Squirrel Club

Heart

Meet the Art with Heart squirrel.

Some people think that squirrels are naughty and cheeky. We think that they’re full of fun, bounding with their bushy tails held high.

Like squirrels, sometimes ADHD is explained in a way that doesn’t capture the full picture.

Squirrel Club is for children and young people aged 8+ to help them explore their ADHD by creating their very own character. From cracking nuts naughtily to chit-chattering, this concept can help to find new ways of expressing what it’s like to live with ADHD.

The workshop is simple and fun, with a video and exercise you can do in your own time, followed by a Zoom meeting with fellow Squirrel Club member, Sarah, our Creative Director with ADHD. To join in, parents need to sign up at the link below to receive their activity video. When you’ve completed the activity, you can book a Zoom meeting to explore your character and what it means. Please make sure that you’ve watched the video and completed the activity before attending your Zoom meeting.
