Helium, Working with Community Mothers and families.
In March 2012 Community Mothers worked in partnership with Helium in facilitating workshops which were part of the Seminar Creative Connections in Mullingar. Helium also trained a group of Community mothers from Mullingar, Athlone and Longford in making some of the props used to stimulate the parent/baby relationship using simple every day items. The workshop was a huge success and all of the Community mothers really enjoyed the experience as well as learning new ways of helping parents development stimulating play experiences.
