EMC News – Santa Claus will be coming to Perth in the annual parade on Dec. 1, but there will be some little elves hard at work that day as well.
Maple Key Day Camp will be hosting their fourth annual Santa’s Workshop for children ages four to 12, who will be busy elves for a day making gifts for their friends or family members.
“We set up a series of gift making stations, with supplies and a staff helper at each one,” says Kristen Widenmaier, owner and director of Maple Key Day Camp. “The kids get to go around to each one and learn unique crafts that can then be given as gifts.”
The elves are free to create at their own speed, moving from station to station to create their special gifts.
The day is rounded out with a few holiday games, a pizza lunch, snacks, ornament craft, and of course a gift wrapping and card making station.
What is an exciting day for the children is also great for parents. “Most of the parents take this opportunity to go Christmas shopping while the kids are with us,” Widenmaier says, “then they pick them up in time for the parade.”
Santa’s Workshop is being held on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Church in Perth. Spaces are still available, and advance registration is required. For more information please go to www.maplekeydaycamp.com or call (613) 464-2468.
