CALENDAR OF FREE KIDS’ EVENTS LAUNCHED AT THISTLES
Thistles’ Wolf Pack returns with ten free events for children championing creativity and sustainability
Thistles’ popular Wolf Pack kids’ club returns for another year on February 26 with a brand-new schedule of free unique monthly events that encourage the next generation to lead by example and take the sustainable steps required in order to save the planet.
Over the course of the year, the Wolf Pack will bring ten exciting events to the kids of Stirling, with a focus on planet earth and sustainability. Free to sign up to via the Thistles website, members of the Wolf Pack can take part in monthly activities between 12-4pm to learn about sustainability, join in arts and crafts sessions and have their faces painted.
Following last year’s success, to help support the events, the Wolf Pack has once again partnered with the Sustainable Supers, a dynamic group on a mission to teach young shoppers how to take care of themselves and the world around them. This year’s programme kicks off with a fun packed creative crafting session celebrating National Whale Day, during which attendees will have the opportunity to make their own water spouting whale creations using recycled egg cartons.
Each month will offer a new theme, accompanied by engaging creative and educational activities utilising sustainable materials. Proving that variety is the spice of life, there’s something for everyone at Thistles’ Wolf Pack, from Halloween freaky face painting and crafting your own creepy creations with recycled loo rolls, through to designing your own dinosaur cookies.
The final event caps off the fun filled calendar on 26 November with a scandi-chic Christmas themed event to get everyone feeling the festive spirit by designing their own wooden slice decorations in an effort to move away from unnecessary plastics.
Gary Turnbull, Centre Director at Thistles, said: “The Wolf Pack is always a very popular event for us and we love to offer free monthly events to families in the Stirlingshire area and beyond, encouraging creativity with a purpose.
“We are to be joined once again by our Sustainable Supers. Each year they have done a fantastic job of keeping all of the Wolf Packers thoroughly entertained and engaged while teaching the kids about recycling and the sustainable measures we can all take to ensure we’re doing the best we can for the planet.
“From organic clay sculpting and handweaving to balloon art and face painting, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.”
