This past weekend we celebrated my baby girl turning 4!!! I’ll share my emotions on that in a different post though, because this post is about the amazing venue in which we had her party at.
If you’re local to Edmonton, and you have a child I feel like it’s almost impossible to not have heard of this cute little children’s art studio. My Ayda is a artist at heart, she can literally spend her days crafting and get so lost in it, the whole day will pass without her even realizing it. So naturally it made perfect sense to celebrate her big day doing what she loves.... crafts.
I have known about Creation Space long before Aydas birthday party. It’s been open for just under a year but due to busy schedules I’ve unfortunately have never had the chance to go prior to her party. I have however swooned over her Instagram feed (@creationspaceyeg), mentally made plans in my head to take the kids there (even though I never did) and tried and failed to mimic all the beautiful art projects.
Alie, the owner and brilliant mind behind this studio was an absolute treat to plan with. She made my party planning life as easy as possible. I told her my daughter was obsessed with unicorns and she basically took it from there, pitched me a few ideas for main crafts for the kids to work on and once decided, she took full control. She even offers to do gift bags for the party fitting the theme. As someone who tends to over do it for my kids birthday parties and take on way more then I can handle, having someone else do most of it for me was a nice change.
The studio itself is right on Whyte Avenue. It’s basically any art obsessed toddlers (or grown adults - if I’m being serious) dream. Alie had set the studio up specially for Aydas party. There was a sensory table filled with rainbow coloured rice, and fun little unicorns in it, fully equipped with bottles, strainers and other little gadgets for the kids to play with. She had also prepared a giant birthday banner and a massive present for the kids to paint as they waited to start the main craft. For the main craft each kid got to make their own little “small world” : Alie had given them endless supplies of glitter, beads, stickers,seashells, sticks, flowers, basically anything and everything you could think of she had on the table for the kids to use. They built their small worlds on coloured dough, and added items as they pleased. They were also provided rainbows or pieces of wood resembling mountains and small unicorn or dinosaur figures to paint. It was so much fun watching what each child imagined and then created.
I honestly couldn’t be any more pleased with our experience at Creation Space, and Alie is an amazing human being with such a creative mind. I’m only sorry it took me so long to go and experience the space myself.
If you have children, I strongly suggest you let them experience the magic of Creation Space.
