It's Thursday. You have shopping to do, but no babysitter. So, you bring your kids out with you. You make a plan of what you need to get before you get to the mall. How bad can it be, right? As long as you stock up on snacks and don't go during nap time, you are all set. Or so you think. After three hours at the busy mall, the kids have started to slide downhill. Suddenly, your stash of snacks isn't as enticing as it was an hour ago. Kid #1 has started to whine about being bored, and kid #2 keeps pulling things off the shelf. You decide that you better end this trip quickly, so tell the kids just one more store (even though you had 2 more stores to go to). Big mistake. You make it to the line-up before it happens. You're almost done. But that one thought jinxes it. Kid #1 has a stage 3 meltdown about who knows what, while kid #2 knocks over an entire display of Frozen paraphenelia. Embarassed, you beeline it out of the store to your car, leaving your pile of items to purchase sitting there on the floor. You'll just have to come back another day.
Now, picture this:
It's Thursday. You have shopping to do, and no babysitter. You make a plan of what you need to get before you get to the mall. When you arrive at West Edmonton Mall, you notice your kids are already starting to get antsy. Enter Santa's Workshop. Instead of carting them around from store to store, you stop at Santa's Workshop. You pay and leave them with the qualified and caring staff and go about completing your shopping plan. You make it to every single store in your plan, even The Disney Store. You get every single item on your list, even that darn elusive Elsa doll. And you finish it in record time: 2 hours. After 2 child-free hours, you return to Santa's Workshop. You walk in to see your kids playing and laughing. They come running to you when they see you and can't stop talking about all the fun they had. They show you the great Christmas crafts they made and tell you about the new songs they learned. You all leave with a smile, happy.
Finally, picture this:
It's Friday. You have no shopping to do because you finished it yesterday after utilizing Santa's Workshop at West Edmonton Mall. Your kids haven't stopped talking about it. You decide you want to know all about this great service, so you go back to the mall. But this time, you're not going to shop. You enter Santa's Workshop together and participate in the great programs being offered together. You watch as your child sings holiday songs and does a fun Christmas craft. Maybe you help them, maybe you sit back and watch them interact with the Santa's Workshop elves. Then, you play with them during Elf's Playtime. Maybe you play with the kinetic sand, maybe you write a letter to Santa, maybe you play with the train table or dress up, maybe you build blocks or "cook" at the kitchen. Or maybe you just watch as they play and interact with the other kids. You leave after an hour or two, all happy with some energy released. The best part of this? It was all free. Yes, that's right. You just attended Santa's Workshop for free.
