Our Little Caravan - Vintage Handmade Crafts - Craft Workshops - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We’re on the home stretch now, only a couple of  more days of school to go and then HOLIDAYS!! We’re looking forward to a long lazy summer holiday, but first…a little thing called ‘Christmas’.

We will be open all this week from 7am-3pm…but this Saturday 24th Dec from 8-3 we have a Children’s Christmas Event with plenty of FREE and LOW COST activities planned for the kiddos! (so you can browse in peace!)

You can cover a box with washi tape and fill it with reindeer food!

Decorate a delicious Christmas cookie with lollies!

Make your own star headband that blinks and lights up at night!

Make shrinky dink snowflakes!

We’re bringing back the water beads, and will have some free water play activities outside for children.

And of course…our always popular, making glass tiled pendants in Mabel the caravan.  Special offer for newsletter subscribers- Make one…and make another one for free. $10 (for 2)

See you there!

My Little Caravan will be closed for activities from Dec 26th- and will reopen from Wednesday 18th January…with workshops for our school holiday program including: mini lands, mini hoops, polymer clay fun and even…terrariums for kids!! All the details will be in our January newsletter.

…in the meantime, are there any mad knitters or crocheters out there?  Want a holiday project that will help us get the word out about Our Little Caravan and Inchmeal Cafe’s existence? Then read on…

We have been given the go-ahead by the City of Monash, to have a ‘blue blade’ sign at the end of Westerfield Dve…and while this is awesome, and we are grateful to have a sign at all…we thought it needed to have something a little more ‘attention grabbing’.  So we’re going to YARN BOMB the sign post! Here’s how you can help.  

A yarn bomb is form of street art where yarn in any form (knit, crochet, latch hook, cross stitch, amigurumi, or simply wrapped) is attached to an object in the public environment.

The street pole is 10cm in diameter, so if you are keen to create a piece of yarn art to join in our community project, we’d love you to bring it into the shop between the 18th- 28th January and we will fix it together and get yarnbombing!  (Look out City of Monash…maybe this is just the beginning of our yarn bombing escapades?!) 

Happy Christmas everyone! And may your 2017 be a wonderful one!
