Colour & Create Your Own Cool Queen’s Corgi

For most of us a birthday comes once a year, but like Paddington bear our monarch Queen Elizabeth has 2 birthdays and this year is celebrating her 90th year with 8 official days of fun entertainment, from street parties to concerts.

So here’s a few fun facts that you might not know about our #Queenat90 –

  1. Her Majesty is well known for her love of corgis, having received her first one as an 18th birthday present named Susan.
  2. The Queen once invented a new breed of dog called the ‘dorgi’ after she mated her pet corgi with one of Princess Margaret’s dachshunds. The dorgi was named chipper, however, he was killed after The Queen Mother’s dog attacked him.
  3. On the topic of dogs, Her Majesty once demoted a royal footman after it was discovered he had been getting the corgis drunk by mixing whisky and gin to their food and water.

As a respect of her love of the Corgi we have created this fun activity download for your child to enjoy.

‘Tiny Treasures’ New Born Creative Keepsake Classes Launch As Part Of Creation Station

Tiny Treasure lo res croppedWe are super excited! We are delighted to launch a new craft service for parents who want to create a range of keepsakes with the baby’s hand and footprints.  The classes are called Tiny Treasures and are the brain child of Emma Theunissen who runs her own Creation Station franchise on the Isle of Wight.  (Well done Emma – you are such an inspiration and amazing lady). 

Franchisee Emma and Mae“I’ve been running my Creation Station classes, parties and events for 3 years now and when I had
my little girl Mae in January, I started to create lots of crafty keepsakes.  Following Mae’s arrival I really wanted to create a safe, friendly and welcoming place for new mummies to come to, to meet new friends and create wonderful keepsakes together that they would cherish forever
” says Emma mum to Kai aged 5 years, Zac aged 3 years and Mae aged 3 months. “I chatted it through with our Founder Sarah Cressall who was so supportive and now we are rolling it out across our 97 franchises throughout the UK and Ireland”  

Tiny Treasures is perfect for parents with babies from birth to 5 months.  The fun interactive classes run for 90 minutes and are a relaxed way to meet other parents, have fun with your baby and to be creative, all at the same time.

20160407-DSC00954.jpgI came along to The Creation Station Tiny Treasures and we had such a lovely time. My baby Reggie, is just 1 week old so I didn’t know what to expect. Everyone was so friendly and it was fantastic to create some wonderful creations to treasure. It was so lovely to meet lots of other mums and to do some crafts with my baby.  We both had lots of fun and I can’t wait for the next one” Sarah, mummy to Reggie.

The classes are now running across the UK and you can enjoy a drink and cake whilst creating beautiful treasured memories of your baby’s development. The keepsakes are perfect to keep or to give as special gifts to loved ones.

The monthly classes include creating a range personalised crafts for you to make and take away.  Additional activities to do, can be purchased on the day.
