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.

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.
