Elf School

If your little ones love the holidays, now is the time to enroll them in Elf School at Princes Square Glasgow.

During the two-hour course, they will play festive games and get creative with arts and crafts before graduating as fully-fledged Christmas elves and they get to meet Father Christmas!

The classes will take place on Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm, the tuition is £25 per person.
