Let's Make Art I didn't hesitate. For all those parents who like me, slightly cringe at the thought of arts and craft at home due to the over enthusiastic nature of their child, which always leads to washing down the walls or dry cleaning the sofa cushions when paint/pencils/play-doh have found their way mushed in, then this is the kiddo class for you.

Launched in 2012, Let's Make Art is a cool arts and craft workshop for kids aged two and up, which enables children to explore their imagination and create high quality artwork in a safe and fun environment. Run by the super art duo Karen and Alice, both artists in their own right, the class guides children round each station to fulfil their creative desires and help develop the concept of colour, texture, composition and technique.
F has been to a few of these classes now and loves it, each week there is a new theme to explore and supplies to make fun stuff, with a chance for the mums and dads to catch up over a cuppa. In this drop in class we made edible art, with each child decorating a cup and plate before sitting down to lunch on face sandwiches made out of various ingredients. F loved the activities taking his time colouring his cup and adding small details to his plate. I haven't seen him eat so much, proving a fun lunch makes a happy kiddo. After lunch all the children headed outside to the small garden at the back of the hall, where blankets were thrown down for story time, all the children sitting and listening intently. Once the class is finished you get to take home your child's creations and display their masterpieces around the house.
Why not try and make a fun lunch at home? All you need is some:
Cut your bread into circles to make a face and then cut your other ingredients into various shapes using cookie cutters for the nose, eyes, mouth, hair etc. Separate all the cut out shapes into small bowls and place them in easy reach of their plate and let your child get creative with their culinary skills.
