Everybody Freeze it's Anna and Elsa!

Elsa and Anna joined the staff at Startpoint Coffee shop bringing Disney magic and sparkle to the Christmas light switch on at Woodley this weekend. 




We made dashing Sven's and dancing Anna and Elsa's using a vibrating motor, a paper cup, a coin cell, and some craft materials. 




























No time to come to an event then download one of our activity sheets and do it yourself at home. See our latest activities.
