Sticky Stories storytelling and craft group for toddlers and pre-school children
Wednesday mornings 10:30 – 11:30 in the Create Café
Come and join our journey as we explore old and new picture books. Make the books come alive, as we make our own unique characters. Turn an odd sock into a dazzling fish, a toilet roll into an adorable cat, make a star from drinking straws, or turn a piece of paper into a sailing boat. We use everyday objects and turn them into fun and easy crafts for all to make. Each week your child will have the opportunity to make up to 4 different crafts from painting, to junk modelling, and from colouring to sticking.
Sessions cost just £3.00 for the first child and £2.00 for additional children. Siblings under one year are free.
No need to pre-book, just come along on the day. For more information please visit www.stickystories.co.uk, or for the latest pictures of crafts made please visit and ‘Like’ us on Facebook under ‘Stickystories’. We are also on twitter: ‘@Stickystories1’.
