Christmas Countdown Workshops

About Christmas Countdown Workshops

Every Saturday afternoon in the 6 weeks before Christmas, we will be offering a different festive themed creative activity for children aged 3-12. All make something useful but fun in the preparations up to christmas, which in some cases can be used time and time again.

All activities will reuse scrap and donated materials.

November 18th: Christmas Cards
Make 6 personalised Christmas cards complete with envelopes. Ideal for sending to friends and family.

November 25th: Advent Calendar
Design your own advent calendar with 25 windows, each hiding a picture of your own choosing.

December 2nd: Decorations
Add some festivity to the home with fun and beautiful tree and /or home decorations.

December 9th: Small gift, decorative box and tag
Make a small gift (e.g. fridge magnets) and then make and design your own box and tag to present them with.

December 16th: Christmas crackers
Produce 6 personalised crackers each, complete with snap, hat and joke, ready for the table.

December 23rd: Santa plates and/or ceramic christmas plaques
Give a ceramic plate a new lease of life as a snack dish for Santa. Or turn a ceramic tile into a Christmas plaque to place in the window.


Cost is £3 for one child and £2 thereafter (e.g. a family with 4 children would cost £9 for one session).

Further discounts are available for booking all 6 sessions. £15 for one child and £10 thereafter (e.g. a family with 4 children would cost £45 for all 6 sessions).

Slots available at 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm each Saturday. Places are limited so booking is advisable, however drop in on the day is possible if there is space to accomodate.
Booking can be made by message on Facebook, by email Makedogrow@gmail.com or by phone 0141 4405998 (available during opening hours).
All sessons take around 50 minutes, depending on the level of detail the children wish to add to their creations.

We love doing activities as a family so parents and carers are requested to stay and enjoy the creative fun alongside the children. We have a small seating area and toys within the workshop for those families with younger children and babies.
Please note that many of the sessions use paint and glue. While we have aprons available (including adult sizes), we cannot guarantee full coverage!

Our clothes and toys shop will be open as usual. Browse through our quality pre-loved stock while the children play 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.
Based at 41 Burleigh Street, Make Do & Grow is 2 minutes walk from Govan tube and bus station and there is on street parking available.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Christmas Countdown Workshops are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
