As part of their big promotion this Christmas, Crewe Market is holding a number of free activities for children every Saturday in the indoor market, which began with Father Christmas with the Grinch and Elf last weekend.
Every Saturday morning from 10am – 12pm, children will be able to partake in Christmas themed arts and crafts for free, as well as more crafts on Monday 19th December. Also every Saturday is a chance to visit Father Christmas in his grotto at Crewe Indoor Market, and the possibility to send Christmas letters to Santa through the post box at the grotto.
This Saturday 3rd December will be an exciting opportunity for children to make their own mini Christmas Trees and ‘Handprint’ Canvases, which are an ideal Christmas gift for family members.
On Saturday 10th December, there is the occasion for children to make their own Christmas decorations. They will be able to paint and glaze Christmas Baubles to hang on their trees, which will make a lovely keepsake and souvenir.
The final Saturday before Christmas, 17th December, will see Crewe Market host a craftwork for kids where they can create Stained Glass decorations in their own designs, which is always a popular event.
Caroline Dodd, Editor, Crewe Life states, “It’s important to have activities that the children can get really involved with and teach them some craft skills.” Caroline continues, ‘We are delighted to be asked by Crewe Market to put on the free activities for the children. Community participation is at the very heart of Crewe Life’s values.”
Jo Adams, Stall Owner of Accessories at Crewe Market comments, “We are delighted to have Crewe Life participate and benefit from Caroline’s wealth of experience hosting children’s activities.” Jo continues, “We are confident they will be very popular and a resounding success and hope that the Crewe community comes along to support us.”
