Earlier this summer children visiting Lakeside had fun learning fantastic new skills during free half term workshops.

Experts ran a packed week of exciting events to help children pick up fun new skills and make something amazing, and go on to try out their new skills at home too.

In Kids Go Potty, children got creative with ceramics. They could decorate some ready-made mugs, or made their own from clay then added their mini-me model to a big montage.

At Grow your Gardenon Fun they learned how to adapt old cast-offs to new must-haves such as bandanas, bunting and jewellery.

Sheridan Smithing Skills children planted a seed, then took it home and watched it flourish.

In Upcycle Fashi, marketing anager, at intu Lakeside commented: “The Make It Amazing half term workshops were extremely popular with our visitors. 2,829 children attended the workshops and we’ve had some fantastic feedback from parents and children alike highlighting how much they enjoyed the free activities.”
