BUDDING bakers and makers are among those who have delighted in free fun and workshops during the first week of school holidays.

An Ocean Keys Shopping Centre spokeswoman said the cogs and gears workshop on fidget spinners was a big hit, as was the cup cake decorating.

The free fun continues next week with finger bun and cookie decorating, an allergy-friendly workshop (showing how to transform a party favourite into a sweet treat everyone can eat) and flower crown classes.

There’s also a lotions and potions workshop for budding beauty entrepreneurs with an opportunity for them to make a personalised vegan lip balm, create a business name and logo, then finish it all off with their own brand packaging.
