Hi I’m Laura,
I am the main face you will see at Crafty Kids Wirral.
I started developing the idea of Crafty Kids at the end of 2015. I am a primary school teacher but was on maternity leave at the time. My teacher brain still kept ticking over - planning activities to keep my 3 year old daughter entertained whilst dealing with her baby brother.
I would become slightly panicked when it came to the school holidays and everything stopped - no school / pre-school / toddler groups / any sort of normal routine! I would often do lots of craft activities to fill the time, and I began to think “Surely there are other desperate parents like me, why don’t I hire somewhere and share my ideas?” – and so Crafty Kids was born!
I planned 12 events in the summer holidays of 2016, as my maternity leave ended in July and I was going back to work in September. They were far more successful than I could have imagined and people begged me to keep going and so I have – every school holiday since I have run at least one event, and we have also provided a few special activities at public events like Christmas / summer fairs, parties and fundraisers.
