We had an amazing box of goodies to get crafting for Spring from Baker Ross. Some great Mother’s Day crafts, as well as an Easter Train, alongside all kinds of nature themed arts and crafts.
Obviously the first thing L wanted to make was the Easter Train. I’ll be honest this was a headache. Fitting the train together using flimsy foam sheets that were supposed to slot together puzzle style tested me to my limits. That being said L loved decorating it and playing with it, even if it didn’t last long. He doesn’t understand the difference between toy and decoration just yet.
The pom pom bugs have been my favourite craft. I hadn’t made a pom pom in such a long time, it was so much fun. L loved the finished product, as you can tell from the slightly blurred pictures of him buzzing around with his bee! I shall certainly be making more pom poms now, very therapeutic.
The Super Mums are a fun Mother’s Day craft, a simple foam sticker set to allow you to decorate your own super hero mummy. The only extra thing you need is some glue for affixing the cape, otherwise everything you need is in the pack. L made one for his Daddy as a prize for after work. I do not know why Daddy deserved a prize for having been to work, I certainly never get one, but at least I got some satisfaction from it being a Super Mum prize.
Super Mum is not the only prize Daddy has been given for going to work. Over the course of several evenings L and I have had fun with the nature sticker sets. A pre printed background sheet featuring a large pond and a sheet of stickers with fish, frogs, otters and other wildlife to complete the picture. The stickers were nice and thick, which made them easy to stick and as well as being a quick 5 minute activity, with no mess or fuss, we’ve been able to chat about all the different animals which I’ve enjoyed.
I’ll be honest and say we haven’t actually played with our final craft set yet. Some floral wreaths that are already cut and printed ready for colouring in, they also come with ribbon for hanging. No doubt they’ll be done soon as who doesn’t love a bit of colouring and it will be nice to hang one on the door, it will make L happy to his work on display.
As always the quality has been great and the value is hard to beat. We love being Baker Ross bloggers as we always find something new and fun to do together, even though L is only little.
