Christmas is all about family and being together! Spend a morning with your child creating gorgeous ornaments for your Christmas tree or decorations for your home or perhaps you have a very special Grandparent that would adore a handcrafted gift from your child this Christmas?! Messy play is vital to your child’s development and this workshop will give them the chance create something they can be proud of. The children will have the chance to play with the dough and get messy before they use the cookie cutters to cut their shapes ready for the oven. Kids of all ages are welcome as we roll, beat, squish and cut out some awesome Christmas shapes! So much fun to be had at this workshop, you don’t want to miss it!
