We have taken up temporary residency on the upper level of St Johns Centre in the shop unit which was previously Jumbo Records. The unit enables us to offer a playful and creative space for children and families in the city centre. We are currently running ‘Pop In and Play’ sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays 11.00am till 1.00pm, so take a break from shopping and come in and play with your children. We have lots of interesting stuff to play with and a wide variety of tubes, boxes, ribbon, paper and much more to get creative.
Our arts and crafts shop is also open during ‘Pop in and Play’ and our Artful Dodgers creative sessions during school holidays. There is a selection of papers, sequins, glue, drawing materials, glitter and paints at low cost. We also stock special craft packs for seasonal activities such as Halloween or Christmas.
We are very grateful for the support we have received from St Johns Centre, Child Friendly Leeds and Leeds City Council.
This year we will be opening at St Johns Centre to deliver Christmas arts and crafts sessions. There is no need to book but children must be accompanied by an adult who will stay with them throughout the session. The craft activities are most suitable for children aged 3 plus but we also have lots of other stuff for younger children to play with. We also have craft resources, paint, glue, boxes, tubes etc which could be used with adult assistance to suit the needs of younger children. We will be open:
