During next week’s half term The Creation Station will be inspiring families by providing activities at Chessington World of Adventures Resort.

The 19-27 February will be designated African Adventures week at Chessington’s Zoo, SEA LIFE centre and safari hotel. Throughout the week adventurers can immerse themselves in African culture with face mask painting, amazing African animals, clay bead jewellery making and African collage design.

“We are ‘wildly’ excited to have been selected to run the activities at Chessington World of Adventures Resort during the spring half term holiday,” said Sarah Cressall, founder of The Creation Station. “Between 10am-3pm every day, we will be taking families on an exciting journey of discovery, using arts and crafts to explore African culture, to engage children at their own pace and development stage to create their own amazing artwork.

“We will be helping children make recycled beads based on those made by the Buutiti women beaders of Kampala in Uganda as well as clay beads to create body jewellery. In addition, we will be providing templates to help children make painted African masks according to traditional style.”

Chessington World of Adventures Resort and The Creation Station will also be running a prize draw for families who join the programme of drop in activities to win a day pass for a family of four.

Chief Explorer at Chessington David Smith said: “We’re really excited to be holding our African Adventures week for the first time and with our Wanyama Village & Reserve full of African animals and a safari hotel plus The Creation Station on hand to deliver some inspirational activities, this is sure to be an action packed week for all the family.”
