• Kraftworks!


    The Kraftworks for Kids program has been designed from the ground up to engage creative children. The activities that we offer all encourage patience, persistence, and practical skills. They are both challenging and entertaining.

    All of our activities are structured around Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced levels of capability. Our Leaders are trained to ensure that your child receives the right amount of guidance for their level of ability.

  • Activities


    At Kraftworks for Kids all of our activities are available every day at each of our locations. If your child is interested in any of the activities that we offer then we have the Leaders and the kits to ensure they have fun!

    Our main activities include Figurine Painting, Jewellery Making, Plasterkraft, Scale Modelling, and Stitchery. Any spare time is occupied by Kumihimo and Origami. When we take a break we play awesome boardgames.

  • Fun!


    We developed the school holiday program that we wanted our children to attend. A program for creative kids that would encourage their creativity as well as develop their practical skills while having fun with their friends.

    It is important to us that kids attending the program have fun. If they are having fun then they are engaged by the activities. If they are engaged by the activities then they are learning new skills and developing existing ones.

Rewards Program

Our rewards program is a thank-you to students for their participation in our Kraftworks for Kids school holiday program. The Rewards Catalogue contains some of the equipment and consummables that we use in the program (such as paint and paint brushes) as well as a variety of kits that are not used in the program and are not available anywhere else. We think this makes our Rewards Program special -- and we're certain that students will as well.

Items in the Rewards Catalogue have a value in Rewards Points. Students are able to earn Rewards Points in a variety of ways. If a student does something that makes a Leader's task easier then that is guaranteed to earn a bunch of Points. They earn points if they bring a sibling to Kraftworks, or if they bring a friend who hasn't been to Kraftworks before, or even if they attend for more than one day during the school holidays.

Join us on Twitter - and see what your child is making

We want parents to be able to see what their child is up to while they are at Kraftworks. If you follow us on Twitter then during the Session you will see periodic photographs of what your child is up to. If you are not on Twitter you can always take a look in our Gallery on this website - as we post the same images there at the end of the day.

Looking for someone to host your child's birthday party? Keen to avoid the preparation at home - and the clean upafterwards?

We enjoy running children's parties. We can do this during the school term at Cheltenham. The cost is $20 per child with a minimum fee of $200.oo. The Jewellery Making and Plasterkraft activities are available, with modified kits specifically designed to be completed in ninety minutes. That leaves a further thirty minutes for food and drink (and clean-up for us). Times start at 1:00 and 3:15, Saturday and Sunday.

If you really want your birthday party to run during the school holidays then that can be done at any of our locations by requesting exclusive access to a Morning or Afternoon Session. For 15 children or less that costs $525.oo, and for each additional child it costs a further $35. By doing this you have full access to our entire program of activities for a three hour block, starting at 9:00 or at 1:00 weekdays. It is important to book early for this as slots become unavailable if we have bookings for the school holiday program.

Kraftworks for Kids - Let's get the party started!


Are you planning a corporate event? If attendees have children we have the perfect program to keep the kids entertained while their parents attend your event.

We have one, two, three, and four hour programs that will take children aged between eight and fourteen through one or two of our activities (depending on the amount of time available). Whether it is a school holiday program for a shopping centre, a child minding program for a trade convention, or something to keep the kids occupied on a cruise ship or at a resort we have the perfect program for you.

It's an all too common situation...
The school holidays are upon you and nothing is organized for the kids!

The Kraftworks for Kids program was developed for kids who are too old for child-minding but too young to be left home alone. Creative kids, for whom sport isn't necessarily their number one activity. Kids who prefer working and playing in small groups rather than large ones. We selected five activities that are easy enough to learn the basics but are also complicated enough to be enjoyed throughout a lifetime. We then developed a program around each activity so that we had Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced lessons in each of those activities.

We ensure that each Leader in our program is responsible for at most five kids. This ensures that every child receives the attention they need to learn and develop their skills. It also helps them to get to know their Leader and the other handful of children working in the group.

We take a break from our activities during morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea. During these breaks we play boardgames. The Leader is there to explain the rules when necessary and there's not much in life that is more satisfying for a child than beating an adult at a game. Boardgames are more fun than computer games!

Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is "timing" it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.
