Creation Station at Hamleys!

  • Date: Thursday 6th November 2014 (then every Thursday)>
  • Time: 10.00am
  • Where: Party Room

The benefits of children sharing creative play with their parent or key carer are well documented. However, it can be tricky providing your baby, toddler or preschool child with hands-on arts and crafts activities at home.

As busy parents we can all struggle with ideas, time or energy and the thought of the clearing up afterwards can feel anything but fun! Also it’s often the case that by the time you’ve set something up, they’ve already finished!

The Creation Station understands this. In fact, that’s precisely why the Creation Station was established - to give you quality, fun, creative experiences with your child in a safe, nurturing and friendly environment.

The Creation Station’s award winning ‘Exploration’ toddler art classes for babies, toddlers and preschool children provide the perfect solution for all your child's creativity needs, with no stress or mess for you!

Here's how the weekly 50 minute ‘Exploration'’ arts and crafts activity classes can inspire your child's own journey of discovery and learning:

  • Explore ideas
  • Discover what happens when...
  • Develop important skills

Creation Station is passionate about inspiring imaginations while helping you to have fun with your little one too. How the Weekly Sessions and Holiday Activities Work:

  • Sessions cost £5.00 per child and only £3.00 per sibling, when you book for the programme.
  • Child minders pay £3.00 for all children except the first.
  • If you can't attend every week, vouchers are available.
