A great time of year to do craft with the children is Christmas, as the children can decorate the house in all their lovely creations and give the house a festive feel. As usual Baker Ross have come up with some really simple but effective crafts for children that didn’t disappoint and have kept the children occupied over recent weeks.
All the pieces are sticky backed and simply stick around the peg to make the angel. A dab of glue for the hair and some ribbon to hang her up by her wings, and there you have it, a sparkly, festive angel to hang up and enjoy. The children were quite pleased with these and couldn’t wait to start crafting some more!
We then tried our hand at some lanterns and again these were easy to do, but gave us a really effective result. The black background is pre cut and the children enjoyed pressing out the shapes. Then simply glue a coloured tissue onto the back and fold the lantern into shape.
They have a loop at the top so we are planning on hanging them on some ribbon to adorn the house this Christmas. With the coloured tissue behind the windows, these look great against held up to the light.
The foam Snowman house kit was great fun and Miss M really enjoyed assembling it along with sticking the decorative shapes around the outside. The pieces simply pressed out of foam sheets, which Mister B did before passing them to Miss M to build. Again I have to say how effective this looks once finished and has taken pride of place in our front room windowsill for the festive season.
The children love these thick card tree decorations which simply required decorating in any way they chose. They love the Deco pens from Baker Ross and used them to come up with their designs. These look pretty hanging from our mantelpiece or could easily be hung from the tree as they come with pre attached gold threads.
We’ve had lots of fun with the Baker Ross Christmas craft selection and would highly recommend them. There are so many more available that it’s well worth checking out the website and finding some to suit your children. I love the idea of children making their own decorations, it’s fun to do and they love seeing the results of their efforts pinned up for everyone to see.
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the crafts in order to write an honest review.
