Cruinniú Na nÓg 2020

Ireland is the first, and only, country in the world to have a national day of free creativity for children and young people under 18. Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people.

This year ReCreate brought a treasure hunt for creative materials directly to the homes of thousands of families across Ireland. Seek & Gather invited families to seek and gather reuse materials from around your home, wherever you may be, and bring them together in our final workshop which you can see below. Seek & Gather was broken into two different age brackets, the orange clues below are related to our 2-6 years workshop, and the burgundy clues are for 6-12 years. If you missed out on the day, that’s totally fine, you can still run through all of the clues below (we have also provided answers for each 🙂 ) When you’ve gathered all of the ingredients, you can then tune in to the video with our facilitator Jo, and get creating!!

Here’s a taste of what to expect!

So, if you’re all set and ready to start the treasure hunt for materials then you can find the clues below. Happy hunting!!
