Back by popular demand, Creative Haven YXE will host another Holiday edition of Kids Craft. Homemade gifts from my son on Christmas morning is one of my favorite things. Made even better when the craft is amazing, and I can see the pride on his little face that he created it and kept it a secret until Christmas morning. We here at Creative Haven YXE want to share this feeling with Saskatoon parents. We are offering a special Kids Create Workshop. Children ages 5 and up are invited to come to Creative Haven YXE and make some holiday gifts. Bring your child for a 1 and a half hour creative experience they will love. And you will love the gift you get on Christmas morning.

Children will get to choose from are large selection of kid’s crafts including paintings, signs, albums and much more. Each child will create 2 projects during the workshop. Creative Haven YXE elves will then wrap the gifts and have them ready to be picked up 2 days later.

Choose the session that works best for you.
11:00am to 12:30pm
2:00pm to 3:30pm

Parents are welcome to stay with their kids or drop them off and go get some holiday shopping done. Or maybe just have a quick cup of coffee.
