Holiday Clubs

During school holidays, we run a Holiday Club where children ages 5-12 come and build with us for the whole day!

What we offer

Holiday Clubs are suitable for children ages 5-12 where we work on two led constructions per day. The children will also have plenty of time to work on and explore their own designs. Snacks are provided but please bring in a healthy lunch.

What should my child bring?

We provide a morning snack (croissant/pain au chocolat or brioche, and some fruit), but please pack a healthy and balanced lunch as well as water for your child.

Please ensure your child wears comfortable clothes and have a full change of clothes in their bag. We always play outside after lunch and the play area can get muddy if it has been raining. We like to keep the hall and equipment clean and encourage children to change if they are muddy.

We also ask for children to be in socks indoors and to bring outdoor shoes (crocs/ wellies/ trainers for outside are perfect)
– In the summer, please pack a sun hat, suncream, extra water.
– In the winter, please pack suitable warm clothing, wellies and don’t forget a change of clothes!

We have hand sanitiser in the hall but if you would like to bring your own, that is fine.

Are the children really demolishing their construction?

Absolutely!
The children have been waiting for this with great anticipation. Imagine thousands of planks coming down in seconds as a giant domino run. It is so fascinating to watch!

Can I see what my child has been building during the day?

Absolutely, what makes us special is that we create a WhatsApp group and send pictures to parents, so that you can see exactly what your little ones have created.

We also open the doors to parents 15 min before the end of the session so that they can admire the finished construction.

What if it is my child’s first time?

At KAPLA Clubs, we are used to working with children and we understand that it can be difficult for children (and parents) to attend a setting for the first time. We have an excellent caring team and our priority is to make each child feel comfortable. We have children attending from all around Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. We even have children attending from Suffolk and Essex!

Your child will quickly make new friends and as the groups are kept small and we have a very organised timetable, it is not as overwhelming for children. As a mum myself, I do make sure each child is happy, had enough to drink and eat and is enjoying their day with us

What if my child is ill and cannot attend or I want to cancel?

Please let us know if your child is unable to attend and if we have children on the waiting list, we will offer your space and you will be able to get a refund.

If we cannot refill the space, we cannot offer a refund but you are more than welcome to find someone to take your place, just pass on our details to the new parent so that we can take the necessary information.

My children’s school would love that, how can I organise a KAPLA Clubs workshop for my school?

We currently offer amazing STEAM workshops for primary schools all over the UK, prices are from £5 per child.  Please contact us for more details or visit the School Workshop section. We also work with Secondary Schools, Nurseries and Preschools.

Testimonials

The children absolutely loved the sessions and it was very impressive to see all year groups from Reception to Year 6 engaged in such a creative, collaborative project with so many links across the curriculum. Not only did they employ their STEM skills to enable them to create a stable structure, but it also encouraged high levels of concentration, perseverance and resilience along with teamwork, communication skills and so much more.

One of our most popular sessions at Home Ed Hub Club is when Jennifer brings her boxes of Kapla. With gentle, professional guidance even the most reluctant of builders is soon making marvellous creations. It is wonderful to watch the thought and imagination that goes into this hands on activity and how engrossed the children become. At the end of the session, once the children have enjoyed knocking over their builds and clearing away the pieces, they always leave the room satisfied and happy. I can not recommend Jennifer and her Kapla sessions highly enough.

Our son Thomas is always excited when there’s an afternoon KAPLA club at his school. He loves construction and creativity, so this is of course the ideal activity. However, these sessions are also special because they involve collaborative work among children of different ages. Thomas enjoys following the older kids and helping newcomers by explaining the patterns that he has learned.

My daughter had a KAPLA party for her 7th birthday. Jennifer had 2 teams building giraffes and I was amazed to see how focused the children were and their excitement as the giraffes formed before their eyes. The proud children wanted to keep their construction intact to show their parents at pick up time, who were equally impressed. Jennifer kept the children enthralled and entertained making my job super easy and it an enjoyable party for all!

KAPLA planks are amazing! They really bring out my children’s creative building skills. Jennifer is great at setting the scene and helping the construction grow. I would really recommend getting involved.


Mrs I. Rawlinson


My son decided on a KAPLA Clubs party after doing a one off after school club of KAPLA building, which he loved. Jennifer came 30 minutes before the party to set up and discuss with the birthday boy what to build. I wasn’t sure how focused eight 6 year olds would be but the kids loved building and didn’t stop until it was time to pack up! Jennifer was so patient and guided the children on how to build and made sure everyone was engaged. I was amazed by the end result and how much they managed to build, without anything falling over either! All the kids thoroughly enjoyed it, especially at the end when they broke it all down. I would highly recommend Jennifer and KAPLA Clubs for a unique birthday party.
