Crafting for Christmas 2016 with Baker Ross
I love crafting with the children at Christmas, both making decorations for the home and as a way to calm down when the excitement gets a little bit too much! Baker Ross have some fantastic craft kits this Christmas, which are great do do with your own children, to keep on standby for play dates, or if you are looking for an activity to keep a larger group of children happy.
The children each have a Christmas tree in their own room and they love to fill it with decorations that they have made themselves. These Christmas Elf Mix and Match Decoration Kits (£3.49 for six) are really easy to put together and are a lovely bright and cheerful addition to the tree. All the pieces are self-adhesive, so there is no glue needed and no mess.
We also each sewed a reindeer ornament from this Rudolph Reindeer Decoration Sewing Kits. The sewing is very simple, and then the decoration is stuffed and personalised with self-adhesive stickers and googly eyes. They are very sweet and cheeful!
To decorate our front window, the children coloured in some of these Christmas Bauble Colour-in Window Decorations (£2.75 for 12). You just need felt pens to colour in these see through designs, and if you use nice bright colours they look lovely with the light shining through.
Another cheerful way to decorate the home is by doing some of these Christmas Scratch Art Pictures (£2.95 for six). Children just use the tools provided to scratch away the black surface and reveal the bright colours underneath. Even little ones can manage this easily and produce some lovely colourful wall art.
Christmas is a time for giving, and friends and family love to receive handcrafted gifts from the children. I really like these Christmas Pals Cross Stitch Cards (£3.96 for six), the children have worked really hard on them and they are a lovely keepsake.
A Gingerbread House Photo Frame (£1.49 for five) is also a lovely gift when completed with a photo of the child or perhaps a drawing. The self-adhesive foam shapes are easy to stick together with no mess, and can be customised however the child likes. They can be hung on the tree, or you could also attach a magnet to the back to display on the fridge.
This was another lovely selection of seasonal craft kits from Baker Ross! We've been enjoying crafting with Baker Ross for a couple of years now, and you can see some of our previous crafts here - Baker Ross Crafts for Christmas 2015 and Baker Ross Crafts for Christmas 2014 - My first post and a second post.
I received these craft kits to review as a Baker Ross Blogger. Prices correct at time of writing.
