Creation Station | Crafts | Arts and Craft Activities for Kids | Free Stuff | Activity Sheets | Activities for Kids | Seasonal Activities for Kids | Indoor Activities For Kids | Arts and Crafts Activities For Kids | Half Term Activities For Kids

Colour patterns, leafy trees, and swirly pictures. Acetate is so versatile you can make anything you can imagine - and here's three we'd recommend trying at home! Check out this week's #MakeitMonday and get involved with the fun today.  


You will need; 

4 Sheets of Acetate 

Mixed colour paints 

4 Sheets of white card

1 Black marker

A rainy afternoon and some creative flair! 

You can watch the video above for a good step-by-step guide or you can start by making your painted patterns on a sheet of acetate- then once you're ready to capture your masterpiece - lay a sheet of white card over the top and press down firmly. 
Finally, flip the two sheets and remove the acetate sheet to reveal your piece - allow time to dry and ta da! You're done! 

We'd love to see your acetate masterpieces - so do share them on Facebook with #CreationStation or tag The Creation Station Ltd!

Professionally delivered

Professionally delivered, fun, arty sessions even during Covid. Keeps everyone engaged in the task(s). My 7 & 10 year old really enjoy going. We've accessed free sessions and a 12 week paid block, delivered as an after school club.

So much fun with Emma!

My 3 year old daughter is having a great time on Emma’s “shapes” course via Zoom! Emma is great at interacting with the children, and always looks at what they’ve made and makes encouraging comments on what they are doing, which my daughter really loves. Emma’s course is great fun with songs and plenty of ideas to expand imaginations!!

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!
