Christmas crafts

We will be at the Baby & Children's Market providing Christmas themed crafts activities for families visiting the event.

There are two different decorations that you can make:

- a mini Christmas tree made from lolly sticks, pipe cleaners, sequins and foam shapes.

- a clay ornament, decorated using inks, felt tips, glitter and sequins.

You can even make a lovely keepsake, where each family member does a finger print 'bauble'. This is particularly nice for families with babies and younger children, who would like to join in.

When and where:

 

Sunday 8th December

3:00-4:30pm

Baby and Children’s Market Whitby

(Whitby Sports & Social Club, Chester road, Ellesmere Port, CH65 6QF)

  • Facebook

Cost: 

£1 per craft

(+ event entrance fee of £1 per adult).

Halloween!

You can paint spooky pictures using stencils, stampers or even your hands and feet, use playdough to make creepy creatures, and colour and stick to make even more frightening and exciting Halloween decorations including witches, monsters, ghosts and pumpkins. Plus there will be colouring sheets, wordsearches and puzzles.

These activities will be most suitable for 3-8 year olds, but younger children can still join in with a bit of adult help, and older children are welcome if they would enjoy it. 

 

For children aged 3 and over, it is £6 per child. This gives you total access to all activities (painting, playdough, sticking and colouring – but you can often do more than one project at each table).

For children aged 2 and under, you have the option to pay the full price to do all the activities, or a discounted price of £3 to just do the dough and painting activities (the best activities for little ones who would like to join in, but don’t stay focused for long!). We also have a small area with a few toys and games that is free of charge.
