What do toddlers, kids, families, students, adults and senior citizens have in common? 

...they all love getting creative with The Creation Station. Creation Station logo

We have seen some wonderful creations and heard some great stories about the power of creativity this month.

Being creative unlocks so many aspects of our lives: from developing essential early learning skills to building self-esteem and problem-solving skills, to having fun and doing things you enjoy or have never done before

During February we were delighted to provide creative fun for the great ‘Whizz kids’ charity in the North East. Brad Thompson, Abbie Melia and Sharon Fisher ran three events over different weekends and to use Sharon’s words “The organisers and kids LOVED it and I LOVED it too! I love what we do at Creation Station!”’  Whizz kids

Activities included; spray painting graffiti, creating bubble wrap throw-about pom-poms and fabric painting bags. The kids got really stuck in and had a truly colourful and creative experience.  

We got in the festival mood quite early in Devon, with crowns and dancing gear created and used to party at a local rave.  Victoria Rundle was inundated with creative kids and adults finding their creative groove.

We visited eighteen universities across the UK and helped students get creative by marbling phone cases. Over 5,000 phone cases were marbled and each one was different -  the effects were truly awesome.

We celebrated Chinese New Year and welcomed in the year of the Dog. We worked out what animal we were and created our own animal puppets. Yat On and Yat Chen, run the Creation Station classes in Cantonese too, so it was a double celebration for us.

The sunshine arrived in brightly coloured clay creations in some of our Arty Parties. This gorgeous creation is from a very special day in Taunton with Janna Tratt

Our after-school Create Clubs involved helping kids to get inspired by other cultures, from different times and from around the world. We explored the lives of cave people and the ways they communicated. Joscelin Hennigan and her creative kids even made their own indoor fire.

The low winter sun is no problem in Bristol as creative kids designed their own car shades and explored mark making and then popped the shades on the actual windows. Lovely job Sue Hammond! Eight years into Creation Station the creativity just oozes!

We’ve been exploring and mixing our own colours with babies and toddlers. Love these images from Vicky Breakspear.  

We’ve been creating Tiny Treasures keepsakes in workshops across the UK for Mother’s Day and for Easter gifts. Your baby doesn’t stay this small for long, so it’s wonderful to help people create some treasured memories.

And yes, we’ve been going down the pub… our adult creative crafts are in full swing with lots of chatter. lovely crafts and new friends made too.  (Sssh – don’t tell anyone…  It just doesn’t feel like work!)

In our intergenerational workshops, we brought our young creative kids and lovely senior citizens together. These workshops are great fun and really do help you recognise the power of shared creative activities.

It was great fun, with lots of new developments and our Creation Station franchise owners were recognised for the wonderful work they do to inspire their local communities’ imaginations.

Sparking my inner arts and crafts hobbyist

Absolutely love these classes. I was first introduced to these from another baby group leader, I wanted to take my little boy to some different groups. When we were allowed to go, we went to the baby groups in Westhoughton. It was a very warm welcome that made us feel so comfortable in a new group. Everything was explained fully on what we had to do in the groups, even providing protective clothing for the clothes for my little boy. After this, I have gotten to know the group leader a little and now started to join in monthly arts and crafts zoom meetings with other ladies who enjoy this. I never thought I would start a hobby doing this but I LOVE IT! I’ve now made 2 things and am waiting for the March class to make more. It’s something to take my mind away for a few hours and do some creating. I was always so interested in arts and crafts when I was young but now this has got my mind buzzing. Thank you for your groups and lovely leaders! It’s been brilliant doing these groups in lockdown!

A brilliant arty party for 6 year olds

We held a joint online arty party for my 6 year old daughter and her friend today and it was brilliant. Nicola Gillaspy was really helpful in organising the event and sent out everything we needed ahead of time, and was an absolutely brilliant party host. All the girls were engaged and made some lovely crafts, and it was lovely to see them all laughing and having fun together, in spite of the lockdown. Thanks Nicola - highly recommend her parties ☺️

I cannot praise the creation station enough. It has been a wonderful experience taking part in the zoom calls and it has been a god send to my sister, who has learning difficulties. I wish I had found you sooner

Lots of fun!

My 9 year old twin girls absolutely love their Creation Station sessions with Alexis. They always want to do the normal after school sessions, and are equally enjoying the zoom after school sessions plus some extra holiday sessions too. Alexis is great with the children, and the crafts are fun and varied.

Wizard Workshop

My 6 year old loved the online Wizard Workshop! You can tell Alix was a teacher as she has the ability to hold all the kids attention. They had great fun with the slime making and other crafts. It was very exciting to receive the box in advance and I think for 2.5 hours it was also great value for money.
