Christmas is a few weeks away. As children around the world wait dotingly for Santa Claus to bring them gifts, his red underpants go missing! What will Santa do now? “This story always cracks kids up,” says Kripa Kotak, founder of Hullabaloo Children’s Studio. The new space in Juhu, which Kotak likes to call a playground for children’s brains, is all set to host a four-session workshop for kids to get their tiny, little hands all geared up well in time for Xmas, starting today.

“Christmas is a festival of giving. Our workshop aims at showing kids how to make the most of the festival by giving gifts to their loved ones,” Kotak remarks. Taking us through the workshop, she tells us that on the first two days, the kids will learn to make Christmas lanterns, snowmen and DIY Santa ornaments to decorate their personal trees. Day three will feature a storytelling session that will shed light on the importance of the celebration as a festival of giving, and find a solution to the missing underpants that left the main character of the festivity in a quandary. “On that note, the kids will move on to making a gift for their mother [a DIY photo frame carrying a picture of the child and the mom, and a reindeer gift bag],” she says, adding that the fourth day will be a Christmas party.

“At the party, kids will get their own mini-Christmas trees, with string lights and ornaments to decorate it. They will also be given surprise gifts hidden under the tree; followed by DIY cookie boxes for them to decorate the cookies with icing and sprinkles,” she informs. During the two-hour weekly sessions, the kids will also enter A Christmas Carol world of their own. “Each of these sessions will be followed by a singing lesson by Miss Anna [from the studio’s Acoustic Classroom], where they will learn classic Christmas songs like Santa Claus is coming to town and Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer, among others, and perform it at the Christmas party,” Kotak adds.

Kotak will host two batches over four sessions. The first batch starts today, and the other one will begin on Friday. While these will take place once a week, she also has provisions for kids who might not be able to make it during the week. “We have planned one-off workshops on Saturdays, starting this week, that will follow a similar routine and even have an adult and kid session, where they will craft Christmas essentials together,” she signs off on a cheery note.
