Children’s Second-hand Book Sale on November 20th

Make space, trade the used books your children have grown out of for new ones & support a charity!

Come browse for second-hand children books during our big sale on Friday 20th November, from 10:00 to 17:00.

Do you have children books you wish to sell ?

Here is how it works :

 

We look forward to helping A Step Ahead, to which we will donate our administrative fee of 0.50 CHF per book. Help us keep the logistics simple and stress-free by respecting the deadlines :

  • Bring the books you wish to sell at the Magical Cafe by November 17th. Only children books in good condition. All languages welcome!
  • Collect your unsold books by December 2nd, during normal opening hours. Or leave them as a donation for A Step Ahead 🙂
  • Collect your book vouchers by December 8th.

What does the charity A Step Ahead (ASA) do ?

ASA runs a literacy and English language learning program for children from favelas at Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. They also provide scholarships to children in desperate need to attend the daycare center.

About their program :

  • It teaches literacy skills from an early age and lays the foundation for further success in public school. It also increases the likelihood that the child will finish school.
  • It offers older students insights into the connection between education and improved employment prospects. And those who participate in structured after school programs are less likely to drop out of school and more likely to stay off the streets.

​An education that is relevant and purposeful has the power to change lives!

More info on www.asastepahead.com

Safety first !

We are very happy to hold this event for the second time! Of course, the organisation will be a bit different this year, due to the COVID-19.

To keep everything safe :

  • Max. 2 persons around the book table at the same time. Take a ticket & relax with a drink while you wait for your turn 🙂
  • Clean your hands before & after handling the books. Disinfectant gel is available.
  • Wear your mask as soon as you leave your table. Make sure to keep it on your nose and mouth when you browse through the books.

Thank you for your help and understanding 🙂

 

Halloween Party

Halloween party for kids in Basel

Join us for a wickedly fun but safe Halloween party!

Halloween has always been a big event at the Magical Cafe but with the virus, this year’s party will be a bit different: FUN but SAFE.

For the FUN side

There will be:

🎃 Fancy costumes: come dressed up in your favourite disguise!

🎃 Spooky obstacle course: crawl under spider chairs, walk on a witche’s broom… Sh! The rest is a secret!

🎃 Halloween crafts: decorate your trick or treat bag and make other scary decorations.

🎃 Cupcake workshop: make you own Halloween decoration on 3 of our famous buttercream topped cupcakes. Yum!

🎃 There will also be Halloween rhymes, monster dances, trick or treat and lots of sweet surprises!

For the SAFE side

Your safety is our main concern :

  • The Magical Cafe is privatised for the event. No booking = no access!
  • Children must be accompagnied by an adult.
  • The groups are kept small: 10 families max.
  • Each group will be split between the activities organised in the playroom and those in the Cafe : more space to keep safe distances.
  • The crafts & the cupcake workshop will take place at individual tables to avoid lots of people handling the same objects (scissors, glue, etc.).
  • Disinfectant gel is available at the entrance of the Cafe and the playroom.
  • All adults wear a mask. Don’t forget yours!
  • We have left enough time between sessions to air & disinfect and so groups don’t cross each other.

Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes in advance. We will welcome you at the door and take you to your reserved table. Feel free to order a drink to wait until the activity begins.

Practical info

➡️ Park your broomstick on October 31. Choose your session:
🎃 11.00 to noon – Fully booked
🎃 13.45 to 14.45 – Fully booked
🎃 15.30 to 16.30 – Fully booked

➡️ For children from 1,5 to 5 years old, accompanied by a parent. But older siblings are welcome (max. 7 years old).

➡️ Price : 30 CHF / child (includes all craft supplies, a box of 3 cupcakes, a filled trick or treat bag and a mini sweet surprise to keep)

➡️As places are limited, reservation and prepayment are necessary. Thank you for your understanding. Register at info@magicalcafe.ch.
 

Baby Signing Class

Discover baby signing, a wonderful way to communicate with your child, before he/she can talk!

Baby signing (using gestures based on British Sign Language) is a fun, social and educational activity for babies and their carers – and it can be shared by all members of the extended family.

With baby signing :

  • Families find that understanding and communication between babies and adults becomes easier and less frustrating.
  • Parents and babies gain confidence in their interactions and in their language and motor skills.
  • Everyone thrives on the social interaction, games and singing that is part of baby signing.

The Baby Signing covers key topics important to a family with a baby. These include useful every day signs (such as food, bed time, transport, health, weather…), lots of babies favourites (such as animals) and, so important, emotions and feelings.

We use song, rhymes, games and toys to make each session a fun and favourite part of the week. Plus, we will have some fun with Christmassy songs and signs. There are also handouts and activities at home to help parents use the signs throughout the week.

Each week we learn new signs and songs to go with them, and we practice some of the signs from the previous week. And there is a special graduation treat at the end of the course for the families who have attended all 6 sessions!

Practical info

➡️ From November 3rd to December 8th on Tuesday mornings 10.00-10.45 . Join the 6-weeks cycle and learn something new each time. Or come to individual sessions as a drop in.

➡️ Suitable for babies and children from 4 months upwards and also for two or more siblings together.

➡️ Price : 150 CHF for the 6-weeks course or 25 CHF / session. Price per family. Priority is given to families booking the full 6-weeks course.

➡️ This activity is presented by Susie Atkinson from Mignon Baby. It takes places at the Magical Cafe. See address and map.

➡️ Places are limited to 8 families. Booking is essential! Please register online for the class. For the taster, you can book your spot directly at the Magical Cafe: info@magicalcafe.ch
