Square Peg Carnival for Kids

Imagination will take you everywhere with Square Pegs steering the journey, bringing a day of workshops, activities and stalls to the heart of Liverpool’s creative hub. The creative collaboration which began with writing for children, are celebrating their first book, ‘Lula’s Magic Sister’ by bringing a day of workshops and activities to Constellations, in art, performance and writing for little artists. Whatever age, they got it covered. While ‘the turntables might wobble’ little beastie boys and girls won’t be put off as they grab a soul tambourine and shake it on down to interactive kid-friendly hip-hop, soul, funk and jazz. Glitter, and shine will spark imagination in the blanket fort; the perfect snuggly setting for immersive storytelling. And what with everything from painting, craft and screen printing for mini-Picassos to multi-sensory circus skills’ workshops for the darer-devils, no creative stone is left unturned. If art ain’t their thing, then allow Square Pegs to unleash the inner wild child with natural den building, the perfect activity for problem solvers. After a session of pure creativity, young minds can unwind and enjoy a flick through their modern and vintage library, or continue the role play with Peaches and Cream face painting, or by dressing up in Square Pegs’ theatre garb. Not only will parents delight in seeing their little ones learning through play, but they’ll also enjoy a peruse around the child-centred artisan stalls selling special clothes, toys and gifts for special little people. Whatever their artistic preference, the stage is set for a day of magic, inspiring young minds through the arts. The event is free but some activities carry a small charge, operating on a first come, first serve basis. At the close of day the magic doesn’t have to be forgotten with professional snapshotter, Richard Deane on hand to catch little ones at their best. Constellations, 37-39 Greenland Street, Liverpool
