Creation Station | Arts and Craft Activities for Kids | The Creation Station Channel | Activity Sheets | Activities for Kids | Indoor Activities For Kids | Parenting

Today's #MakeitMonday is inspired by the magical world of Play-Doh... 

With so many colours to choose from and just a few added accessories, you can make a whole host of amazing creatures. 

Here's some we made recently... 
Playdoh C 3

To make your own cool and creative creature follow our step-by-step guide on the video below

Step 1: Open up that tub of imagination. 
Step 2: Roll, mould, and make the different pieces of your creature - remember it can have as many legs, eyes, arms and heads as you like. It's your creative creature - make it magical! 
Step 3: Add the extras. Glitter, straws, eyes, and feathers are all fabulous additions to personalise your creature. 
Step 4: Give your creature a name, a story and maybe a superpower or two!

Professionally delivered

Professionally delivered, fun, arty sessions even during Covid. Keeps everyone engaged in the task(s). My 7 & 10 year old really enjoy going. We've accessed free sessions and a 12 week paid block, delivered as an after school club.

So much fun with Emma!

My 3 year old daughter is having a great time on Emma’s “shapes” course via Zoom! Emma is great at interacting with the children, and always looks at what they’ve made and makes encouraging comments on what they are doing, which my daughter really loves. Emma’s course is great fun with songs and plenty of ideas to expand imaginations!!

Fantastic classes!

Emma is so fantastic! The sessions are the highlight of my daughter’s week. She has produced some beautiful work, and is really proud of what she creates. Emma fosters a supportive, encouraging and fun environment for the children to worK in. I would thoroughly recommend her classes!
