Children visiting a St Helens shopping centre had a ‘eggstraordinary’ time when they made and decorated spring flower baskets.
The youngsters also made bunny ears during the free craft workshops run by the popular Shopper Whopper Kids Club at Church Square Shopping Centre.
Little Amber Morris, three, had a great time decorating a spring flower basket and hunting for eggs on the bunny trail around the centre. Amber attends the nursery at Garswood Primary School, and is also a pageant queen holding the title of Mini Miss North West.
Dad Ian Morris, from Garswood, said: “Amber loves arts and crafts and had a great time. We didn’t know this event was happening, I had just brought Amber along to do some shopping to give her mum Gemma a break. It’s a great idea.”
Little Phoebe Hurst, six, who attends Carmel Primary School, and her brother Jackson, three, also had a fun time. Mum Joanne Hall, from Clinkham Wood, St Helens, who works at Cassandra’s café in the shopping centre, said: “They’ve loved it making and decorating baskets and bunny ears.
“They collected loads of eggs on the bunny trail which we’re going home to eat.”
Church Square Shopping Centre manager Steven Brogan said: “Our Shopper Whopper Kids Activity Clubs are very popular with youngsters, both at weekends and during the school holidays.
“We understand that it’s not easy to find things for children to do that are free, fun and close to hand, which is why we arranged this event for the school holidays.”
