How to get involved

Head over to Mini Maisie's website where you'll find videos that demonstrate activities that children can replicate at home, and can involve the whole family. Alongside the videos are PDF activity packs which include a cutout Mini Maisie puppet, instructions for each activity and additional decorations or resources to help inspire a child’s creativity. Grown ups can then share photos of the creations on social media using #maisiesjournals. These will be also shared on Mini Maisie's website.

Mini Maisie's adventures are suitable for little ones aged 3-6, with help from their grown ups. You can download the pdfs and accompanying films on Mini Maisie's website every Sunday for three weeks from 19th July.

The artist

UpsideUp Theatre Company was formed in 2017, and consists of 5 graduates of the Arts University Bournemouth 'Acting' and 'Costume and Performance Design' courses. They are used to touring their environmental awareness show 'BLUE' around schools in different areas of the UK, but are now moving their focus to online and socially-distanced art and educational resources in this time of global pandemic.
