Eastgate Shopping Centre is offering a fun-filled 6-week programme to keep all the family happy! Starting on Wednesday 10th July, free summer activities and workshops will take place every Wednesday between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm.
Cairngorm Creatures are excited to bring along a selection of fascinating animals on July 10th - from lizards to snakes, cockroaches to giant snails! They will give a short talk about each animal, followed by the opportunity for any brave child (or adult) to hold them. The Entertainer will also be doing toy testing outside their store and Jammy Piece will be offering parents a free coffee if they purchase a lunch box for their child.
On July 17th, children will have the opportunity to be whatever or whoever they wish. From tigers to butterflies, Happy Faces (a firm favourite at previous Eastgate events) will be ready with her face paints! Messy-Ness will also be around for some messy fun - children will have the freedom to explore a variety of sensations using touch, smell, sight and hearing.
Using paint and mixed media, children can come along on July 24th and create a 10 cm (H) Lego mini-figure with ARTventurers! As well as themed colouring activities, there will also be trays of Lego and Duplo to play with. Bubbles the Clown will also be in the Centre to make everyone smile with witty remarks, balloon modelling and circus skills.
Join Waterstones on July 31st for story time! The drop-in story sessions will start at 11:00 am, 12 noon, 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm. With each session lasting approx. 30 minutes. To promote healthy eating and physical activity, FITkidz Academy will be along with a smoothie bike – an entertaining and fun way to produce a healthy drink. The Entertainer will also be doing toy testing outside their store and Jammy Piece will be offering parents a free coffee if they purchase a lunch box for their child.
Come along on August 7th and witness fun illusions and balloon modelling by one of Scotland’s top magical entertainment companies.
