At the Shops activities are fun, one-hour sessions where families can come together to participate in various engaging activities that will bring smiles, laughter, and learning to your little ones.

Themed activities include, but are not limited to:

Crafty Creative Creations: Let your child's artistic talents shine as they create masterpieces to take home. Our craft activities are designed to inspire creativity and boost self-confidence.

Storytime Magic: Immerse your child in the enchanting world of storytelling. Our storytellers captivate young hearts with tales that transport them to far-off lands and inspire a lifelong love for reading.

STEM: Stimulate your child's cognitive development through activities that encourage exploration, critical thinking and problem-solving in an entertaining and educated way.

School Readiness: Help your child be school ready with themed activities that encourage name recognition, using scissors, practising counting, sitting for a mat session and packing away.  

We cannot wait to see you and your little ones light up with joy during our At the Shops activities!
