"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!

Professionally delivered

Professionally delivered, fun, arty sessions even during Covid. Keeps everyone engaged in the task(s). My 7 & 10 year old really enjoy going. We've accessed free sessions and a 12 week paid block, delivered as an after school club.

So much fun with Emma!

My 3 year old daughter is having a great time on Emma’s “shapes” course via Zoom! Emma is great at interacting with the children, and always looks at what they’ve made and makes encouraging comments on what they are doing, which my daughter really loves. Emma’s course is great fun with songs and plenty of ideas to expand imaginations!!

Fantastic classes!

Emma is so fantastic! The sessions are the highlight of my daughter’s week. She has produced some beautiful work, and is really proud of what she creates. Emma fosters a supportive, encouraging and fun environment for the children to worK in. I would thoroughly recommend her classes!
