Valentines Crafts with Bakers Ross

Valentines Day is fast approaching and lots of people are looking at ways to celebrate this romantic day. E has no understanding or idea what Valentines day is about purely because we haven’t had that conversation. However when a parcel from Bakers Ross turned up with some valentines crafts in E was very excited. We have been sent some cute little heart gift bags, pet heart photo magnets and Bead heart decoration kits. E wanted to make one of the gift bags first, she chose one with three hearts on to colour in. The bags are only small which meant it kept E’s attention as when it comes to colouring in E can sometimes get fed up and wants to do something else. E wanted to use lots of different colours for the hearts and butterflies and took her time so she didn’t go out of the lines too much.… View Post

Christmas Crafts With Baker Ross

Christmas is a wonderful exciting time of the year for E, she keeps asking to put up the Christmas tree up and talks about Father Christmas. The adverts on the television have led to the I wonder if Father Christmas will bring me this or that etc.. So when a parcel from Baker Ross turned up full of Christmas crafts she was really excited. The first craft she really wanted to do was the Snowman Coasters, this is a really easy craft for little ones to do as all the collage type stickers are self adhesive so all she had to was put the coloured stickers in the right place. This is a simple craft that she could do herself. E loves her new snowman coaster and told me that she is going to use it for her drinks and no one else can use it. Emily spent time concentrating… View Post

Its getting to that time of year where most people are thinking about Christmas, E is constantly mentioning the big day and asking when it is, most days she asks if it is tomorrow. So when our latest parcel from Bakers Ross turned up and was full of Christmas themed crafts, E was very excited and straight away wanted to get started. The craft set that E wanted to make was the Snowflake Magic Wands, I wasn’t surprised that she was excited to make these, after all which little girl doesn’t like wands and all things sparkly? The Snowflake Magic Wand kits contain four different wands to make all different colours- Light Blue, Dark Blue, Pink & White. Each kit includes foam snowflake, self-adhesive foam decorations, ribbon, sequins and wooden stick. E decided she wanted to make the pink wand.

Halloween Crafts With Bakers Ross

As part of the recent Bakers Ross parcel we received recently there was a couple of Halloween crafts to do. At first I thought Halloween eek that’s ages away, but now I realise it isn’t really that far away at all. The shops are now filling up with all the costumes, decorations and all things related. E is really excited about Halloween, she loves to dress up and open the door to all the trick or treater’s and give them some sweets, it really is all very cute. As Halloween lands during the school half term in October it is the perfect opportunity to get crafting with your little ones, as you can guarantee after a couple of days they will be bored and no doubt it will be raining and as a parent most sanity levels will almost be out of the window! The first craft included was some polystyrene pumpkins,… View Post

Autumn Crafts With Baker Ross

Autumn is a beautiful time of year, full of lots of lovely different colours and tones all which are great for arts and crafts. The only downside to Autumn is my eyes is that it starts to get a little nippy – I like warmth and sunshine. We recently received a parcel from Baker Ross full of wonderful Autumn themed crafts and as expected E couldn’t wait to get started. She cannot read yet but she recognises the Baker Ross tape that is on the parcel and gets very excited to see what is inside. We started off with a lovely Hedgehog craft, which consisted of a Hedgehog ceramic tea light holder and in the box was some lovely ceramic paints to use. E has no idea what a tea light holder is, which is kind of good as I am not in a hurry to introduce her to candles,… View Post
