Thistles’ Wolf Pack returns with ten free events teaching children to save the world

The popular Wolf Pack kids’ club returns to Thistles this Sunday, 27 February, offering a fun-filled calendar of free events for children of all ages in the heart of Stirling. Taking place on the last Sunday of every month, the kids’ club will run from 27 February to 27 November

This year the Wolf Pack is back with ten exciting events covering a range of subjects, from Earth Day to Ocean Day. Free to sign up to via the Thistles website, members of the Wolf Pack will be able to take part in monthly activities between 12-4pm to learn about sustainability, join in on arts and crafts and get their faces painted. All Wolf Pack events will take place in the shopping centre, outside HMV.

Following the success of last year’s events, the Wolf Pack is once again calling on the help of the Sustainable Supers, a dynamic group on a mission to teach young shoppers how to take care of themselves and the world around them. The first event will see the Supers encourage attendees to create their own sustainable superhero pledges. Members of the kids’ club will get to play the part of their favourite superheroes by donning their hero face paint and creating their own handmade, sustainable super capes.

Each month offers a new theme with engaging and educational activities, from Halloween face painting, through to creating your own sustainable cardboard animal and designing your own busy bee for National Honey Bee Day.

The final event caps off the fun filled calendar on 27 November by getting little shoppers into the Christmas spirit by designing their very own bird houses, in anticipation of the return of everyone’s favourite garden visitor, the red robin.

Gary Turnbull, Centre Director at Thistles, said: “Following the successful return of our in-person Wolf Pack kids’ club events last year, we are thrilled to announce our exciting calendar of brand new events and look forward to welcoming back returning Wolf Packers as well as those new to our kids’ club.

“We’re delighted to say that we will be joined once again by our Sustainable Supers. They did a fantastic job teaching our Wolf Packers all about sustainability and the steps we can take to leave our world in a better place last year and I look forward to seeing them build on this messaging this year.

“With a range of different themes and free activities, from playing as your favourite superhero to building bird houses, there’s something for children across Stirling and Forth Valley to enjoy.”
