Play and Storytelling; Connecting Generations the Intergenerational Way Toolkit [Colour, unabridged]

Play and Storytelling, Connecting Generations the Intergenerational Way

Generations Working Together and Play Scotland are delighted to present and share this toolkit. We also have a black and white version, using a larger font for those who may prefer this resource. An audio version should be ready to share shortly, as we endeavour to support play and storytelling across all generations and settings.

Designed as a practical guide to support practitioners to develop intergenerational relationships through play and storytelling, you will find it packed with best practice, steps to take you through how to get started and other useful free resources from GWT and Play Scotland, alongside case studies and practitioners’ top tips and suggestions. Share your interest and passion for intergenerational connections and shared learning by displaying either, or both, of our new posters in this suite of resources.

Play and storytelling are universal languages of connection, learning and exploration. Although the words themselves are often most commonly used with children, this toolkit guides the reader into seeing how the words describe human development, function and wellbeing through every age and stage.

We hope this resource will be used to develop confidence and support all those interested in building meaningful connections between younger and older people, as well as being part of a journey for practitioners and managers in recognising just how rich these golden threads are. It is supported further by our complementary Play and Storytelling Intergenerational Booklist and two recordings of events held as part of the project which can be found on our Vimeo Channel, Play and Storytelling Connecting Generations and Play and Storytelling Intergenerational Toolkit Launch which you are very welcome to view.
