I am part of the Baker Ross Blogger Network which means my girls and I get sent products every now and again to try....This time we were sent a great selection of Mothers day crafts and Heart crafts to try.....
£2.75 for a pack of 4.
Each kit contains pre-punched card template, yarn and plastic sewing needle....The girls had a great time with these although I left them for a few minutes to make them themselves so they actually didn't get the cross stitching perfect but who cares....They had fun making them and Ellie is taking one to give her teacher as she collects bookmarks.
£3.49 for a pack of 6.
Each pack contains 3 heart-shaped peg boards, 1500 coloured beads. There are 7 assorted bead colours - Red, Bright Pink, Light Pink, Lilac, Purple, Blue and White...Ironing paper and silver cord....You put the beads on the board and then cover it in an ironing sheet and iron it so they all stick together.
I don't know how I feel about these kits....They were so fiddly. The beads wouldn't stay put when we were trying to place them on the boards. Ellie and I were getting quite frustrated....Becky said it's because we have sausages for finger...lol We were impressed with the end results though. There is plenty of beads left and the boards are reusable so we will be having another go....
I do have a confession to make....I don't own an iron. lol I may have used hair straighteners to melt them which is not advisable but surprising worked well...lol
£2.99 for a pack of 2.
These boots are for painting and my girls had a lovely time decorating them....They are perfect for growing herbs, cress or small plants and flowers. As a mother this is the sort of thing I like to receive on Mothers Day....Something made by my girls.
I actually took charge of making this....hehehe The girls couldn't decide on how to paint it and share the job of painting it....
Everything is already assembled and it just needs painting.....Each bird feeder comes with stainless steel rod which you put an apple on...I can't wait to get it out in the garden.
It was another great box from Baker Ross.....We still have a couple of things left to make. The Heart Wooden Keyrings and the Teapot Photo Frame Magnet Kits which the girls have said they want to do by themselves as a surprise for me for Mothers Day. How sweet.
