A Summer of Fun with The Creation Station Network

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 who worked together, to help each other grow their businesses and have a fun, family-themed summer...

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.

The creation station in Crawley ran by Corrine, is a fantastically ran messy and sensory play/ create experience. My son loves attending these regularly run sessions with something made by them to take home and great messy play. A different themed every week keeps them happy and entertained. Great value for money and a fantastic teacher what more could you want!!

We had a creation station party for my daughters 5th birthday. Jude was fabulous, From the booking process to the actual party. She kept 11 girls fully engaged from start to finish. They were all so pleased with their masterpieces, crowns and bag charms. Would highly recommend xx

Was a lovely class

Was a lovely class. My 15 month old thoroughly enjoyed it. The only downfall was it was over too quickly.

I thought this would be something…

I thought this would be something different to do with my granddaughter who is 19 months old, I was a bit concerned it wouldn’t hold her attention for the 45 minutes but was pleasantly surprised to say it was only in the last 10 minutes she became a bit distracted. We will definitely be going again.
