7 November 2016

We have lots of fun activities over the Christmas period for children (and adults!) to enjoy.

The Big Wrap
Get crafty and creative in The Pod and Pod2 soft play centres this Christmas for The Big Wrap at YMCA Hawker in Kingston and YMCA Wimbledon, Mon to Sunday 1-19 December. Think glitter, baubles, reindeers and snowmen  –  we want your children’s imaginations to run wild as they make gorgeous  gift wrap!  But it’s no ordinary gift wrap, it’s extra special as it will be used for a present  for a child in need.

Late Night Bounce and Play
If you’re short of time and need to buy presents, why not take advantage of our Late Night Bounce and Play on a Thursday evening in The Pod? We’ll be opening our doors for children every Thursday evening until 22 December, 6pm-9pm.  As children must be supervised by an adult, why not hook up with a few friends and take it in turns to have a free shopping night?  You can shop and relax, while your child burns off energy, ready for bed.  Book in advance to ensure your child’s place on 020 8296 9747.

Gift idea – Book of Pod tickets
And if you’re being asked by relatives for gift ideas for your little ones we have the answer – a Book of Pod tickets.  No more unwanted plastic toys and the endless search for batteries! The Book of Pod tickets are great value.  For The Pod at YMCA Hawker, you can buy 5 plays for £18 or £23 (ages 1-4 or 5-11; valid for 6 months) or 10 plays for £37 or £47 (ages 1-4 or 5-11; valid for 12 months). For Pod2 at YMCA Wimbledon,  you can buy 5 plays for £17.50 (ages 6 months-3) or £20 (ages 4-8) or 10 plays for £30 (ages 6 months-3) or £35 (ages 4-8). Certainly a gift that keeps on giving!

Fun Fancy Dress Party at Pod2, YMCA Wimbledon
At Pod2 at YMCA Wimbledon on Friday 16 December  there will be a fun Fancy Dress Party – dig out your best elf, santa and fairy costumes from the dressing up box (or whatever your child loves most!) Children can enjoy a special Christmas lunch box, 2 hours of soft play and Christmas games, sessions starting at 9.30am, 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm at just £8.00 per child.

Kids Cake & Carol Bake, YMCA Hawker, Kingston
The children who attend our afterschool and breakfast clubs at YMCA Hawker will be hosting a Cake and Carol Bake on Thursday 15 December, so come along to support them and help raise funds for play equipment. Remember the words to Hark the Herald Angels sing?
