A Summer of Fun with The Creation Station Network

Creation Station | Franchise | Life of a Franchisee | Crafts | Event Entertainment | Arts and Craft Activities for Kids | Seasonal Activities for Kids | Parenting

Here at The Creation Station we know that family time is super important - especially in the summer holidays - you think they'll last forever but those six weeks get snapped up in seconds. That's why we encourage our network of amazing, hard-working business owners to take some time for themselves over the summer too - and we honestly think they're super-heroes. Not only are they out there inspiring thousands of children and adults a week, but they're also at home and out and about with their families having adventures and making memories to last for years. 
So here's to them, our 5-star super-hero network and this incredible summer...

Who met with celebrities and had a blast at their events!

And that's not all, overall this summer we've inspired over 150,000 children across the UK - and we're not stopping there. This September is the start of our Texture Terms across our Baby Discover, and Little Explorer classes. Where your little one can learn, develop, and explore the world of textures. If you'd like to find your nearest class, pop your postcode in here and press search. 

Or, if you'd like to join our amazing network of super-heroes featured above, then find out more information here. We already have over 100 inspiring business owners, but there're still places we've yet to inspire - if you'd like to fill one of those spaces, Maggie would love to hear from you - 01395 239 700 or email Maggie here.  

We asked our network for some lovely photos, and there were so many - even too many for this blog, so if you'd like to see the rest of what we've been up to this summer, visit our Facebook page, The Creation Station Ltd.

Lovely concept with original activities

Lovely concept for some creative messy play out of the house. We’ve attended a couple summer sessions outside in the park. It was perfect for my 4 year old who kept engaged with the different activities for the whole 2hour session, and i liked chipping in too ! Nikita and her colleague are lovely with the kids. We will definitely come back :)

I went to an adult creative crafters and had a wonderful time. I leant a new craft, made some beautiful flowers and decorated a vase. My friend was unable to attend in the end but Antonia and Zeynep were so friendly and knowledgeable and ensured everyone felt welcome that I made new friends among the group and was ok not having my friend with me. The crocodile is a lovely pub with friendly staff delicious food and drink, the perfect setting for a fun evening out. I can't wait for next month's workshop.

Our superhero activities

My two children had a brilliant time. Arts and crafts are their thing it was for only an hour but they created so much. They haven’t stopped playing with their creations all afternoon. The lady that ran today actives was fantastic, very welcoming and friendly and greet with the children.
