Day #31 Fluffy Ghosts!

Creation Station | Halloween Activities For Kids | Halloween Party Ideas

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

I love Halloween and can’t wait until next year when we will start taking Boo out ‘Trick or Treating’.  Until then, we always sit on our sofa with the curtains open watching everyone call at all the houses and listening to Boo squeal with delight each time our doorbell goes.

This year we have decided to decorate the front door of our house so we really need to start thinking about what we are going to use.  Spooky fluffy ghosts maybe……..

What You’ll Need

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • 1 x A4 white card
  • Black card – just some small leftovers will do
  • Cotton wool
  • PVA glue (& spreader)
  • Scissors

I very roughly cut out the shape of a ghost from the A4 white card and let Boo get on with sticking the cotton wool on.  He loved the way the cotton wool kept sticking to his fingers and spent ages just pulling it apart.

I’m really impressed at how far he has progressed in just a few weeks in terms of his ability to sit and concentrate on our activities.  Whenever I ask him if he wants to make something he runs off and fetches his splash suit shouting “Make, Mummy, Make!”

When he had covered the card, we used the leftover black card to cut out two eye shapes and a mouth and then glued those to our spooky creation too…

Sparking my inner arts and crafts hobbyist

Absolutely love these classes. I was first introduced to these from another baby group leader, I wanted to take my little boy to some different groups. When we were allowed to go, we went to the baby groups in Westhoughton. It was a very warm welcome that made us feel so comfortable in a new group. Everything was explained fully on what we had to do in the groups, even providing protective clothing for the clothes for my little boy. After this, I have gotten to know the group leader a little and now started to join in monthly arts and crafts zoom meetings with other ladies who enjoy this. I never thought I would start a hobby doing this but I LOVE IT! I’ve now made 2 things and am waiting for the March class to make more. It’s something to take my mind away for a few hours and do some creating. I was always so interested in arts and crafts when I was young but now this has got my mind buzzing. Thank you for your groups and lovely leaders! It’s been brilliant doing these groups in lockdown!

A brilliant arty party for 6 year olds

We held a joint online arty party for my 6 year old daughter and her friend today and it was brilliant. Nicola Gillaspy was really helpful in organising the event and sent out everything we needed ahead of time, and was an absolutely brilliant party host. All the girls were engaged and made some lovely crafts, and it was lovely to see them all laughing and having fun together, in spite of the lockdown. Thanks Nicola - highly recommend her parties ☺️

I cannot praise the creation station enough. It has been a wonderful experience taking part in the zoom calls and it has been a god send to my sister, who has learning difficulties. I wish I had found you sooner

Lots of fun!

My 9 year old twin girls absolutely love their Creation Station sessions with Alexis. They always want to do the normal after school sessions, and are equally enjoying the zoom after school sessions plus some extra holiday sessions too. Alexis is great with the children, and the crafts are fun and varied.

Wizard Workshop

My 6 year old loved the online Wizard Workshop! You can tell Alix was a teacher as she has the ability to hold all the kids attention. They had great fun with the slime making and other crafts. It was very exciting to receive the box in advance and I think for 2.5 hours it was also great value for money.
