We have lots going on for children and families!
Parties in the shop
Our children's parties are very popular for birthdays and other special occasions! Make sure to book well in advance to avoid disappointment. Please see our Party page for information.
Designed for preschool children and their parents and carers (plus older siblings at our new after school club, our 1 hour Sticky Fingers sessions are created around popular children's stories such as the Hungry Caterpillar.
Joanna is an experienced early years teacher and has lots of ideas to share with you. A peep into our story suitcase will bring our book session to life, followed by a creative activity linked to the story, based on cake, biscuit or lighter alternatives. Then a milk/juice and cookie break with game or song session. Finally we finish off with a craft activity. Babies and toddlers welcome too. Jo will support older children when parents need to support younger ones. Toys and books are available to share. A lovely activity in a friendly and inspiring environment. Idea sheets to take home to develop the theme we have begun in the session.
