Last week saw some great Foodimals being created all across the country in our Family Fun sessions inspired by the DVD release of Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 2.
You all made amazing collage creations and built some brilliant imaginative fruit and vegetable 3D creatures. We have put together a small sample of some of the fantastic images you have sent through to Creative Hub. You can see these pictures along with many more on our facebook page.
You still have until Friday to post the pictures of your creations onto our The Creation Station Ltd Facebook page for a chance to win some great arts and crafts goodies. So send us your photos before Friday 28th February for your chance to win!

Isabelle aged 2 1/2, Winner of the Wall of Love competition as she opens her arts and crafts goodies
Our Wall of Love competition saw some brilliant entries and some lovely comments about what you enjoy about creativity. Thank you to everyone who entered. The prize went to the lovely Laura and her daughter Isabelle, who both attend Little Explorer classes with Creation Station Chatham Maritime. Laura sent us a video of her daughter singing the Creation Station song to her teddy bears and running her own little session in her bedroom, so lovely to see the confidence and creativity that the babies and toddlers take home from the sessions.
>> Click on the image above to see Isabelle’s reaction to her goodies, some of you may recognise the song and actions.
Here are some further comments that were posted to our wall:
“I love my little girl’s face of excitement and pure joy at exploring new textures and learning how to be creative with colour and shapes.” Debbie McCann
” My son Ethan was more interested to start with in wandering around and not paying much interest in what we were doing. Now he loves his ‘art class’ and is at his happiest when painting, gluing and covering everything in sparkly bits! After a class we go home and Daddy comes home for lunch and the first thing my son says is – “show Daddy art class stuff” – his is so proud!” Kirsty Cook
“The school system is often a very stressful environment for children now due to constant testing and targets. Creativity has been pushed back but imagination and the chance to be creative and try new things is what makes children confident and well rounded individuals.” Sophie Jones
Laura Wright and her daughter Isabelle excited about getting creative at home.

The Wall of Love at Creative Hub is slowly growing, keep your comments coming in and a winner will be announced on Monday.
Tree of Love
Help your little one to make their own tree of love.
You will need some coloured card or paper, PVA glue, Scissors and a Pen.
For the tree trunk you are going to use your arm and hand. Place your hand down on a piece of green card and draw around your stretched out fingers. See how tall you can make you tree by drawing around part of your arm as well.
To make the top of the tree draw a large heart for the background and then lots of smaller ones on red card to decorate. This is a good exercise for practicing cutting skills but may be a little tricky so help may be needed. If you don’t want to do lots of cutting you can always use paint as an alternative for the hand print and the hearts.
Glue down your hand print onto the bottom of your big heart. Then stick on all of your little hearts all over the top of your tree. You can now draw your name carving onto your tree of love and then think of some exciting things that you love to write on all the hearts.
A new Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 character for you to colour and create today. What materials will you use? What will you name your member of the pickle family? Post pictures of your foodimal on The Creation Station Ltd Facebook page.
