Waiting for the arrival of the Easter Bunny can be a little tedious for the younger members of the whanau. So, why not distract them with some creative Easter workshops to make the time go a little more quickly!

See below for the line-up of fun classes to get stuck into in the first week of the holidays, from Easter egg shape decorating, to Clay Bunny Modelling, to Screen Printing, Sewing and Painting.

Cost: All classes (apart from Screen Printing): $15 per child. Screen Printing: $20 per child.

An adult is required to stay with all children under 7 years old.

Craft knives and hot glue guns are used in some of the classes. A safety demonstration will be given at the start of each class by the tutor.
