read the parent guide before starting the challenge.  It’s packed full of tips on how to get the most from the experience and will help you to really engage with your children’s learning and emotions.

We don’t put a set time on our family inventing challenges as all families are unique.   When families come to our events they have two hours to complete a challenge but the joy of the printable version is that you can take your time and come back to it on another day.

The making and inventing part if the main bit but children also like to come back and colour in the illustrations, make their hero badge and download their certificate.  We also include a page of ten or more extended learning ideas, so if you loved the theme of your challenge you can keep going and have even more fun.

At Oglee Poglee we love to celebrate the creativity of children.  All our Creative Heroes Club stories follow on from the next and Oglee Pip’s journey continues depending on what the children taking part invent to help him.  We never know where the story is going to go and that’s part of the fun.

Obviously there is nothing to stop you from downloading a challenge with a theme that appeals to your family but it won’t have the back story about the journey Oglee Pip has already been on.

Yes you can.  You won’t be able to colour in the illustrations but you can instead follow the printable on a screen.  The printable is a guide, the main part of the activity is the making part.

At the back of your challenge printable you will find a link to our secret hero web page.  Here you will find a certificate to download, an Oglee Pip to cut out and keep plus lots of other freebies.

Oglee Pip loves to see what you and your children have made.  You can upload three images on our Creative Heroes Club page and the strongest visuals will be featured in our makers gallery.  You can also share your designs with friends and family on social media and tag Oglee Poglee in with @ogleepoglee or #creativeheroesclub
