Make your own goody bag this Autumn

Make your very own waterproof goody bag to carry all of your discoveries that you find on autumn walks. Why not include some leaves in the layers of your bag and try to find the same shapes on your walk.

 

 

This goody bag is also a great idea for Halloween! Are you going trick or treating this year? Why not make your very own goody bag to carry all of your treats, you could even make one to match your costume.

Step 2

 

Sprinkle the collage materials onto the cling film, don’t put everything in at once as you will be creating layers to make your bag strong enough to hold lots of treats.

Step 3

 

 

Cut another piece of cling film and place over the top of your previous piece, this should hold all the decorations in place.

 

 

Step 4

 

 

Repeat steps 2 and 3 another 4 times. You should end up with 6 layers of cling film.

Step 5

 

 

Once you have added all the decorations you want to your bag. Fold over the edges to create a neat seam and keep all the decorations in place.

 

 

Step 6

 

 

Fold the whole thing in half like a book, then cellotape along the side and along the bottom. You will need to fold the cellotape over the two sides of the bag. Put your hand inside the bag to check for any holes.

Step 7

 

 

Create a handle by cutting 30cm of cling film. Along one edge place some decoration, fold over approx. 3cm.  Add some more decorations along the fold and fold again, repeat this until you have run out of cling film. This should then be strong enough to form a handle.

 

 

Step 8

 

 

Cellotape the two ends of the handle to the inside of the bag, make sure it is secure so that you don't loose all of your goodies.

Your bag is now finished and ready to hold all your amazing goodies, whether it be leaves and conkers or yummy surprises from Halloween.

Slime King!

We booked a Slime Party for our 10 yr old and friends. This party went beyond our expectations; it was superb from start to finish. The host, Mark, could not do enough for us. He was very popular with the kids, extremely knowledgeable in everything slime, made sure everyone had a great time and made the birthday person feel extra special. The little extras, such as party bags, slime and foam clay creation to take home were lovely. And a really special memento for the birthday child to take home to remind them that they had, in Mark's words, "the slime of their lives"! I have recommended The Creation Station to all my friends. Thank you Mark, you were brilliant.

A great interactive session for the kids. Facilitator showed great enthusiasm and made every child feel welcomed. Very affordable too. One recommendation I would have is to maybe explain the science behind how the ingredients bond to make slime as some children were old enough to understand and may have been curious.

I hired Creation Station for my daughter’s 6th birthday party where they made slime and animal masks, they were absolutely brilliant and the children loved it. I had so many enquires from parents for their contact details, would highly recommend. Thank you! See you next year!
