Entertain the Kids With Hobbycraft’s Daily Online Kids Craft Club
To help keep children entertained Hobbycraft has launched an online version of its popular Kid’s Craft Club – ‘Daily Kids Craft Club’ which will be a video tutorial posted at 11am on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and includes crafting challenges and projects to keep mini-makers busy.
Each day, a new exciting theme will be posted across the social media channels along with a ‘how to guide’ on the Hobbycraft ‘Ideas’ hub.
The #KidsCraftClub will take place Monday to Saturday with a re-cap of the week on Sunday; one of the Hobbycraft makers will take you through a daily challenge with a specific theme. This gives parents the chance to steer the theme to suit whatever materials and crafting products they have at home.
The classes will keep children entertained for a couple of hours and gives them a chance to learn a new crafting skill and get creative… Hobbycraft will release a weekly schedule on its ‘Ideas’ hub ‘to allow parents to prepare for what craft is going to be on the rota each day. Examples of themes include nature, under the sea, family portraits, space, origami, animal, pom-pom making and much more… watch this space!
Katherine Paterson, Customer Director at Hobbycraft: “Getting crafty and creative is a great way to keep the kids entertained and while people are at home and many are juggling children and working from home, we want to help. Our online Kid’s Craft Club will be focused on a theme rather than a specific project so that even more children can get involved using whatever materials they have at home. Our in store Kid’s Craft Club has been a huge success and we hope this online version will be too.
All of Hobbycraft’s posts will include #KidsCraftClub and encourage viewers to share content. Here are a few examples from this week:
