Nook and Cranny’s Intergalactic Space Mission

Nook and Cranny are looking for brave space explorers to go on a mission to go across the Universe. They are looking for spectacular space stories that can take us out of this world.

Nook and Cranny’s Intergalactic Space Mission is designed as a fourteen day challenge to help you shape your stories. The activities could last as long as you like them to, but we think you can do them in 15 minutes. 

You can write, draw, move, make or tell to explore. You can look up what is actually out there in the stars or you can let your imagination roam through space capturing strange creatures, secret stars or unknown planets.

While these activities are designed for children, we think that they are a great intergenerational activity too.

You can download the full challenge below, including some extra resources to support this challenge.

Patchwork Tales

Hey you!
Patchwork Tales is a project that brings people together to get creative and celebrate community.
While we may have to physically isolate due to the Corona Virus, we believe this does not mean we
have to self isolate.
We hope that you will creatively respond to the ideas below and share online.
We hope you will ring your Granny and ask her thoughts on the ideas below.
We hope you will sit with your family and share ideas.
We hope you write letters, draw pictures and tell tales together.
We are all individuals, bright, vivid, wonderful people.
Let’s all come together and create a vibrant community patchwork.
All our love and best wishes,
Tom and Flick, Stitch HQ
