Now that December is here we are fully in the countdown to Christmas! We have already done our Santa visit and now we have been to Winter Woodland at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts!
Winter Woodland is a fun craft and song session on Saturday and Sundays running for the rest of December!
We were booked in for the 10am opening session on December the first! Once we got into the centre we made our way up to level two via the glass lifts. James was absolutely loving the view up the river from the lift! Once we got up we were greeted by some elves who told us all about how they sort all the Christmas cards and make sure they get to where they are going!
We were then invited over to the craft area to start making some Christmas decorations based on woodland animals! Freddie at this point had got very upset and scared by the people dressed up as elves that daddy tried to calm him down while mummy did some crafting with James who was really enthusiastic! Eventually Freddie came and sat on my knee and calmed right down when he found a glue stick and some googly eyes and he had fun with them!
James had such a good time making a fox and a robin and even an erm alien! Mummy made a fox with a bit of help from Freddie!
Once we had finished crafting it was time for some hot chocolate and marshmallows while
we helped to write a 12 days of christmas woodland animals song! There was also a room to the side which had bubble lights and plastic ice blocks and fake snowballs in! James loved this snow room and him and Freddie had so much fun launching snowballs at Daddy!
