The year’s end approaches, and with it, our Holiday Craft Workshop program 🏖🏡🌞⭐🌟🎅🎄! Time for kids to enjoy creating some beautiful Christmas decorations, and for parents to freely prepare for the upcoming celebrations.


We have two days on offer at Gumnuts Playgroup Centre [4 Mudalla Way, Koongamia]:


Tuesday, 18th & Wednesday, 19th December.


Two workshops will run each day:


10:30am-12 noon; 12:30-2pm.


Children can either come for one, or stay for the whole day!


We will have a short break in the middle of each workshop, so children will require a snack for each workshop, a water bottle; and a packed lunch (for those staying for both workshops). The centre is air conditioned; and has a wonderful, fenced, nature play garden outside.




#1. Tues 18th



Craft hanging tree ornaments from upcycled jar lids! Surround your circular lid with beautiful Christmas embellishments and a loop for hanging on the tree, leaving a centre space which can later be filled with a photo! A surefire keepsake to cherish forever.


*Lunch break*


#2. Tues 18th



Starting with a lovely blank decorative glass jar, draw a Christmas scene with markers, then collage with colourful, translucent tissue paper pieces. Complete your lantern with a battery-operated tealight. Perfect for the mantle, or Christmas table!




#3. Wed 19th



Use cookie cutters as a guide (or free hand) to cut out two matching felt Christmas shapes. Stitch them together, include a ribbon loop to hang, stuff then embellish with eyes, buttons, sequins and glitter glue! A truly amazing feat of dexterity and old-school skills.


*Lunch break*


#4. Wed 19th



Cover a conical polystyrene ‘tree’ with fabric, then embellish it all over with pinned buttons, beads and sequins, to your heart’s delight! Top with a star. A crafty, sparkly, freestanding Christmas treasure.
