Help combat loneliness with a personalized card

During this period of social distancing, loneliness will be more prevalent than ever. But its never been simpler for people to show they are thinking of someone than with a handcrafted, personalised card from Creative Park. With multiple designs for every occasion, crafters can show their loved ones just how much they care even when they can’t see them in person.

Bring the outside in

While a trip to the Zoo might be temporarily on hold, why not create your own safari or zoo at home? Parents can spend some time making paper animals with their kids and with everything from cats to capybaras, they are sure to find their favourite animal amongst the selection of templates available. Children can truly transport themselves with one of the dioramas which will help them imagine the environments their favourite animal might live in.  Or, they can try to alleviate boredom with a striking white tiger or a cuddly-looking giant panda, not forgetting to give them a home in this Asian Bamboo forest.

Spark your child’s curiosity

Creative Park hosts a plethora of educational content to support and stimulate pre or primary school children during this time. Engaging activities such as pop-up fairytales, picture matching flashcards, puzzles, and time-telling tools offer different challenges for children of different ages.
