“I believe by developing creative intelligence in ourselves and our children, we can help to harness the power to think, create, connect and inspire. These are essential skills in life and can be often overlooked in our quest to attain high grades. It’s why I started The Creation Station in 2002. It’s also why I spent the last two and half years writing my book. I’m delighted at the overwhelmingly positive response ‘Creative Sparks’ has received and sincerely hope people find it helpful to unlock their own creativity, as well as their children’s potential”.

ITV ‘This Morning’ parenting expert, Sue Atkins wrote the Foreword for ‘Creative Sparks’ and commented “Sarah’s book makes it simple, easy and hugely enjoyable to explore and think outside the box”

Andrea McClean, TV presenter said “Despite secondary, school looming and mobile phones have taken over the world, there is nothing like the satisfaction of [children] making something with their own bare hands to keep kids happy. The ‘grown-up’ part of this book really got me thinking; “What WOULD I attempt to do if I knew I could not fail?” Fear of failure is something that holds all of us back, from kids to adults, and Sarah’s natural enthusiasm makes all of us think that maybe we should just give it a go and see what happens? It’s an inspiring book for the whole family, I loved it.”

We love Creation Station

We have been going to Creation Station since my daughter was 6 weeks old. She's now almost 3. Kirsty is just great! She is patient with new Mummies and their babies teaching printing skills and helping produce special memories. As a toddler my daughter is encouraged to be as creative as she wants with plentiful materials available. We both love Creation Station and Kirsty!
