Dear Early Years Artists, Practitioners and Professionals,

I’m emailing from Family Connections, which is a Big Lottery funded project run by Somerset Film We deliver free activities across Somerset, for the whole family to learn about film, photography, computers and the Internet.

We have been developing our approach to with the under 5s and Children’s Centres in the communities we work with. Therefore, we wanted to let you know about a resource/activity pack that is available to use from the following Children’s Centres:

Williton/Watchet Children’s Centre

Bridgwater (Hamp but there will shortly be one at Victoria and Sydenham too)


Taunton (Acorns/ Hillside)

Yeovil (Reckleford)


The pack contains the following:


Kid- Tough droppable camera

V-Tech Kiddi zoom camcorder

Talking Point (recording buttons)

A4 Talking Photo Albums

Clatter Box’s

USB Microphones


The activity packs are complete with instructions cards which explain how to use each of the items, along with ideas to get families started.


We just wanted to highlight the launch of the resource. Most of the centres are putting the packs into their toy libraries so families can use them but if the centres run activities, we would be delighted if they can use them too.


If you have any other questions, please do feel free to get in touch,


Many thanks,


Kirsty Bucknell
