Day #30 Creepy Critters

Creation Station | Halloween Activities For Kids

by Sara le Roux,  Owner and Inspirer at sara le rouxThe Creation Station Penistone and District

It was lovely getting creative with Izzy yesterday for ‘Baby BOO!’ but right before we headed upstairs for bath time, Boo came running in shouting “Make, Mummy, Make!”  As fab as it was to see him so excited and wanting to do something creative, the minor meltdown he had when I explained that Izzy had already made something with Mummy – WAS NOT!

Oh No!

There’s a ‘Mummy Lesson’ learnt :(

He’d spotted Izzy’s spooky footprints and kept asking to “Paint, Mummy, Paint!” So today when it came to ‘make time’ off we went to find our paint!

What You’ll Need














  • Black paint – we used Crayola washable
  • Card
  • Sponge
  • Plate
  • Wiggly Eyes – we used self-adhesive ones

So following the method we used yesterday in ‘Baby BOO!’ and on Day #9 ‘Butterfly Baby’, we got the sponge all painty and ready to use.

Boo put one hand onto the sponge and got it all covered in the black paint before placing it onto the card.  We wiped his hand and repeated the process with the other hand, placing it opposite the first hand print.

“Oooooh paint Mummy!”

We left it to dry whilst we had some dinner and then added our wiggly eyes!

Ta Dah!

Very Creepy Critters!

Absolutely loved this class..

Absolutely loved this class... everyone was spaced out & relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble & the class was perfect for our age. Nothing was too much trouble for Lisa. Just booked for following week.

Fab messy fun

Great fun, super friendly, and lovely atmosphere. I loved that we had a walker, a crawler, and a sitter-upper and the class absolutely worked for each of them, no matter where they are in their development. Can't wait to go back!

My four year old daughter had a fabulous time at the Slime making workshop. She's still playing with the slime she made now, almost a week on. We've since booked onto another session. Great value for money. ?

Engaging and welcoming crafting sessions

I can’t recommend Alix and her team highly enough. We attended the Slime workshop and the kids were absolutely buzzing when we picked them up! Alix engages at the perfect level to the ages of the kids and is full of enthusiasm and creativity. We will be regulars for years to come, thank you Alix and team!
