Craft packs recieved by schools by The CReation Station during lockdown

"Our key worker children were over the moon to receive a special parcel addressed to them! There was lots of excitement when they got to choose their very own items and Play-Doh! Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful resource which they can continue to create with over the next coming weeks. I was so impressed with their imaginative and colourful creations!"

Kind regards

Mrs Hall, Headteacher, Hextable Primary School, Rowhill Road, Kent

Fantastic classes!

Emma is so fantastic! The sessions are the highlight of my daughter’s week. She has produced some beautiful work, and is really proud of what she creates. Emma fosters a supportive, encouraging and fun environment for the children to worK in. I would thoroughly recommend her classes!

Austin had a great couple of days and was very proud of all the creations he came home with, they are exhibited for all to see! Lovely for him to do something different and being a fairly small group was great for him, not too overwhelming. Thank you x

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions.

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions once a week. He is doing things that I wouldn’t have thought to do and because it’s a set time each week we’re sitting down and doing it together! The bags are prepared for us with everything in that we need and it is so much fun getting the supplies out and waiting to find out what we are going to do with them each week. Eleanor is interactive and I noticed that on week 3 my young man is speaking out to her and wanting to engage with her. We are so happy to have found the creation station.

Brilliant

Brilliant. My granddaughter enjoys it very much. Kirsty who takes the club interacts with all the children lovely. If any of the children doesn’t quite get what they are supposed to be doing she goes over it again.She likes to see how their activity is progressing and encourages them all the way. She knows all the children and what they like and dislike in their art activities. It is not just an art group it is educational as well

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Today me and my daughters participated in two free taster sessions with Kelly via Zoom. One was for babies and the other was for children of a similar age to my four year old. Kelly was so so friendly and that really came across even through a screen. I loved the variety of activities the girls did, each creating a very different name plaque and one princess mirror. The bags were delivered last week which gave me time to look through them and just made everything smooth and organised. We are defiantly interested in further sessions around yearly events such as Christmas. If the virtual session today was as good as it was I can only imagine how fun and engaging a real life face to face one would be! Thanks again Kelly!!?
