Children across the county made the most of their time off school by enjoying half term family fun last week.

In celebration of the release of the highly-anticipated film, Sing, High Wycombe’s Eden Shopping Centre welcomed promising performers throughout the week to enjoy crafts and music.

The centre’s popular soft play area, Kid’s Corner, got a musical makeover as it played host to arts and crafts events, including microphone making and decorating.

The youngsters recreated their favourite characters from the film with wooden spoon puppets and made sure they dazzled in the spotlight with sparkly glitter tattoos.

Meanwhile, in Beaconsfield, teenagers got messy in the kitchen with a day full of Valentine’s baking on February 14.

Smart Raspberry Cooking School taught the budding bakers how to cook a series of impressive Valentine’s recipes, including tomato and basil soup with heart croutons, red velvet cupcakes and jammy Valentine’s biscuits at Beaconsfield High School in Wattleton Road.
