Half term update

Hello all. It’s been a frantic couple of days at Chicken and Frog. Happy frantic though, so I thought I’d take a moment to share some photographs. The first lot are from our Crazy Cooking sessions, where we made rocky road, chocolate lollies, marshmallow biscuits and fresh fruit smoothies. Many apologies to the parents who collected their sugar-filled children!




Next we used the brilliant Klutz book Gotcha Gadgets.

We created sneaky codes, disguised ourselves, made ID cards, solved a mystery and that was all before we had even opened our copies of Gotcha Gadgets!



And…yes, and! Today there was the Lego challenge. I’d like to give a big thank-you to the wonderful Andrea at Nickel Books, from whom I stole the idea. You can’t go wrong with Lego in my opinion. We also provided lots of Duplo for our younger guests,




I was really impressed with the great teamwork this afternoon, especially from a lovely group of boys who hadn’t met each other before today. Inspiring.

Bring on the drama workshop, our Teddy Bears’ Picnic and Russell’s drawing class to round the week off.


The independent children's bookshop and tuition centre in the heart of Brentwood, Essex. Owned and run by Mr Frog & Mrs Chicken (happily married book-nerds), with the sole aim of bringing high quality books and tuition to our community.
