Families can enjoy a summer festival of fashion, food and fun at Braehead shopping centre.

An array of free activities are on offer to keep youngsters entertained during the school holidays every day, between 11am and 4pm, until Sunday, July 30 in the central atrium.

Just some of the events taking place include showing youngsters how to upcycle old t-shirts and bags with some funky designs. And they can also create their own bucket hat.

Those taking part can design and create their own macramé key chain or school bag accessory using sustainable cotton.

Braehead's green-fingered experts will show youngsters how to make a micro garden using old egg boxes, which can then be taken home to watch the plants grow.

There will also be workshops on how to make a 'flower bomb' and how to create a wildflower patch in your own garden.

Youngsters can also help create a mini town by making a model of their own house, street or favourite landmark with recycled cardboard at home, bringing it along to Braehead to add to its cardboard landscape.

There will be cardboard available at the Braehead Festival site to use to create a piece of the landscape.

Little bakers can decorate delicious sunflower chocolate cupcakes to take home to enjoy, while a bubbleologist will be creating potentially some of the biggest bubbles ever seen.

Peter Beagley, director of Braehead shopping centre, said: "These are just some of the many activities for families at Braehead this summer.

"If you're looking for something to do with the kids during the school holidays, you're sure to find an activity they will love at Braehead.

"It really does go to show that Braehead is all about fashion, food and fun."
