LAKESIDE is looking for kids of all ages to take part in some monster fun this summer. Every year the shopping centre in Essex hosts a whole month of completely free kids activities designed to bring families together and entertain them over the holidays.
This year, the Little Lake Monsters are taking over at Lakeside and a giant monster maze will fill the Central Atrium. Lakeside’s young shoppers and their parents will be tasked with finding the monsters so they can be invited to Lakeside’s 21st birthday party.
There’s even a chance for shoppers to win a £500 Lakeside Gift Card by entering a special prize draw online or in centre. That’s bound to make summer even more fun!
In the first week, 1-7 August, the Lake Monsters will arrive and it’ll be down to the kids to find them. They’ll get to explore an underwater monster maze and play Hook-a-Monster!
In the second week, 8-14 August, the Space Monsters will land at Lakeside. Children will be able to go moon raking in the maze and find monster treasure in a waist-high sandpit filled with moon dust.
Between 15-21 August, the City Monsters will reach Lakeside and the bravest visitors will come face-to-face with real life ‘monsters’ including snakes, spiders and incredible komodo dragons. There’ll be an expert on-hand to teach the children about each one and they’ll have the chance to get up close and personal with them, if they dare.
Finally, from 22-31st August, the Cave Monsters will arrive. During this week kids will get creative and help the Lakeside team decorate the maze walls with crazy chalk cave drawings. There will also be ‘Monster Make It’ sessions where children will be able to create bones, footprints and teeth from modelling clay. Of course, they’ll get to take home everything they make.
And, on top of all of that, families can join the giant monster hunt around the shopping centre. Simply by following the monster footprints and special monster map, they’ll be rewarded with some very special offers.
Whether they visit for just one day, or every single day in August, it’s going to be a summer of fun that they’ll never forget!
