The boys set to crafting with the Skateboards, using the stick on stars and some sparkly Deco pens, they designed their very own mini finger skateboard. Each skateboard comes individually wrapped which is ideal if you want to place in a party bag or give away as gifts. My eldest designed a couple for his friends, personalising them with their initials and sticking on the foam stars, he then placed them bag in the little bag that it came in so that he could give them away as a leaving gift at school.

The youngest enjoyed drawing and colouring in the card Safari Animal Shapes With 10 different types of animals to choose from, Oliver and his cousin sat down with the craft box and had lots of fun together. They decided to use some googly eyes, the butterfly shaped stickers and some felt tip pens to make some very colourful animals, I love what my niece did with the Horse shaped card, she even added on a feather for the horse’s mane.

Oliver enjoyed decorating the monkey, I think he may have had a little help from his big cousin in placing the stickers on in the correct places, but I love that he sat down and spent time with her to craft together. He puts a lot of concentration in when he is colouring or making things and really thinks about what colours and stickers to use.

The sun was shining so the boys decided to do some painting outdoors in the garden, they painted the ceramic coin beach huts and although they got a bit messy, they had lots of fun. The money banks are now on their sides in their bedroom collecting up their money ready to spend in the summer holidays.

I thought that the beach huts were very cute and couldn’t wait myself to get designing, I used a selection of sparkly Deco pens to decorate it with, what do you think?

I think they would make great gifts to their friends to save up their pennies in.

We’ve received similar bookmarks before from Yellow Moon, last time the boys made up Olympic designed ones, this time Joseph was very excited to see that they were football related. He has never really been a football fan but with the recent hype about the world cup he has shown a lot more interest in the sport. He chose his design and got to peeling away the backing from the pre-cut foam stickers to stick them in place, which even with his little fingers he found quite easy.  Never one to follow instructions he just decided to stick the stickers wherever he felt like lol

The Lip Whistles are brilliant if your child is having a party this summer, they can be added to a party bag as a little gift to the party goers or like us why not take them away with you on holiday and drive everyone mad with the noise 😉  They come in four bright colours Green, yellow, orange and pink, each wrapped in its own little bag, they would be ideal for a lucky dip. Place the whistles between your lips and blow, they make a fabulous little whirling noise keeping the children amused for hours.

The last thing we received in our craft box was the sun catchers in the shape of fish, they come with a silver cord that you attach to the finished decorated fish ready to hang in the window and for the colours to reflect into the room once the sun catches them. We didn’t have any glass pens or paint so we used our deco pens to colour them in with, they come in three assorted designs and look so colourful up against a window

Why not make your own coral reef display in the window
