3 Acetate crafts to do at home this winter!

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!

Nat has been brilliant

Nat has been brilliant. We have had two packs of the most amazing crafts delivered to our door during lockdown. We have had paints, canvases, pipe cleaners all sorts of fun crafts with ideas to have fun with. Things that we had never heard of or seen before such as noodle doodles. We can’t wait to come to one of your sessions when things get back to normal more.

The live online creative class

The live online creative class is not only fun, relaxed and educational it has also given my girls something to look forward to weekly and a masterpiece or three to show and be proud of afterward. Both my girls have taken the techniques used from the classes to create more art through out the week. I would highly recommend the Creation Station live online classes. *****

We find Creation station brilliant

We find Creation station brilliant! A wide range of activities using all kinds of materials (all supplied to!) with a different theme each week. Very entertaining for my 6 year old to let their creative side shine! The host is very friendly and always patient with the children. The sessions usually last for around 12 weeks so great value for an after school club! My little one always looks forward to it! We are currently attending online creation station during lockdown and it’s fantastic! All Materials supplied to our door with super easy instructions to follow (all organised by our fantastic host Jude) It’s kept our routine which is very important for little people. We love it!!

Vicky is absolutely amazing with the kids, she make it really fun and keeps them engaged through out, she also lets me join a little before if needed So that I am not late for my work meetings. My daughter loves create club and can’t wait for the next session. I think it’s lovely Vicky has kept it going for the kids through these difficult times, I am very thankful as it keeps my daughter occupied being the only child and whilst I’m at work. Thank you Vicky ?

I order these letters quite regularly…good price, speedy delivery.

I order these letters quite regularly but noticed they had gone up in price from last time, so I looked directly at your site. I was surprised to see that to purchase directly from you was cheaper, so that it what I did. The speed of delivery was excellent and I will always come straight to you in future for my craft supplies.

Lisa from the Bournemouth / Christchurch group is brilliant. We've attended some of her classes and doing them live on Facebook now. The classes are great for my 3 1/2 year old. We all join in. Learning through play is the way forward
