More Crafting with Baker Ross

As a Baker Ross Blogger, I've been lucky enough to try out quite a few items from their toys and crafts range (you can read all my BR posts here). C really loves having something to do and at 2 years old he is already very artistic!

In our most recent box, we received:

The first thing that C spotted was the Penguin Rubber Ducks. He's learning animal sounds at the moment and he knows that ducks go "quack quack" so he has been carrying around with him telling everyone "quack"! 

Next we gave the Gingerbread House Photo Frame Magnets a go. I let C sit with the foam house the I peeled the backs off the foam pieces to stick on and pointed to where to stick them. He did them all by himself and I'm very proud of how well he did for a 2 year old! All the foam shapes came already cut, you just had to pop them out and follow the design on the card - easy! 

Next, we tried the Christmas Tree Felt Bookmarks. The pack includes 8 trees and ribbons to thread through the top. In order for C to decorate them I cut some of the Self-adhesive glitter sheets to look like tinsel and had him stick those one. I think he did a great job! He gifted one to his granny and grandad. 

With the Coloured Bauble Card Blanks, I let him loose to create his Christmas message with some felt tips. He decided however, that he wasn't done using the sparkly 'tinsel' stickers so finished it off using those! 

The Pom Poms, I felt, were a little old for him so I did the majority of it. Well, attempted it. I don't know if I'm just a bit dim, but I could not get my head around them. I tried them dozens of times but each time, something different went wrong! They're such a great idea and I've read other reviews where they have worked out fine but I think they're a bit too fiddly for me! The instructions are pictures only, maybe I would have 'got it' more if they were labelled.

C absolutely loves his Baker Ross boxes and as always, I cannot fault the quality.
