Spring in the UK is one of the most beautiful times of the year: the sun comes out, flowers bursts into life and animals awaken from their winter slumbers. However, spring isn’t quite all sweetness and light, there’s plenty of rain to contend with too, as the infamous April showers force us to spend many afternoons inside. But instead of sitting there looking longingly out of the window, you can make the most of your time indoors and get stuck into some fun crafts with the kids.
The unicorn and ponies sticky mosaic set is a great product and Laura had hours of fun playing with it. Although the box seems a little sparkly, the end result is really very effective. Thoroughly recommended.
I have to admit that I wondered why anyone would need a book to doodle in, but upon passing The Boys’ Doodle Book 2 to Maxi my voices were silenced.
The premise of Table top origami is great; more fun at the dinner table which, if you have children, can be quite a stressful place. Of course, you can use this anywhere but a flat surface is a must. I had visions of us creating and laughing and being generally very clever with paper. We also liked the wide variety of things you could make from a paper aeroplane to a samurai hat and from a croaking frog to an ice-cream cone.
As a mum who is always on the look out for toys that are not branded and are ‘home made’ I was thrilled with the Creative Charlie jewellery making kit. I loved so many things: the ethos of the company and the fact that they have obviously taken time to source quality items being the two main ones. The beads were made by woman’s cooperative; the labels are biodegradable; the shipping packaging recycled. If you’re looking for a great ethical gift idea then look no further.
