Autumn Crafts from Baker Ross - Review!!

We are part of the Baker Ross Blogger Network and recently we were sent another box of goodies to have a look at....In case you didn't know Baker Ross are a family owned and run business who are one of the leading suppliers of arts & crafts to schools, playgroups and organisations in the UK.....


On Sunday afternoon we got the goodies out and here are a couple of the crafts we tried.....

First up we tried out the Year of the Monkey Stained Glass Decorations....Each pack includes pre-cut card templates, cellophane sheets and ribbon....You simply stick the cellophane sheets on the back of the monkey and hang up.....


We had a great time with these and the end result was so pretty especially when the sun is shining....They are now a permanent feature on our kitchen window....

These cost £3.96 for a set of 6 monkeys....

Next we tried out the Hedgehog Cushion Sewing Kit.....Each kit contains pre-punched felt shapes, self-adhesive felt pieces, yarn, wiggle-eyes, plastic needle and stuffing....


My girls made these all by themselves with a little instruction from me....It was a case of sewing the felt shapes together, stuffing it and sticking on the felt pieces....These are a great introduction to sewing and the end result is so cute....Ellie took hers into school yesterday to show her teacher and class as she was so proud of it.....

A packet of two hedgehogs cost £4.70



The girls were very happy with everything we were sent and we still have the Woodland Animals Cross Stitch Kit to try and the Wooden Trophy Magnets to make....

  3. The stained glass monkeys are fab! I think my son would be a bit young for the hedgehogs but reckon he'd really like the monkeys!
