Free Author Reading of ‘A Dot in the Snow’ by Corrinne Averiss
Saturday 25th November, 10:30am-11:30am
Lovely local author Corrinne Averiss returns to Our Kid with her bestselling winter tale 'A Dot in The Snow' to celebrate its release in paperback format. Corrinne will be reading this heartwarming tale as we snuggle in a circle with complimentary kid’s hot chocolates. A sweet mitten decorating craft will follow for anyone who would like to dress their tree with a memento of the occasion. Signed copies of the book will be available to buy on the day. Oh and if you think the story sounds familiar, it might be because you heard it on CBeebies Bedtime Stories last Christmas! The session will take place outside so please wrap up warm! This is a free event but we will require you to register a ticket for each child attending via the link below so that we can keep track of numbers.
Free Christmas Card Making Workshop led by From Babies with Love
Saturday 2nd December 10:30am-1pm
To celebrate the launch of From Babies with Love at Our Kid we are absolutely delighted to host a free Christmas Card Making Workshop.
From Babies with Love will provide blank cards and envelopes, and children can cut/ stick/ draw to create a christmas character on their card. Included in the materials are lots of postal stickers and stamps - including some stamps with the brand's very own character designs. So the children will be using the same art technique that their designers do.
From Babies with Love is the baby brand that donates 100% of its profits to orphaned and abandoned children. Every penny of profit from their beautiful, ethically sourced baby gifts goes to vulnerable children around the world. In safe, happy places, they can grow up in a loving family. Children of all ages will enjoy this informal drop-in card-making activity and our specially curated edit of From Babies with Love products will be available to buy on the day. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join in with this sweet festive occasion.
