Mothering Sunday lands on the 15th March this year and I don’t know about you but I love receiving something home-made as I know time and loving effort has gone into it, that said I also love to receive chocolate!
Baker Ross kindly sent us a Mother’s Day Handprint Poem Decoration Kit to review. E gets excited when a parcel turns up from Bakers Ross as she absolutely loves making things. The kit includes a sheet of green foam, a plant pot with a poem on, various flower stickers and a piece of green ribbon. The instructions for the kit are very straight forward, firstly we had to draw around her hand on the foam, E though this was great, getting her to keep her fingers still was entertaining, apparently I was tickling her with the pen. Once we had drawn the hand print I had to cut it out for her, much as she wanted to do it herself – little miss independent, it just wasn’t happening!
The next part was the easy bit, letting E loose to stick flowers on the fingers. The stickers peel off really easy so she was able to do this without any further assistance. The next stage was to stick the plant pot onto the bottom of the hand with some glue, there is a space for the child to write their name. E is getting good at writing her name but isn’t very good at writing small, I stated her off with the first letter and then she finished it off. As you can see E was really concentrating and because she didn’t need any help once I had cut the hand out she had a real sense of achievement. All that was left to do was thread the piece of green ribbon through the hole in one finger so that it could be hung up.
