Things That Go!

In the run up to the Summer holidays, Make Do and Grow are getting creative making things that really get moving! (Sneaky science included!)

Things That Go!

About Things That Go!

Boats - Saturday 26th May
Make a raft based sail boat and a paper ship and then see who can create the most wind (!) in a race across our mini lake.

Rockets - Saturday 2nd June
Bring the family along for an exciting workshop designing balloon rockets to race across our workshop. Then make your own straw blow rocket to take home.

Planes and Helicopters - Saturday 16th June
Making paper helicopters that twirl back to earth and catapult planes to fire through our ready made target board.

Cars - Saturday 23rd June
Add drive with these scrap material vehicles using real pull back mechanisms.

All of our workshops use scrap materials where possible.
As usual, all activities are suitable for ages 3-12 and we try to make every activity full of fun for all ages. Younger ones will manage with help and older ones can get really creative with their designs.
£3 first child, £2 siblings. Spaces at 1.30, 2.30 and 3.30pm. Simply message, email or call to book.

We love doing activities as a family so parents and carers are requested to stay and enjoy the creative fun. We have a small seating area and toys within the workshop for those families with younger children and babies. Children are also free to play with the toys in our shop area and draw on our chalkboard wall.

Make Do & Grow is a not-for-profit social enterprise focussed on supporting growing families, developing creativity and encouraging reuse.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Things That Go! are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
