Boredom Busting Ideas - Playing with Clay

Today's boredom busting idea is 'Playing with Clay'. 4

Clay is so under-rated. Clay can be a whole number of things. Clay can be modelled into a range of different shapes, sizes and textures. Clay develops a  wide range of skills and is brilliant for inspiring children's imaginations. 

Play-Doh or air-drying clay is great for experimenting with the different effects you can make. Try using different utensils from around the home to imprint on the clay and make new patterns. 

If you can't get a hold of clay try scrunching up tin foil into little balls and using a bucket as a goal to throw them in to! 

We use clay in our weekly classes as it helps to strengthen finger muscles and help improve and develop hand strength for writing skills.

Fabulous evening

Fabulous evening. Rina was a lovely hostess/instructor with lots of crafting materials and ideas for us. We were treated to a nice glass of prosecco too.

So much fun!

So much fun! Baby loved to put her hands on paint and dad was surprised by the father's Day cards she made for him.

My 11-year-old daughter wanted an arts…

My 11-year-old daughter wanted an arts and crafts birthday party, so I contacted my local Creation Station rep, Vickie, and the experience was overall brilliant. The booking process was quick and simple, and Vickie arrived promptly on the day and was able to set everything up in our back garden. There were 14 children at the party, and they made canvas bags and dreamcatchers. The activities were simple and engaging, and the guests were able to take lovely creations back home with them. They all had a great time, and Vickie was a kind and attentive supervisor throughout the session. It was a great birthday party and I would thoroughly recommend it.

We’ve loved attending

We’ve loved attending The Creation Station South Ayrshire classes. Sarah Codling really engages the children and encourages them to express their creative sides. We have been attending these classes for 2.5 years and my son will miss going weekly when he goes to nursery. We will be looking out for the weekend and summer classes.
