These Summer school holidays, Dandenong Market will keep the kids entertained with their unique series of FREE 'Cool Creepy Crawly Craft' workshops.

Running every Market day from the 9th to 24th of January, girls and boys of all ages are welcome to join in the fun and create bugs, bees and butterflies in all shapes and colours!

These interactive workshops will see children get creative using ordinary household objects. Together they will create lots of exciting items that they can take home, including:

  • Wearable wings

  • Bug and butterfly crowns

  • Paper butterflies

  • Bug paper bag puppets

  • Bug jewellery

  • Pipe cleaner creepy crawlies

  • Spider web & bug plates

    The 'Cool Creepy Crawly Craft' workshops will be run by Dandenong Market favourite and award-winning face painter, Sci Westwood. Sci and her team are renowned for their creativity, and ability to make imaginative character play a reality with creativity and wonder.

    Dandenong Market's workshop series is highly popular during the school holidays because they are FREE and no bookings are required. Plus there is also a key focus on recycling and re-using simple materials, so the activities can be easily replicated at home.

    Both boys and girls will find appealing craft activities on offer and parents are more than welcome to get involved and have fun with their children.

    The 'Cool Creepy Crawly Craft' Workshops' will run every market day from the 9th to 24th January, from 11am to 3pm in Market Square.
