outstanding class birthday party for my seven year old daughter

I attended a creation station birthday party a year ago and was so impressed I decided I would like a similar party for my daughter. Yat was brilliant from my first contact with her months in advance of the date. She gave me thorough information, advice on venue hire, and a variety of craft formats to choose from. My daughter and her friends had an amazing time, including the boys from her class who were a bit dubious in advance but went home afterwards buzzing. Yat and her energetic, warm colleagues were marvellous ... they played fun music throughout, and engaged all the children in high quality novel crafts. Yat guided me as a first time party host expertly. The party ran like clockwork. Yat developed a fantastic rapport with my daughter and was wonderful with all the children. A highlight was a fun musical party game after the party food, which the children loved. It was a joy to watch. My daughter will never forget her first proper birthday party, she is still talking about it and we have beautiful photographs, crafts and memories to keep. Thanks to Yat and her team, it was magical for our daughter and for us, an experience and memory we will always treasure.

So much to do!

So much to do!! My daughter and I had a wonderful time making pirate things and can't beleieve how many pieces of art work we came home with! Lovely immersive experience and Alexandra is wonderful with kids. They all were absorbed in her story telling and the interactive treasure chest activity at the end. Thoroughly recommend this!

Working with The Creation Station and more specifically Sandra Steele was a joy and a pleasure. From the very first enquiries through the briefing process and on to the final event, nothing was too much trouble. Real thought and consideration was given to the size of the group, the different age range Sandra would need to work with and her complete flexibility meant switching days at the very last minute and extending the time she was on site. It is with absolute pleasure we provide a 5 star rating to Sandra and The Creation station and would highly recommend her.

My son loves it

We've been to creation station for almost a year now, my son still loves it. He gets to be creative and I don't have to clean up the mess, which is a bonus. Emma is great with all the children. Highly recommend this activity from a young age, learn about textures, colours, shapes etc.

Flamingo story and craft

The session started on time and felt like there was a structure to it. My only thing was that the room felt like small for the age range of the children. The group leader explained she’d be doing baby only sessions in the future but currently 6 months to 5 years. This puts me off booking future sessions, for now.

The creation station Baldock

A really special class. Tarryn is a kind and caring lady who is passionate about creating exciting, sensory and educational art classes. The best Toddler class I have been to. Tarryn makes time for every mum and child. We always have a lovely time and the outcomes are always fantastically planned.
