Educraft and Wyre Council have teamed up this summer to support the Government’s “HAF” (Holiday Activities and Food) Programme.

Our free, four day holiday clubs feature coding, craft and video game design. They are exclusively for children and young people aged between 8 and 14 who receive benefit related free school meals. 

Attendees will receive a free, healthy plant-based hot lunch together with healthy snacks and refreshments throughout the day.

This 2 day activity runs from 9am-5pm on 7th to 10th August at Baines Endowed Primary School in Thornton-Cleveleys.

Bookings will go live soon and here are just some of the exciting activities we have lined up…

Pixel Dash – A themed retro game design workshop where you get to design graphics and levels using our ‘Pixel Dash’ game engine. Unleash your creativity to create pixel art graphics and animations, design taxing levels and then make coding modifications to the game engine.

Further Activities

Beadcraft – creating unique or pre-designed pixel sprites using fuse-beads and turning them into beautiful key-rings or jewellery to take home.

Papercraft – build paper models of classic computers or even a cool Minecraft diorama.

Physical Activity – Continuing the video game theme, our physical activity session lets you dance along to songs like the Super Mario theme and the Pac-man dance, or follow choreographed lightsaber sequences in time to music.

Video Games – Arcade classics from the early 1980s including Pac Man, Frogger and Space Invaders. Classic Nintendo games including the original Super Mario Brothers. Classic SEGA games, including the original version of Sonic the Hedgehog. Or unleash your creativity on Minecraft – Pi Edition.

Free Food (and healthy eating discussion) – A nutritious, locally prepared plant-based lunch and an informative and interactive talk about the benefits of a plant-based diet.

Board Games – a wide selection of board games are available that help develop thinking abilities and life skills.
