Crafty Kids
Little Angel’s exciting Saturday morning club for 2-5 year olds and their carers.ย  Members begin the term by watching a performance of ‘The Birthday Cake’ and meeting the puppets.ย  The following 7 weeks are spent on ‘crafty’ activities, songs and games linked to the show including some simple puppet making.ย  The children must be accompanied by an adult carer and will leave each session with something they have made themselves.ย  Why not take the little one to Crafty Kids while the older children make puppets at our ever popular Saturday Puppet club?
