What equipment will I need?

We will post a box to your home containing everything siblings need to complete the activity. Each activity is carefully designed for children to be able to do on their own, but some may need support from parents during the session. Each pack will include some suggested follow-on activities you can easily do at home with leftover materials or common household items to keep the creativity going!

What will we be making in the art sessions?

Younger siblings will be making an art window

and siblings aged 11-17 will be making a light tube.

Can more than one sibling in a family join in?

Yes!  But they will need to join the session for their age group.  We have limited places, so ask you to consider whether this is an activity that all of your children will enjoy.

Will I have to pay?

This activity is free for siblings.  Sibs relies on fundraising to maintain it’s activities, so if you are in a position to make a small donation, it would be very much appreciated.  You can donate here.

Can my disabled child join in?

Sibs is only funded to work with siblings of disabled children, so this activity is for siblings only.

Access

To participate, parents/carers will need to provide an email address to receive the Zoom link. You’ll need Wi-Fi and a computer, tablet or smartphone with camera and microphone (usually built in). If for any reason you have technical difficulties during the session, each pack will include instructions to allow you to complete the activity.

Parents

Will need to be available for the first 5-10 minutes of the session so that Sibs can say hello and we can give an introduction to the session.
