Specially for children: Mad Hatter’s Corner

Another Pantt partyry meeting last night, and the ideas were coming thick and fast for our Mad March Market – some slightly madder than others, it has to be said.

Only the Coffee Shop volunteers know (and they’re not saying) just how they’ll be interpreting the theme of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

But one idea we did put some thought into was having an activity at the market that would interest children. So we came up with …

Mad Hatter’s Corner

A space where children can get crafty making their own Mad March hat, or mask, or whatever their imagination comes up with.

Craft materials and equipment will be provided, and there’ll be a competition to find the best creation.

Children can enter on the day – all entrants will get a small prize – and there’ll be two age categories: Under 11 and 11-16.

The judging will take place at 1.30 pm – at the same time as the raffle draw.

So you can shop the stalls and have a coffee break in the knowledge that the youngsters will be happily occupied with scissors and glue – and someone else will be clearing up after them!
