Children have been having a really wild time in The Mall Blackburn as part of its free programme of activities this Easter.

Little artists have been busy creating snake mobiles and wild animal masks, with more crafting sessions to come including 3d lizards, parrot puppets and elephant blowers.

Wild animals will descend on The Mall on Friday 14th April, when children can meet baby animal puppets including a chimp, a sloth, a dodo and a saber tooth tiger or get up close and personal with larger animals such as a mammoth, a gorilla, an orangutan, a panda and a tortoise.

Schedule of really wild activities:
Wednesday 12th - 3D lizard model workshop
Thursday 13th - Parrot puppet workshop
Friday 14th - Wild animals meet and greet
Saturday 15th - Elephant blower workshop

Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “Our free Easter activities have been super busy so far - with lots more fun set for the days ahead!

“It has been lovely seeing children wearing their wild animal masks today, everyone has done a great job!

“We’re really looking forward to seeing all the other fabulous models and crafts this week and, of course, we cannot wait to welcome some amazing animals on Friday!”

Activities are taking place every day from 11am until 4pm in the unit between Poundbakery and Muffin Break. The event is free of charge and further information can be found at:
