Does your child love dinosaurs? Looking for something to do at half term?

Then this workshop is perfect for you…

A make-your-own dinosaur workshop at SK eight coffee shop in Cheadle Hulme.

When: Monday 17th February 2020 at 10.30am or 1pm. The workshop is an hour long.

It is suitable for children aged 3 and up.

Choose either a brachiosaurus or a triceratops. Both are 16” soft toys. The children will work with you to stuff their own toy, a really special experience. They will add a heart and write a birth certificate for their new friend. This is followed by dinosaur themed crafts and a story.

The children will take their dinosaur home in a special bag, along with the birth certificate and crafts. All of this for only £19.50 per child.

This workshop is run by Little Learners Stockport, which runs mark making and messy play classes and events in Stockport and Cheshire.

It follows very popular Christmas workshops at SK eight which had great feedback.

“We attended the Christmas workshop today so my son could make a Teddy for his sisters first Christmas. It was fantastic! Well organised, excellent value for money and super Christmassy. Thanks so much! (Emma, review on Facebook)
