As co-founders of the Children’s Activities Association, The Creation Station is helping children get involved in a range of fun and educational activities across the UK during Children’s Activities Week.
This is an exciting NEW national event celebrating the hundreds of thousands of activities, clubs and classes benefiting millions of children every day across the UK. These activities help to develop children’s creativity and help them stay fit, healthy, engaged and happy. The Creation Station DBS checked, health and safety, first aid and safe guarding trained leaders across the UK have signed up to bring lots of creative fun.
With the focus on FUN, hundreds of thousands of children will be dressing up to attend local Creation Station activities and other clubs around the theme '#WatchMeFly'. Look out across social media for a wealth of bees, pilots, butterflies, dragons, rockets, ladybirds, superheroes, fairies and more, all in celebration of the week and all the exciting things taking place.
There will also be amazing competitions, planned visits by VIPs – such as sports personalities and Olympians – to clubs and classes and a world record attempt with Sid Sloane from CBeebies.
Sid will then be visiting two Creation Station classes along with other kids’ clubs and classes, ending with a guest appearance at 'Under 1 Roof' in London, as the exciting week comes to a close. Both the record attempt and 'Sid's Tour' are sponsored by Morton Michel.
Thousands of children’s activities and around 200,000 children are expected to participate. Children’s Activities Week is set to be the most inspiring and remarkable event of its type ever witnessed in the UK. The children’s activity or group which raises the most money for charity and shows the most energy and passion for the week will be rewarded with a very special prize – a visit from singer, TV presenter and personality Peter Andre.
"With the squeeze on creativity in education and increasing concerns about obesity we are delighted to be supporting children and families with creative fun during the week. Being creative and playful together is a fantastic way to connect and have fun with your child and to build your child’s confidence and problem-solving skills."
A wealth of sports personalities and celebrities including Peter Andre, Sid Sloane, Annabel Karmel, John Farnworth and many more are also supporting Children’s Activities Week.
"I’m a huge fan of the CAA and their fantastic work to ensure our children’s services meet a quality assured standard, and I can’t wait to get involved with all the fun during Children’s Activities Week!"
"Singing, dancing, sports, art; these are all the things that I enjoyed growing up and I now enjoy sharing with my children. Shining a spotlight on the opportunities for children to learn new skills and express themselves is a great idea and raising funds for a fantastic charity like Caudwell Children makes Children’s Activities Week 2018 a really worthwhile event; I’m delighted to be on board."
"I’m so excited about the prospect of Children’s Activities Week 2018, it is going to be a fabulous event. Caudwell Children provides the practical and emotional support children need to lead active and independent lives, helping them to reach their full potential. Together with the Children's Activities Association and every activity provider involved, we are going to attract the attention of the nation and showcase what amazing things can be achieved when you give children the helping hand they need to follow their dreams. With these shared goals and the combined strength of all of us working together, we can achieve great things. Stand back everyone and watch us fly!"

I've been running my franchise for a year and I love running my own business and being in charge of my own future. It has enabled me to enjoy more time with my family than I would otherwise have had and allowed me to see my baby grow into a little boy.Claire Darnley
