With Christmas almost here you're probably thinking about how you’ll entertain the kids during the festive season. Luckily, we have a whole festive wonderland all under one roof at Imagine That with plenty of Christmas activities for the most magical Christmas yet! From a traditional grotto, to Christmas themed science workshops, we’re hosting the biggest Christmas events for kids in Liverpool.
Here’s what we’ve got planned.
Christmas events for kids at Imagine That: Every weekend in December, plus December 20th and 21st
Winter Snow Garden with Santa’s Grotto
Every child’s favourite activity is a visit from Santa himself and where better to visit him than in the cosy winter lodge at Imagine That. This year we’ve taken our grotto outdoors and offering the most personalised Santa visit yet! Enjoy a flurry of snow and festive activities in the winter garden before your magical grotto visit.
To really make your child feel special we’re providing the adults with a ‘cheat sheet’. Fill in the sheet with details of your child’s age, school, hobbies and anything you think they’d like to hear from Santa. You can even request Santa to give some good behaviour advice like ‘be nice to your sister’ or ‘go to bed on time’ and we’re certain they’ll listen!
Like every traditional grotto, the child finds out if they’re on the naughty or nice list, and to make it more realistic we have a nice table full of amazing gifts and a naughty table full of coal, but don’t worry no child is on the naughty list at Imagine That!

Christmas Workshops
*Please see below details of how our workshops run 
We love art and crafts here at Imagine That and we’ve got some fantastically festive craft activities planned.  They can make and decorate their very own Christmas Eve box and fill it with handmade crafts at our craft, science and edible treat workshops.

Craft workshops
Christmas baubles, magic reindeer food, Christmas plaques, flowers and magnets which make perfect gifts for family members.

Christmas Science Workshops 
It wouldn’t be Imagine That without some amazing science experiments, so to follow tradition we’re hosting a science workshop all themed around Christmas. We’re planning some awe-inspiring experiments including never-melting snow, snowflake bath bombs and a particular favourite amongst the little ones, glitter sparkle slime! Watch a fantastic science show, learn in the process and try out the experiments for yourself.

Edible Christmas Treats
After all these activities your child will have surely worked up an appetite, so we’re offering another activity that involves some edible sweet treats. The kids have the opportunity to make and take away these treats including melting snowman cookies, candy cane mice, hot chocolate reindeer canes, and marshmallow snowmen.  

Book your Christmas at Imagine That tickets today!
Our Christmas activities run every weekend until December  23rd .  The grotto will also be open certain days midweek and there will be a selection of Christmas crafts and workshops but Christmas Eve boxes will only be available at our special toddler Christmas days plus weekends of course. Our events book up fast so make sure your child doesn’t miss out on all the festive fun!
**We have over 20 festive workshops in total each day at weekends and each workshop is only offered once per day so unless you come for the whole day there will be some workshops you will miss :( To ensure all workshops are done we do run to a strict timetable.

We’ve got a couple of packages available including:
Basic package: £12.95 includes admission and Christmas Eve Box,

Santa package: £17.95 includes Santa visit and gift
Both packages include one free adult and additional adults are £4.95
We’re here to make your child’s Christmas magical and memorable so give us a call on 0151 228 2175 to book your tickets for Christmas at Imagine That!
