Lots for Tots Derby

Welcome to Issue 45...


Happy New Year! It’s cold outside and it can feel like there’s not much on but we’ve found lots of things for you and your little ones to get up to as the days gradually get longer and warmer! This issue has some great articles from Beccy from Buggy Babes on her fab fitness classes and Katie from Jumping Clay on how much learning and fun can be achieved with air drying modelling clay. Tracey from Music Time has increased the number of classes she does and now has afternoon classes in Willington and Allestree as well as Saturday classes in Hilton. See page 20 for details on how you could win 5 classes (tip: see her advert on page 35 for the answer!). Even MORE classes have been added to Whats on Weekly - check out Puddle Ducks, Relax Kids, 4 Strokes, Sing Song Stories, First Stage Dance and Little Singers! Take a look and see what groups are on near you! Please remember to tell people where you saw their advert as it helps me bring this information to you each quarter! The next issue will be your guide to Spring Time and Easter fun. So look out for it in early April. Laura Trethowan,

Jumping Clay Learn through play with air drying modelling clay Time flies. It’s hard to believe that Jumping Clay moved to Markeaton Craft Village in Markeaton Park over 2 years ago. They are excited to be growing and have gone from strength to strength and now occupy 3 rooms meaning more sessions at more times. If you haven’t heard of them, their name comes from their own award-winning bouncy air drying clay which is a very versatile material. It is mess free, non-toxic and very easy and fun to use. They offer lots of different services such as baby hand and foot prints, preschool story time, holiday workshops, all day holiday JumpingCAMP, birthday parties,

hen parties, 1-2-1 3D model making tuition, commissions (e.g. cake toppers) and being an arty bunch of people they also offer traditional art classes using a variety of paints & materials for adults and children. Their birthday parties are extremely popular with many families returning year after year with no two parties being the same as each one is based on a specially designed model/theme. They are also happy to come to your home/venue if you prefer. If you haven’t already checked them out they are well worth a visit. Drop-in prices start at £3.
