Baker Ross Christmas Craft Ideas

 

I don’t know about you, but I like to get Miss A to make her own Christmas cards and decorations for the house. She likes to decorate her own room each year, and if I can be as organised as possible with the cards then we’re not running around at the last minute buying shop bought ones for her to write out.

Baker Ross has very kindly sent us a box of Christmas craft ideas to help get us started this year. Miss A has been in her element making lots of lovely ideas for you all to look at. I hope you get some inspiration for your home and children.

There were plenty of fun ideas in the box from foam card kits (£2.97pk 3), reindeer card blanks (£2.88 pk 8), Christmas hand puppets (£3.75 pk 3) and sequin character decoration kits (£3.99 pk 3). We also received other additional items to help our crafting inspiration.

The foam card kits contain everything you need to complete three cards. Miss A added her own extras on her cards in the form of Christmas pudding foam stickers, and chose not to follow the ideas sheet but instead use the letters inside the card instead of on the outside. I like kits that provide the materials but still allow the room for inspiration and imagination to be used by the child.

Miss A did enjoy making the sequin characters. A novel idea that I haven’t spotted before with polystyrene half balls, sequins and plastic pegs to secure the sequins to the polystyrene. It certainly meant no mess with glue and was great for using fine motor skills. Miss A decided to change the pattern around when making Santa’s big belly, but again the kit provides everything you need but still leaves the room for the imagination.

As the afternoons get colder, and the nights are getting darker, I can highly recommend these kits from Baker Ross to get yourself ahead of the game for Christmas preparations and also to keep the kids entertained and away from screens.

    What a gorgeous kit. I agree – children’s home made decorations are just so precious.

    Every year I say I will have a go at Christmas crafts to make decorations for my grandchildren. Every year I leave it too late. However having read this I intend to get organised to start this week.
