Miss A always has her nose in a book, so a pack of make your own mermaid bookmarks were an instant hit. All the individual pieces were included in the back to create a ribbon weaving foam bookmark. Instead of glueing the ribbons to the back of the foam, I chose to use tape as it seemed to be a little more secure.
This activity took Miss A around ten minutes from start to finish which was a good time for attention pan. I think this would be a great idea at a craft party, or even as a kit for the party bags perhaps.
Following on with the same theme, we also coloured some polystyrene fish with our pens we reviewed a little while ago. The foam fish made us a great hanging mobile, but your imagination is your only limitation with this craft pack.
I an lucky that Miss A enjoys trying to sew, and the sewing kits that Bakerross create contain everything a new sewer needs to complete a sewing activity safely. There are no sharp needles, and the holes are pre cut which make the templates easy to put together and sew. I like that all the accessories are sticky backed foam or felt pieces as well which makes the activity one a child really can do without adult intervention (unless a knot appears in the wool).
We did receive some non under the sea crafts in our review box such as ceramic gnomes, scratch art rainbow monster magnets, and a selection of stickers.
Bakerross craft kits are amazing value and can be used for a variety of activities. I have recently gotten some of our surplus out during play dates and it’s been a great hit with the girls. Miss A has taken to making quite a lot of her extra kits as gifts for her friends at school which I thought was a lovely idea.
