With December now underway, the Christown Spectrum Mall, located at 17th Avenue and Bethany Home Road, will host its third-annual “Christown Cringle’s Workshop” every weekend from 12-4 p.m., through Sunday, Dec. 16, near Walmart and Harkins Theatres.
This is event provides an opportunity for free family fun.
Some of the features include an ornament decorating station for kids, where they can decorate the Santa’s Workshop tree that will be donated to a local senior center or children’s home. Children also can make an ornament to take home.
Other activities include: Santa’s Mailbox, where children can write their letters to Santa; a big-screen TV featuring classic holiday movies; a face painter; holiday characters like Frosty the Snowman; Christown Cringle Elves reading holiday stories; and so much more.
New for 2018, Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen will feature crafts with Mrs. Claus herself.
Visitors are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to place on Mrs. Claus’ shelf and toys to fill Santa’s Sleigh. Those who donate a toy or five cans or non-perishable food items will receive a $5 gift card to Harkins Movie Theatre. At the end of the holiday season, all items will be donated to a Phoenix food bank and a local children’s charity.
Each Saturday morning, the first 100 to visit the workshop will receive a Harkins Movie Theatre gift card valued at $5.
