Elves Workshop

Come and help one of Santa’s Elves make Christmas presents for some of our animals. The session will begin in our grotto with different stations for children to make presents before heading off on a guided tour around the Zoo delivering the presents as we go. For most of the animals the children will be able to throw their presents over the fence to the animals, those without open tops the elf will take the presents in so they can still see their presents being enjoyed. This activity is aimed at 2 – 8-year-olds but children of all ages are welcome along but may need help if younger or find themselves finishing before the others if they are older. 

This encounter is suitable for 2 – 8 year-olds.

Children will be able to throw their presents in for most of the animals however they will not be able to enter any of the animal enclosures.
