Whilst we haven't been able to visit schools and organisations, we have posted some activities below that may be fun to watch and do if you are in isolation or in looking for activities to do at home.
Getting out in nature provides a wonderful escape from stress, anxiety and negative thoughts. It has been long thought that swimming and playing at the beach has even more health benefits; historically doctors would recommend their patients go to the seaside to improve their various illnesses!
Saltwater Creations aims to bring the Coast to the COVID, to help you all to be at the beach - virtually!
We have posted some videos and activities below for you all, and hopefully this will help towards creating positive physical and emotional wellbeing for you all in these times of adversity.
Stay safe and hope to see you all soon!

Meet Millie and Charlie!
We have talked about them lots in the workshops and how they love the beach. Many children have learnt to surf on Charlie's surfboard too! Now it's time to meet them, and see them making their own lockdown pebbles!
Millie also used this 'live stream' experience for her home learning, so enjoy watching us all learn how to use the live internet too!
Please note: This is posted on Facebook Watch Party so will need parents to click on the link through their Facebook page.
Saltwater Creations supports and volunteers at The Wave Project Charity.
