Review: Dot to Dot Music and Craft group

Dot to Dot Music and Craft is a toddler group setup by mums Becky and Gemma in Walton-on-Thames/Hersham. It’s a great little group where little ones sing rhymes and can get involved in the story telling with Gemma then move onto fun crafting with Becky.

Becky is Mum to Alex and a Graphic Designer. Gemma is Mum to Oscar and a professional performer (dancer, singer and actress). They both met at the local library rhyme time when their boys were small and have been good friends ever since.

Becky had volunteered to help continue running a local playgroup in Walton-on-Thames and over the summer holidays tried out some craft ideas with the little ones which proved very popular. This sparked off the idea of running a group which combined Becky’s crafting sessions with music and story telling by Gemma.

All children like different things and will sit still or not for different activities. Combining rhymes, story telling (with puppets) and at least two different crafting sessions means that all children, whatever age, are engaged in at least one of the activities, keeping their brains active and using their fine motor skills while having a great time.


For both Mum’s who love their jobs, running this group has meant that they can combine their skills and talents along with being a Mum.

When I took Jack along he didn’t really sit down for the rhymes or the story telling but that was OK. He loved interacting with Gemma and the puppets along with the other children and playing the instruments. Jack also loved the crafting and we came away with a crown (which he still wears), poppy and bunting. He than ran around with the other children which was lovely to watch.

We both had a fab time and highly recommend taking your little ones along.
