I am always on the look out for girly gifts for my nieces, and these cute little cats caught my eye. I think they are something I would have enjoyed doing at their age so will be adding them to my shopping list. Buying for girls is a dilemma in my house where boys dominate. In-fact until 8 years ago I only ever bought gifts for boys.

I love the Interplay kits as they have such a great range including some great stocking filler gifts. Their living world sets have been great for inspiring the boy and his love of the natural world. While the Fuzzikins Cozy Cats would be loved by my niece. Have a look here to see what MotherGeek thought of the set. I love how these little customizable figures turned out.

I have one set of Fuzzykins Cozy Cats to give away and you can enter with my gleam app below.

Easter Crafts with Baker Ross

With Easter so soon after the half term we decided to make some Easter crafts in plenty of time to pass them onto our family.There are so many great kits to choose from but we decided to try out the fuse bead birds, and a wooden apple bird feeder from our Baker Ross craft kits.

Just like the heart fuse kits we tried the last month the Bird kits come with everything you need to make at least 6 of these brightly coloured birds. I decided that I would try and follow the pattern for the robin. I was pleased how easy the pattern included in the kit was to follow. It would be easy for the boy too as he likes following instructions. The result was a cute little bird model and this was perfect for a finishing touch for the Easter craft gift for the boys Granny.

The bird feeder was also going to be for Granny, as we know she loves feeding the birds. We decided to try out the Artepatch papers to decorate our wooden bird feeder. This was very easy to do by tearing up small pieces and adding them to the surface with a large amount of pva glue. The Wooden bird feeder will make the perfect gift, and will be something that I am sure granny will treasure. I was impressed with the finish and with very little skill so perfect for the boy, as he is quite the perfectionist!

The boy has been doing some more Easter crafts with cubs and I love these scraper eggs which they made. Perfect as an easy craft for the Easter holidays.

Mothers Day crafts with Baker Ross

Mothers Day is only a few days away, and we have been making a few gifts for the Mum’s and Granny’s in the family. Baker Ross have some great new spring kits which are perfect to complete with all the things you need in each pack, they are perfect for the boy who has become a bit reluctant to complete craft projects. Having a kit with everything included means there is no delay in getting started.

We spent the weekend having fun with the Heart Fuze Bead kits which make the perfect Mothers Day gift. This is one craft that the boy is happy to sit and make his own unique patterns. Each of the kits comes with a sheet of suggested patterns and we enjoyed making these as well as our own. The boy was very pleased that he is old enough to have a go at fusing the beads with the hot iron He was very confident using it as he has been learning to iron his cub uniform.

Baker Ross have a great selection of Mothers Day craft kits, and we were sent some which we have been sharing with the boys cub pack, as they are completing their artist Badges. Our Cub leader always buys Baker Ross kits for the kids to do, and they love having something to take home and show the parents. Because you can buy Baker Ross craft kits in larger quantities at a saving these are perfect for after school groups like cubs.

Summer Holiday Crafts with Baker Ross

Each summer I like to do some crafts with the boy, and we start off with our summer holiday planner. Baker Ross have some great summer craft packs, and we were sent a selection to try. This is something I have made and kept every year since the boy started school. It is a great way of recording our days out, and something we can look back on, to remind us what we did as well as being a visual diary of what we have to look forward too.

summer holidays

Usually I rule out a large sheet of card with a box for each day, this year I had an unused calendar which I cut up and stuck to a sheet of card. Then it was the boys job to decorate it and make it look nice. We used the Baker Ross Craft-it! square self adhesive jewels to embellish our Summer planner, as well as Deco pens to highlight special days out. The boy enjoyed making a rainbow by lacing and threading beads and hung this from the bottom of our planner. Having a Summer Holiday Planner helps stop some of the questions, and “I’m Bored!” moments in our house. I will add days out and play dates. This way the boy can see where we are in the holidays as he often forgets what day it is. Having a holiday at the end also means we have something fun before he starts back at school in September.

summer holiday

Once completed we looked at some of the other New Summer Holiday crafts from Baker Ross. The boy enjoyed the wooden frame lacing kits which come in four shapes with four colours of wool to make fun and intricate patterns by treading through the pre drilled holes in each shape. We used the Deco pens to add colour to the shapes, and the boy then hung them up for decoration. I have been very impressed with how easy to use the Deco pens are and as they are acrylic they wash off hands, while the colours still stay vibrant on your project.

Baker Ross also have great little party bag fillers, and we used our sticky monsters to make little thank you gifts. We decorated our craft baskets, and filled each one with sweets and a gift, perfect to say thank you for friends and teachers.

We have loved crafting with the Baker Ross Summer Holiday Range, and are now looking forward to some more fun crafting projects over the summer. Have a look at the Baker Ross website for crafts for all ages, and with the click and collect service you don’t even have to stay at home for your parcels.

Crafts4Kids grow your own garden

Crafts4Kids grow your own garden is a great activity to get your children growing and we decided that Easter was the perfect time to get growing. Crafts4Kids is a website full of creative and educational gifts for all ages and has some very unique and exciting kits with everything you might need to both craft and experiment to your heart’s content.

flower garden

Crafts4kids our grow my first ever garden kit RRP £14.99 comes with everything you need. The box with its drawn flowers contains a windowsill planter, crayons, soil, seeds, dibber, and labels. To get started simply remove the jacket and start personalizing your window box. With a line drawn flowers box to colour-in,keen artists will love this little garden. The boy was surprisingly keen to get colouring and got out a box of art supplies he had been given for Christmas. Usually reluctant to put coloured pen to paper I think being at home for two weeks meant anything new became fun! The only problem we had with this kit was the box was wobbly on its side and difficult to colour in but this wasn’t too much of a problem and we found that not leaning on it hard helped.colour-in

Next fill with the box with the soil provided (save a small amount to cover the seeds) and sow the seeds with the dibber. Choose from Nasturtium, Sunflower, Cosmos, and Cornflower, these easy to grow plants are ideal for kids as they are pretty much fail proof! At least I hoped they were as I have never been that good at growing anything from seed. It turns out however that the boy might have green fingers like his great Nan. Next label, water in and keep damp as they seeds take 14 – 21 days to germinate depending on the environment. Once your seedling have appeared you can choose to pot on, plant out or thin and grow in their window box.planting seeds

We enjoyed looking at the different seeds, the shapes and sizes and the boy was fascinated by how different they all were. The grow your own garden window box looks bright and colourful on our kitchen window, and our seedlings took less than a week to pop their little heads out of the soil. We decided to have a guess at which would be first and the results were surprising as I was convinced that the sunflowers would win. I hope we have some beautiful flowers to plant out later in the year, now we just have to look after them.crafts 4 kids gardening

Crafts4Kids have a great range of kits and toys for every age group. We loved our gardening kit, and would recommend this as a great different gift. With an easy to navigate website, drop downs you can choose an age range, interest or simply how much you want to spend. I have found some great kits for the boy who is really getting into experiments and science and will keep them in mind for his birthday later in the year.
