Welcome to Children's Scrapstore. We are a small charity dedicated to help improve play and creative opportunities for children, young people and adults. With our main store based in Bristol and a small satellite store in Weston Super Mare we offer:
We have a satellite store in Weston-super-Mare run by staff and volunteers which has a small Scrapstore and ArtShop and runs some events. Membership is valid in both stores.
We offer a range of participatory training programmes and consultancy to schools and early years settings advocating and supporting the development of play.
We offer a wide range of resources and services to schools and Early Years settings such as Teachers Nights, CPD Training, Scrapstore PlayPods or educational visits for curriculum sessions.
We run a dynamic programme of play and creative sessions for children, families and adults in our Scrapstores and in the community. Our PlayRoom is also available to hire for birthday parties and meetings or events.
Offers a massive range and variety of arts and crafts materials and is open to the public as well as our members. All of our products are competitively priced with all profits going straight back into Scrapstore.
