Holiday Programme FAQ’s

What craft activities options does The Make Company supply?

We have a wide range of craft activities in our portfolio to inspire our clients, which can be accessed <here>. But if you have any specific requirements, we are more than happy to develop bespoke craft activities that achieve your objectives.

In addition, all of our craft activities are pre-packaged in a way that makes individual session preparation & cleaning really straightforward.

In addition to supplying craft activities, what services does The Make Company provide?

Delivering craft events require planning, setup, staffing, graphics, advertising and a range of other activities. The Make Company is able to run these events entirely, making them completely stress-free for our clients. But we are also completely flexible and can work with you to deliver support where it matters most.

What staffing options does The Make Company provide?

We can deliver the craft activities to your shopping mall leaving you to run the event, we can train and manage your staff during the event, or we can supply local Make co-ordinators to run the event for you.

We maintain police clearance checks for all of our staff, and many of our staff are from child learning backgrounds.

What is included in a temporary craft zone installation provided by The Make Company?

Activation setup costs are often extremely expensive and can require extensive time to organise. In our experience, shopping malls also often have limited storage onsite meaning they are unable to invest in the equipment required to run activations. We are able to organise all of this for you with our cost-effective setup options.

Our craft zone setup can be customised to meet your requirements, but generally our craft zone requires 30-35m2 of floor space and works well when placed in central zones that are assigned for temporary activations.

Our standard setup includes astroturf, white picked fencing, craft tables & seating for up to 20 kids, a check-in desk, a themed backdrop and signage advertising session times.

Are craft sessions run at scheduled times, or can they be run as drop-in sessions?

We offer a range of options to accommodate your requirements and can run events at scheduled times, as drop-in sessions across a defined time slot or a combination of both. If you choose to run the event at scheduled times, we offer the added benefit of enabling customers to pre-book onto a specific session.

The added benefit of pre-booking is that it encourages customers to plan a visit to the mall in advance, it ensures that they are guaranteed a slot, and it provides the mall with the opportunity to capture customer information and engage early through asking a series of key marketing questions during the booking process.

What advertising do you recommend in order to engage customers and ensure a strong take up?

With 5 years of experience in running craft events, we find that the most effective advertising is often the most affordable. We would love to discuss our thoughts on what works best. Our graphics designer can also work with you to prepare digital advertising and social media artwork that meets your branding requirements, or create other fun marketing initiatives that will captivate parents and children alike.

How do I know if my booking was successful, and if my child’s space has been confirmed?

The website will only allow you to make a booking if a space is available for the session you have selected. Once your booking is complete, the website will display a confirmation notice and you will receive an automated email confirming your booking, therefore it is important that you correctly input your contact details.

What does The Make Company charge to run an event?

We want our clients to achieve the correct balance between convenience and cost and will work within your parameters to ensure that we deliver an event that is within budget. Our pricing starts at $xxx per day (excl GST), which includes 1 staff member supplied by The Make Company.

How can The Make Company assist to support charitable causes?

The Make Company loves making a difference in the community. We already support a number of meaningful charitable causes locally and abroad through regular donations and by supplying free craft kits and supplies. The Make Company has made a difference at Rancho la Hermosa, and orphanage in Mexico and Cholmondeley Children’s Centre in Christchurch.

We attended the kids craft today at Dress-Smart and it was absolutely FANTASTIC! We have been to several Make company events and without fail they have all been amazing products and such friendly and helpful staff! Thanks so much, my boys were stoked with what they made!
