Ikea Dublin to host free spook-tacular arts and crafts events for kids this miderm

Looking for ways to keep the kids busy next week?

Ikea's has got your back.

The Swedish furniture giant's flagship store in Ballymun will be hosting free arts and crafts workshops for midterm next week – and TBH, they sound like the best fun!

14 unique and free workshops will take place across the midterm break, from the 26th – 29th October, where a variety of arts and crafts events will engage and inspire your little ones. As for what will go down – think wickedly wild colouring, painting paper pumpkin lanterns, customising their own trick or treat bags and using PYSSLA Beads to create their very own zombie!

“We’re thrilled to be able to bring back IKEA Family events to our Ballymun store, says IKEA Ballymun Store Manager, Martyn Allan.

"Our team has designed a fun and engaging programme, which includes painting, colouring, beading and lots more for the whole family to enjoy together. Overall, we hope the events provide some welcome relief for parents who want a chance to not only explore our store, but also create and share special moments with their children during the holidays.”
