Fun & Creative

A series of hand-on, engaging workshops that use interactive activities to bring the fun to learning.

A group of youth workers stand in a circle, talking.

Youth Scotland have developed a range of interactive activity toolkits with 24 -26 fun activities for all ages. These activities can easily be included into plans for holiday programmes.  The toolkits are designed to be run in out of school clubs, youth clubs, community groups, schools or at home.  These can be incorporated into the Hi5 Award, which is an SQA externally quality assured award at SCQF Level 2.

Youth Scotland’s Toolkits:

  • Feel Good Toolkit – includes sensory stimulating, emotion exploring, gratitude and personal development activities to ignite children and young people’s curiosity to explore their emotional wellbeing.
  • Creative Arts Toolkit – encourage young people to participate in the creative arts in a safe fun environment including activities in music, drama, movement and creative writing. There are also some, eco-friendly activities using recycled materials to spark young people’s creativity and encourage them to think about their environment.
  • Cyber Resilience Toolkit – includes activities to encourage children/young people to think about their online interactions and encourage them to keep safe online.
  • STEM Toolkits – includes a number of fun STEM activities ranging from coding to rockets!
