As we are officially in festive season we have been getting our craft on. Its so much fun to make stuff with the boys - even if sometimes they don't follow the plan. But watching there creativity and imagination develop is amazing. I love Baker Ross for fantastic products which are safe for the children to use, great ideas and at such reasonable price. We got sent a fantastic goodie box of lovely things to try out.
The clay tea light holders M loved, these are such a cute size - and I have plans for him to decorate the others and we package them up as little gifts. They are really smooth and in the interest of not getting paint EVERYWHERE we used some of the Baker Ross Giotto Pens - which work wonderfully on this surface
The two ink pad sets are a mind blown for me. My youngest who is two now LOVED these. They made little mess ( well nothing a baby wipe couldn't sort) and it meant I was not watching like a hawk with paint about. He loved getting his fingers messy and sat there for a good 15/20 minutes - which is a long time for a little one.
The foam stamp sets were amazing. Really sturdy, with bold designs. Plus easy to wash - I just threw them in the sink and gave them a scrub.I used a roll of brown paper across the table - but I think I will be getting them to make some special wrapping paper. We used the stamps with the paint and ink pads and both worked really well.
The bowl of penguin foam stickers was also a hit - I have been finding them everywhere.
Have you been crafting with the kids this festive time? Whats your favorite thing to make with them?
