What is Go Create?

Go Create is a wonderful place for children as young as 18 months to enjoy arts and crafts in a child-friendly, relaxed and safe environment.

A visit to Go Create! is a refreshing change from soft play centres. We have worked hard to make it a memorable, fun, interesting and enjoyable experience.
From our kid-friendly decor to the child-sized tables and chair children will instantly feel at home as the environment isn’t greatly different from school or nursery.

Children love to play, they love to investigate and they enjoy having the independence offered to them to choose their own materials.

Go Create is Unique!

No other creative play centre in the UK offers children as much freedom!

There are two further major reasons why you should visit Go Create! today.

  1. We bring families together. In our busy lives, it’s difficult finding time to spend quality time with your children. Work and life commitments tend to get in the way, why waste this precious time taking them to a soft play centre where they will run off and you will barely see them.
  2. If you ever do crafts with your kids at home you will know how frustrating an experience it can be. You find you either don’t have the materials you need or you are so worried about the mess (particularly painting and glitter) that you spend time worrying about the mess and the event doesn’t become enjoyable.

At Go Create! you don’t need to worry about any mess as we do all the cleaning up afterwards

Little Learners Messy Play and Mark Making – Southport

Messy Play and Mark Making in Sefton and Lancashire

What is Little Learners?

Little Learners is a franchised business offering messy play and mark making sessions nationwide. They currently have a franchise in the NorthWest and cover the Southport area. They have a Facebook page and a website.

All of our sessions are truly unique baby messy play sessions. All of the materials we use in baby messy play are fully edible unlike some other messy play sessions. We theme the sessions weekly and often have special baby messy play events.

What is Mark Making?

LittleLearners use mark making as one of their selling points which simply put is allowing children to draw or scrape in various materials. This could be sand or flour or paint.

Quoted from the littlelearnersuk website:

Mark making is a huge part of your child’s learning journey and one of the outcomes of a prime area of learning – Physical Development – in Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance (birth to 60 months).

When your child starts to make scribbles, patterns and shapes, this is ‘mark making’. It is the first step towards writing. Your child explores, experiments and expresses themselves through the marks they make. They begin to assign meaning to their marks, which leads to creativity and exploration.

Exploring different textures, materials and grabbing various apparatus will help your child get ready for writing. Encouraging your child to use their hands, fingers, feet and toes to make marks will strengthen their core muscles and develop their gross and fine motor skills. These skills are vital for holding and controlling a pencil and letter and number formation.

Children can mark make in many different ways: pen and paper, painting, ‘messy play’ or even drawing in the sand on the beach. All of these provide opportunities to explore a wide range of tools too such as paintbrushes, chalks, pencils and their bodies. The benefits of mark making are clear. Your child’s fine motor skills will develop and strengthen in preparation for writing.

This is something that children – babies from 5 months – preschool can do on a visit to Go Create! however we don’t call it mark making, we call it play.
