Events — Elf Workshop
07/12/2019 until 21/12/2019
This Christmas your little ones can find out what it’s really like to be an elf here in the Square.
Whilst you tick off your Christmas shopping list, let Holly & Ivy the elves entertain the kids at our free Elf Workshops!
With games, crafts and festive fun, they’ll learn what it takes to be one of Santa’s little helpers.
Come along and join in the fun – you’d be crackers not to!
From 11am – 3pm on the 7th, 14th and 21st of December.
Saturday 7th December
Every child will be welcomed by our two fun time elves, Holly & Ivy and get signed up to the Elf Training Programme.
The group of trainee elves will be taken through a very important Elf & Safety briefing before learning and practicing the Elf Code and being given their own Elf Name. Upon completion of the briefing, the elves will be presented with their very own complimentary Elf hat, red cheek makeup and glitter!
The trainee elves are required to pass the reindeer test by memorising all 9 reindeer names. The elves will then be able to make a bag of their own reindeer food ready for Christmas Eve.
Finally, the elves will be given an Elf Training Record from Santa and tasks will be ticked off. More tasks will need to be completed in the following weeks too.
Saturday 14th December
This week Holly & Ivy will welcome the trainee elves back stamp and stamp their elf training records. Each mini elf will get their cheeks painted again and those that did not attend the previous week will be given their hat.
This week the elves will learn how to wrap presents in record time and pass the Chief Elf Inspection Test. They will get to practice in the elf wrapping zone, if they want, they can even bring in their own present and wrap that!
Holly & Ivy will then spark the mini elves’ imagination with a story and teach the Trainee Elves how to write the perfect letter to Santa. The children will each receive a decorated piece of paper and a Santa addressed envelope. The mini elves can start their letter to Santa to take home to finish.
They are invited to return the following week to give the finished letter to Holly & Ivy who will ensure they go directly into Santa’s letterbox.
Saturday 21st December
For the final week of the elf workshops, the mini elves must learn how to sing a Christmas song perfectly in tune to create that special Christmas Magic, they will get their own song sheet too, to take home!
They will then be shown how to decorate a Christmas biscuit as a practice run so that they know how to do it on Christmas Eve, ready to leave out for Santa.
Once they have learned the song and practiced the biscuit decorating, their Elf Training Records are stamped ready for Christmas Eve, and the mini elves each get a certificate at the end, signed by Holly, Ivy and Santa!
