Boredom Busting Ideas to keep the kids busy this Summer

Creation Station | Crafts | Events | Free Stuff | Creation Station News | Activities for Kids | Seasonal Activities for Kids | Parenting

Six WHOLE weeks!? We know.. but fear not! We have 15 (and a half for good measure) ideas and activities to keep the kiddies (and yourself) busy this summer...take a look at our first one below. 

1. Painting With Water simple, but effective. 1 half

When it's dry outside, take a bucket of water and a few brushes and paint the walls and floors outside, (this won't work if your walls are white!) this could be a pavement, or path, or even a wooden fence. The walls and floors change colour but then dry out after a while, mess free! 

Take old decorating brushes and rollers and let the children experiment with the different effects the brushes and rollers make. If you have space outside this is a great physical activity and can involve stretching. 

As the watermarks don't remain there are lots of opportunities to talk about making marks, lots of different shapes and use the same canvas again and again. 

Try this out at home and share your creations with The Creation Station Ltd on Facebook with the #CreationStation hashtag.

Adult craft evening

Review of adult craft evening.....Chantal is amazing! She is super lovely and brings a wide range of materials with her to the session. She taught us new techniques in simple but effective way. I found the session therapeutic and relaxing.

Katie's class is great!

I have been taking my son to Katie's classes since they started at Bridge of Weir 4 weeks ago and Casey excitedly runs into class each week. In each 45 minute class there is a new theme and there are 3 different "stations" to work through so there is enough variety in a class to keep the children entertained. The Creation Station is a very nice change from the usual sing song classes that I've taken Casey to before. Each week he has been proud as punch to come home with his work of art to show his daddy and his grandparents. Definitely recommend this class ? Bonus points that I dont have to worry about tidying up the mess Casey makes!
