Summer Holiday Mini Makers – Recycled Cardboard Animals | Tuesday 20th August @ 2pm | 1.5 – 5 years

August 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Summer Holidays Mini Makers – Recycled Cardboard Animals


We’ll get started by providing animal templates, or feel free to draw the animal of your choice onto cardboard. Next we’ll colour and decorate our animals. Once you are happy with your animal, we’ll cut out the U-shaped legs and insert them into slits cut into the body shapes. Now your animal can stand! This activity is brilliant because not only do you get creative, your child will have a hand made cardboard animal to take home and play with!

We’ll provide everything you need to create from the Scrapstore, a reuse charity dedicated to helping businesses divert reusable waste from landfills so that establishments like ours and many others can provide art and play opportunities.

Our Mini Maker sessions usually run term time, but we have decided to offer 2 days per week for the month of August. If you are a regular, we look forward to seeing you, if you are new to Goldfinch, we can’t wait to introduce you to these playful creative sessions! After your session why not grab something in our cafe. From fresh fruit smoothies to sourdough sandwiches, our menu has lots to choose from for adults and children. 

Age Requirement:

If your child is aged 3 + feel free to drop off. For the under 3’s you are required to stay and co create with your child.
