The Creation Station and Play-Doh bring creativity back to the classroom

Free Workshop for school (1)

The Creation Station, the nationwide creative arts and crafts activity provider, has teamed up with Play-Doh, the iconic family brand from Hasbro, to deliver free educational workshops for schools across the UK. With mounting pressure on teachers and support staff, there has never been more of a need to encourage creativity in education.  The partnership between The Creation Station and Play-Doh will deliver free creative and educational workshops for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One in twenty-five primary schools across the UK.

Creation Station and Play-Doh

“Learning through creative activities helps children own their learning and they explore, discover and develop a wide a range of skills. I’m delighted we can be able to support children and schools with these fun and educational based Play-Doh workshops” said Sarah Cressall, founder and Managing Director of The Creation Station.

‘Supporting creative play is the heart of the Play-Doh brand and nurturing creativity is an integral part of aiding children’s development so we are thrilled to be working with The Creation Station to support our teachers and the educational system” said Craig Wilkins, Marketing Director, Hasbro UK & Ireland.

As part of the programme, schools can choose one workshop from a selection of three. Each has been developed to focus on a range of key learning outcomes for Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage one, with the principle aim to stimulate discussion and creativity using the Play-Doh compound.

Lovely vibe and class to explore and create as a family

Lovely calm vibe in the class, well organised and resourced. It was lovely creating art as a family. It was great to see my little one explore and create a piece of art for her bedroom! She has been showing people her work when they come round!

First session with Kat and she was so welcoming from the start. Made sure she spent time with each child that had attended, as well as giving them time to fully experience the different colours, paints etc. Although there was a few parents who worried about getting paint on their holds hair etc ( it’s messy play :/) this doesn’t affect my score and can’t wait to go back!

Truly fantastic party and very happy birthday girl!

Kate provided an amazing party. She was so good with the children and kept 13 3-6 year olds completely engaged throughout the whole party - no mean feat!! Lovely treat for the birthday girl at the end as well. The party was in my home but all the floors and surfaces were very well protected. Couldn’t recommend highly enough and great value for money.

A great birthday party for our twins

Our children had a wonderful party with their friends, packed with activities which they all enjoyed very much. They also loved going home with their 'own' bag full of self-creations. We also added something 'to make' as a party favour to keep up the theme. Something to look out for though, there were 17 children who finished activities at different speed, which meant that some of the 'not so patient and careful finishers' were keen to run around or play with balloons. I would certainly book Kirsty again but keep a few little games ready in case some children need entertaining in between.
