People always say that you never get something for nothing but Tiny Acorns recently proved otherwise with their first Childrens’ FREE activity day.
Sam, the creator of Tiny Acorns Creavtivity Centre wanted to provide the children with something completely different to do that all the parents could get involved in without worrying about the cost, twelve weeks school holidays is a long time and it can get very expensive trying to occupy the kids as they get bored and restless towards the end of the holidays.
The aim was to offer the children the experience to try something new, and in the process generate some awareness of the creative businesses that we have in the local area.
Many companies were involved in providing activities for the day, along with the craft table, junk modelling and drawing stations set up by Tiny Acorns. There was tile painting with the staff from ‘I Parea Mikron Filon' nursery with donations from The Pottery Place, face painting by St Johns Church, Deryneia, Baby Ballet and Theatre arts by Performers Academy of Dance, pottery making with Askott Pottery and story time with myself as the Famagusta Parents Network.
There was also a free raffle with prizes donated by Personalised in Cyprus and Banbao building bricks as well as Tiny Acorns craft packs. Home Sweets Home were there selling wide variety of retro sweets which was very popular with kids and adults alike, and my hubby was there as Aaron’s Klik Photo CY to capture the fun on camera!
The day was a great success and well attended by families of all ages. I took both my boys who are huge Tiny Acorns fans, Leo (age 5) having attended throughout the summer holidays with Loukas and I and loving every second.
I loved being part of the event as the Famagusta Parents Network and helping to support Sam in arranging the day, it was great fun and I think our concepts work really well together, hopefully the attendees did to, and I look forward to future FPN / Tiny Acorns collaborations!
