"Create-isise" - Top tips on how to survive School Holidays


Do you struggle a little with the sudden lack of routine to your days on holidays? Tempers fray, whinging increases and the call of 'I'm boredddddddd!' ring around the house? Then "Create-isise" is just for you!

In an attempt to ward off cacophony of moaning, try your own "Create-icise Challenge" this holiday, with 4 different challenges that you all (including Mummy and Daddy) need to complete each day.

1) Exercise - might be bouncing on the trampoline. heading to the park, going for a muddy stomp, out on your bikes (or a rainy jog for Mummy and Daddy!)


2) Creativity - colouring, painting, collage, playing 'bake off' or doing some baking or even doing some digital creativity on the tablet - it all gets the grey cells going.....and is awesome therapy for Mummy and Daddy!


3) Learning - doing that holiday homework project, practising their reading, exploring a new place, watching a nature programme or simply learning a new fact of the day. (This one might be the hardest to complete for Mummy and Daddy but possibly the most rewarding!!)


4) Clearing - helping with the laundry, cleaning out the pets, clearing the table after dinner, getting involved in cooking dinner, tidying the toys in the all counts, and better still, the grown ups get to tick off the daily chores too!

Clearing up

Watch the kids get really involved in the Challenge and get more willing to help with housework. Stop a lot of the holiday lethargy and also help Mummy andChallenge Daddy to ensure you get chances for your own recuperation!

Download your own "Create-isise" chart and enjoy your holidays with the whole family while still keeping busy and having fun!

Nat has been brilliant

Nat has been brilliant. We have had two packs of the most amazing crafts delivered to our door during lockdown. We have had paints, canvases, pipe cleaners all sorts of fun crafts with ideas to have fun with. Things that we had never heard of or seen before such as noodle doodles. We can’t wait to come to one of your sessions when things get back to normal more.

The live online creative class

The live online creative class is not only fun, relaxed and educational it has also given my girls something to look forward to weekly and a masterpiece or three to show and be proud of afterward. Both my girls have taken the techniques used from the classes to create more art through out the week. I would highly recommend the Creation Station live online classes. *****

We find Creation station brilliant

We find Creation station brilliant! A wide range of activities using all kinds of materials (all supplied to!) with a different theme each week. Very entertaining for my 6 year old to let their creative side shine! The host is very friendly and always patient with the children. The sessions usually last for around 12 weeks so great value for an after school club! My little one always looks forward to it! We are currently attending online creation station during lockdown and it’s fantastic! All Materials supplied to our door with super easy instructions to follow (all organised by our fantastic host Jude) It’s kept our routine which is very important for little people. We love it!!

Vicky is absolutely amazing with the kids, she make it really fun and keeps them engaged through out, she also lets me join a little before if needed So that I am not late for my work meetings. My daughter loves create club and can’t wait for the next session. I think it’s lovely Vicky has kept it going for the kids through these difficult times, I am very thankful as it keeps my daughter occupied being the only child and whilst I’m at work. Thank you Vicky ?

I order these letters quite regularly…good price, speedy delivery.

I order these letters quite regularly but noticed they had gone up in price from last time, so I looked directly at your site. I was surprised to see that to purchase directly from you was cheaper, so that it what I did. The speed of delivery was excellent and I will always come straight to you in future for my craft supplies.

Lisa from the Bournemouth / Christchurch group is brilliant. We've attended some of her classes and doing them live on Facebook now. The classes are great for my 3 1/2 year old. We all join in. Learning through play is the way forward
