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.

Ellie really enjoyed the day.....looking forward to return visit.

Ellie really enjoyed the day...... great fun with her wee friend. And had a great time down in the cafe. Will definitely look out for another event. The atmosphere was great and the attention to detail was fabulous up stairs and within the cafe. Especially looking forward to going through the secret garden door..

Slime Workshop - Nashmills Village Hall

Our two children absolutely loved this workshop. Everything was well set up ready for the children and Liza was a great host giving the children clear instruction, encouraging and helping when required. Both our children are Autistic so the sensory experience with the slime was perfect for them. They came home very happy with their sparkly slime and decorated pot to keep it in. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely time at creation station today even though my boy is only young they helped us make a card with his feet so it will be a personal card for all the family, they were very friendly and I will definitely be going back. I highly recommend them to any family that would like any unique cards made for the family.

Rebecca was wonderful

Rebecca was wonderful - looked after a room of 16 five and six year olds seemingly effortlessly. Our daughter and her friends had an amazing time and we've got the glittery pottery as a memento! Highly recommend.

Highly recommend!

My little boy and I had a fabulous time at the Creation Stations Baby Discover class today. Fun class where my 10month old was encouraged to explore and play in a relaxed and friendly environment. We had lots of fun painting and making mess (without having to clean it up!) and made a cute prints keepsake. Lisa was lovely and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
