Meet the Team (Crafts)

Hello and welcome.

My name is Mandi and I love all things crafty !

My background is very much admin based spending the majority of my time working in sales, marketing and advertising.

I love to talk to people and hopefully they like to talk to me too.

Having children then gave access into the educational system where I have been for the last 17 years.

During that time I have worked within a classroom setting working 1:1 with children with specific learning difficulties, have run group interventions concentrating on gross motor skills and have also worked on the playgrounds and lunch areas.

I have also had involvement with breakfast clubs, after school care providers and after school science educators in the Hertfordshire area.

I love love love to garden, wallpaper, paint, tile and I’ve even knocked down a few walls over the years !

Above all I love to see children and young people use their imagination, creativity and unique style to bring arts and crafts alive - it’s amazing what you can do with a box and a loo roll !

I am passionate about children’s well-being, their self esteem, resilience and development. Most of all I am passionate about Doodlebugs and how we aim to support all children in a calm and creative space.

There are no right or wrong way at Doodlebugs just creativity 🐌🐝🐞
