Day #67 Dreaming of Sandy Beaches

sara le rouxby Sara le Roux,  Owner and Inspirer at The Creation Station Penistone and District

We’re so excited!

We have finally booked our summer holiday!

It’s not until next year but it’s definitely something to look forward to during the cold winter months :)

So to celebrate I decided that we should have some sand foam fun!

What You’ll Need










  • 3 cups of sand – we used some children’s play sand that we have
  • 1 can of shaving foam – nothing expensive – just a value range product will suffice
  • A tub or container to mix everything up in - ready to explore

Sand foam is so simple to make!

Pour the sand into the tub – Boo got the cup and a spatula and had a good stir round!

Picture 004

Start squirting your shaving foam into the sand, mixing as you go until you get the consistency that you want – you actually don’t need that much as you don’t want it to be too liquidy.

Boo was so funny!

“Eurgh Mummy!”

He wouldn’t touch the mix with his bare hands and insisted that I fetched him a cloth.

Picture 009

After using the spatula for a while, he began to get a little more confident and started dipping his finger in, slowly at first and then his whole hand went in…

“Sticky sand Mummy!”


He was having so much fun scooping and dribbling, pouring and squelching…

A fab activity, definitely to be repeated again :)

Day #67 DONE! 33 to go!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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!

Creation Station Halifax

My six year old son has just had his third online session of creation station. All the materials were delivered by Claire ready for the sessions. He has loved trying to guess what he will be using each week. The instructions given by Claire online are easy for the children to understand and good cultural links. Bailey has really enjoyed getting creative and can’t wait for the next session.
