CRAFT workshops, cooking classes and character appearances will keep the kids busy at Merry Hill next week.

Half-term fun at the Brierley Hill shopping centre kicks off tomorrow (Saturday May 24) as youngsters can get their toes-a-tappin' on a giant floor piano, as seen in the movie Big.

There will also be plenty of opportunities to get crafty, with Disney princess and pixie workshops on Monday (May 26) and bracelet making sessions for Help Harry Help Others, on Tuesday\(May 27).

Children’s favourites Ben and Holly will be stopping by on Wednesday (May 28) to lead their special story-telling sessions, while little chefs can also try their hands at decorating some tasty treats at a Millie’s Cookies workshop.

Funky face painting on Thursday (May 29) and arts and crafts events with Tiger on Friday (May 30) will help to round off a fun-filled week.

Kelly Reed, senior marketing manager at Merry Hill, said: “We have some brilliant activities planned for kids over the May half-term with cooking, crafts, and musical madness—we’re sure there will be something to suit everyone.

“We hope lots of our young customers and their families pay us a visit to make the most of our jam-packed schedule.”
