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…

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions.

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions once a week. He is doing things that I wouldn’t have thought to do and because it’s a set time each week we’re sitting down and doing it together! The bags are prepared for us with everything in that we need and it is so much fun getting the supplies out and waiting to find out what we are going to do with them each week. Eleanor is interactive and I noticed that on week 3 my young man is speaking out to her and wanting to engage with her. We are so happy to have found the creation station.

Brilliant

Brilliant. My granddaughter enjoys it very much. Kirsty who takes the club interacts with all the children lovely. If any of the children doesn’t quite get what they are supposed to be doing she goes over it again.She likes to see how their activity is progressing and encourages them all the way. She knows all the children and what they like and dislike in their art activities. It is not just an art group it is educational as well

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Today me and my daughters participated in two free taster sessions with Kelly via Zoom. One was for babies and the other was for children of a similar age to my four year old. Kelly was so so friendly and that really came across even through a screen. I loved the variety of activities the girls did, each creating a very different name plaque and one princess mirror. The bags were delivered last week which gave me time to look through them and just made everything smooth and organised. We are defiantly interested in further sessions around yearly events such as Christmas. If the virtual session today was as good as it was I can only imagine how fun and engaging a real life face to face one would be! Thanks again Kelly!!?

Excellent session and good value-…

Excellent session and good value- especially with the £4 refreshment credit. My children had a lovely time and it was such a beautiful location too. Lovely to finally be able to get out to a group after all these months of lockdown so thank you to Kelly for being inventive and finding a safe way to do this during this crisis. We are looking forward to the next session!

My little girl loves creation station

My little girl loves creation station. She talks about all her creations when she gets home and it helps that the wonderful Kelly is so patient and kind with all the kids! It gave me the confidence as a parent to try new crafts with scissors (eeek) and glitter (double eeek)! The sessions are so much fun!
