Can you believe it is nearly Christmas! Both my children can’t wait to celebrate this festive season. Baker Ross have sent us an exciting range of Christmas crafts. We have received their Christmas crafts collections which include the Angel Peg Doll Kit, Gingerbread Decoration Sewing Kit, Snowman House Kit, Nativity Lantern Kit, Christmas Present Foam Stickers and Christmas Tree Craft Decoration.
This is my tenth challenge as a Bostik Blogger and this month’s theme is Halloween. Once again, I have received a crafting box packed with coloured paper, ribbons, foams, Blu Tack Glu Dots, Blu Tack Glu & Fix and many more Halloween themed items.
As we were provided three mini paper plates, we decided to make three different types of Halloween paper plate crafts: Pumpkin, Spider and Web.
Last week, Anthea Turner joins Vivid Toy Group to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Thunderbirds TV series which launched on 30th September in 1965. If you are a big fan of Blue Peter, you probably remember that Anthea Turner’s demonstration of building a replica Thunderbirds base using papier-mache and toilet paper tubes. The beloved 1993 home-made creation caused such a fuss Blue Peter was inundated with requests for an instruction leaflet, which is still available online.
This year represents the 3rd time Vivid Toy Group have launched Tracy Island as part of their Thunderbirds toy range. Having already been listed in a raft of Toy retailers’ Top 10 Toys for Christmas, Hamleys Boys’ Category Manager believes that the new, Interactive version is a sure fire hit: “Tracy Island stands out as the one to watch this Christmas and a complete sell out is predicted.” She continues: “It’s amazing that 50 years on Thunderbirds still has the power to engage with children and adults alike, it’s rich history remastered to a 21st century audience has only strengthened its appeal and place as an iconic British brand.”
The presenters’ original Blue Peter Tracy Island model is unveiled alongside the new Interactive Tracy Island. How awesome is that!
We love Duck Tape in this house as it comes in so handy for so many crafts! We have made so many things using it. Recently, we have received a range of their Halloween-themed Duck Tapes: bats, pumpkins, white, black and orange.
So we decided to make a Halloween Hat for a Halloween party! To make this hat, you would need to use a big and small bowl to make a template.
This is my ninth challenge as a Bostik Blogger and this month’s theme is back to school. Again, I have received a crafting box packed with coloured paper, ribbons, foams, Blu Tack Glu Dots, Blu Tack Glu & Fix and many more.
As this month’s theme is back to school, my daughter decided to make a pencil holder and to decorate it with the fabric that was provided.
Recently, I came across Bink Creations. They are a service that turns your children’s artwork into a truly unique keepsake object (Figures, Fridge Magnets, Gift Tags, Jigsaws, Keyring or Stamps). It allows your child to turn their imagination into reality, bringing their creations off the paper and into real life.

This summer, we have not only been keeping ourselves busy on our feet, we have also had fun doing crafts together. We have received this range of Frozen theme crafts from Flair. They are: the fairy lights, jewellery box and shaker maker.
Recently, we came across Qixels at a local shop and grabbed Mr K’s attention immediately. They are almost like beados and fuse together once dried! Qixels are small cubes which can be used to make pictures/characters and then you use water to fuse them together. This is suitable for aged 4 and above.
This is our eighth Bostik Blogger challenge and this month’s theme is holiday. We haven’t any real plans for a summer holiday so we decided to make a Frisbee game to play.

You wouldn’t believe that it is summer and yet we are once again trapped inside our home by the rain! Last week, we had friends come over and the weather was really bad. Luckily, Baker Ross sent me a range of their craft kits to entertain the children.

We just had our sports day last week and both of my children have been very keen to do more sports activities in this warm weather! So we made these tissue paper batons to use in a relay at home.
