The Creation Station teams up with Barnardo’s to hold Big Toddles in over 300 centres across the UK.

Families can join in Britain’s biggest charity event for under five year olds at their local Creation Station centre. The Barnardo’s Big Toddle at Creation Station will include creating a hat and going for a Big Toddle. Details of Barnardo’s Big Toddle events at The Creation Station can be found on The Creation Station Facebook page.


The Creation Station have teamed up with Barnardo’s to support their fundraising for their work with vulnerable under five years olds in the UK. Parent and toddler workshops will be running across UK to make ‘Big Toddle hats’. 


“Supporting creative play with your child is really important,” said Sarah Cressall Founder and Managing Director of The Creation Station, ”that’s why we are so delighted to have planned some really fun activities for families in over 300 centres across the UK to support Barnardo’s with their inspiring Big Toddle event” 


Charlotte Cooper, Toddle Manager at Barnardo’s comments “We are delighted to have The Creation Station on board supporting the Barnardo’s Big Toddle and helping us to make our 17th year our biggest ever. Every penny raised goes directly to our work with under-fives – so everyone can enjoy themselves and help raise vital funds for those less fortunate children.”

The Creation Station Big Toddle events will include exploring shapes and creating a ‘Big Toddle Hat’. The children and parents will then go for a short sponsored walk.  All money raised will go towards supporting vulnerable and under-privileged children under five years old, including those with physical and learning difficulties.  More information about the Big Toddle event can be found on www.barnardos.org.uk/bigtoddle

About Us.

First and foremost, we are PASSIONATE about nurturing creativity!

What does that mean for us? Well, we love having fun with different materials - paint, glue and, of course, a bit of glitter – but we also believe that being creative is about experimenting, playing and just seeing what happens.

Giving expression to your own imagination in a group setting provides lots of benefits. It helps young children learn to make choices, share, listen, observe, pretend, problem solve, as well as play and interact with others. 

The Creation Station isn’t simply about learning how to paint, model or collage along the lines of “Here’s one we did earlier”. It’s all about having a go, being inspired by something quite simple and encouraging each person to develop their own ideas. It’s amazing seeing that happen and it also gives you a huge boost of confidence when your ideas are taken seriously - no matter how old you are!

Nat has been brilliant

Nat has been brilliant. We have had two packs of the most amazing crafts delivered to our door during lockdown. We have had paints, canvases, pipe cleaners all sorts of fun crafts with ideas to have fun with. Things that we had never heard of or seen before such as noodle doodles. We can’t wait to come to one of your sessions when things get back to normal more.

The live online creative class

The live online creative class is not only fun, relaxed and educational it has also given my girls something to look forward to weekly and a masterpiece or three to show and be proud of afterward. Both my girls have taken the techniques used from the classes to create more art through out the week. I would highly recommend the Creation Station live online classes. *****

We find Creation station brilliant

We find Creation station brilliant! A wide range of activities using all kinds of materials (all supplied to!) with a different theme each week. Very entertaining for my 6 year old to let their creative side shine! The host is very friendly and always patient with the children. The sessions usually last for around 12 weeks so great value for an after school club! My little one always looks forward to it! We are currently attending online creation station during lockdown and it’s fantastic! All Materials supplied to our door with super easy instructions to follow (all organised by our fantastic host Jude) It’s kept our routine which is very important for little people. We love it!!

I order these letters quite regularly…good price, speedy delivery.

I order these letters quite regularly but noticed they had gone up in price from last time, so I looked directly at your site. I was surprised to see that to purchase directly from you was cheaper, so that it what I did. The speed of delivery was excellent and I will always come straight to you in future for my craft supplies.
