It seems to be ages since we last had a Baker Ross delivery. L and I have missed the fun crafts and easy inspiration they provide.
Last week, to get us ready for Halloween and get into the Autumnal spirit we got a great selection of crafts delivered. I love the fact that at only three years old they still have loads that L can join in with. From simple colouring in to more interesting crafts.
Now we’ve not had chance to use everything yet but I wanted to tell you about them whilst you still had time to grab the Halloween crafts.
We got a lovely pack of foam stickers featuring all kinds of Autumn-y things, toadstools, corn, woodland animals and the like. So cute. We also got loads of felt tip pens. Some fun skull bags to colour in. A set of Halloween picture frames to make. As well as some cord for making friendship bracelets.
These things all look amazing and I can’t wait to try them but over the weekend we tried out a couple of the other sets we were sent and I haven’t mentioned yet.
L and I started the morning with an easy craft. Easy for mummy to set up and clear up. No mess and nothing to organise, the kind of thing I need after a long week. The Halloween Dotty Art was a big hit. Simple dotty print outs of Halloween things like ghosts and spiders and of course a pumpkin with loads of dot stickers to place and create the finished piece.
L really enjoys anything sticker related and he concentrates so hard on getting them in the right place. It took him about 15 minutes to finish one picture which is just about right for him. Not so long he looses interest. With these sheets of stickers I find it easiest to pull all the backing off first, simply leaving the dots on the sheet. That way he can easily pull them off himself and I can sit back and relax for a few minutes.
It took seconds to get him set up with this and there were just a few stray stickers to clear up afterwards. The perfect craft for a tired mummy early on a Saturday morning!
Later that day after I had woken up a bit we got on with some messier crafting, but still just as easy with some Sand Leaf Art. We popped outside for this, mainly because it meant way less clearing up for me but I could pretend it was for the whole nature aspect of things.
This one requires a bit more input from me but it’s still very straight forward. You peel off sections of the pre cut sticker backing, pour on sand, tap off the excess then peel away the next section. I did all the peeling, it was a bit too fiddly for L. He did the colour choosing and sand pouring though, then afterwards he played with all the coloured sands on the patio.
I loved the overall finish and that you got plenty of sand, way more than you needed, even with an enthusiastic toddler on sand duties.
