Lovely class ??‍???‍???

Such a lovely Time today. Nothing too much to ask from Alexis and certainly felt very safe and comfortable in current circumstances! I only wish I could have come when my twins were smaller and could move less! Would love to come back for another session- thank you!

We had a lovely session, and made some beautiful keepsakes. Alexis made us feel welcome and she was helpful when needed but also let us get on with things ourselves.

Creative fun had by all!

My youngest daughter loves her weekly session at The Creation Station! Splashsuits are provided to keep the little ones clean and the class is held in a COVID safe environment. Great, creative fun for children and parents to have together, we just wish the time didn't go so quickly!

Can’t wait to go again!

I went along to a baby creation station session. I’m not the most creative person but thought it would be fun for my baby. Had the best time and made some brilliant little keepsakes and the host Alexis was great and gave me so ideas, the cake and coffee was a bonus too! Booked in for the Xmas keepsakes session and can’t wait!! Thanks so much for a lovely morning

My two girls came to the Creation Station holiday club and absolutely LOVED it, wore their creations the whole evening and talked about their day none stop. Claire is incredible with the kids and we will not hesitate to book our girls on to more of her Holiday sessions! Thank you!
