Last year we had our very popular kids craft table at every market ... however in May, due to it being our first market in the new venue, we decided not to run it. But we are happy to say that for July it will be back !!
And this time there is a very important theme. As you may have seen we are supporting the charity Mind at the market as it is falling on the day of their Crafternoon event. Mental health awareness is a cause very close to our hearts as a team and something that we really want to encourage adults and kids to talk about more ... So that’s where this markets kids craft table comes in !
We will be supplying all the things needed to create their own ‘Little Box of Happy Things’ ... We are hoping that this will provide a wonderful reminder of things that make them happy! Perfect for those times when they may be finding things a bit tough or feeling a little sad. They can go to the box and find all the little things that make them happy !
We are asking for a little donation per box of 50p or more which will go straight to Mind to help them with their amazing work ! On the table, along with the little boxes, will be stickers, pencils and more! They can go crazy with the decoration and make them look colourful and fun. Then there will be pieces of paper for them to either write or draw things that make them happy to pop in their boxes ... be that family, friends, pets, their favourite film, a yummy food or even just their favourite thing to do !!
Here's an example of what they could create, using the materials supplied ... the blank box will give them the opportunity to get creative ! We'd love to see photos of their creations ... be sure to tag us in your photos or send them to us on social media. They could even pose with our photo board on the day !
So bring your kids along and help them remember all the happy things in their lives but don’t forget to let them know it’s ok to be sad sometimes !
