Baker Ross Valentine's Crafts

As part of our role as Baker Ross Bloggers we occasionally receive little boxes of craft items to try out. C gets really excited when he sees the box because he recognises the branded tape along the box. He kept excitedly repeating, "the man brought me crafts!" when he saw this one. The theme was Valentine's Day and Spring.

I'm just going to talk about the Valentine's bits in this post and do the Spring ones in a separate post.

Here's what we received in our box:

 I'll touch more on the Spring bits next time, but the Valentine's bits were:

Heart Pop-a-Crayons (£1.99 per pack of 5)
Heart Stampers (£3.60 per pack of 10) 
I also used the 4-Part Multi Paint Pad (£3.60)

Initially when I saw the Heart Pop-a-Crayons, because it just says "Fun Toys" across the top, I thought that's all they were - toys! I eventually opened them out and a wave of nostalgia came across me. I loved these types of crayons when I was little. C thought they were really cool and they were easy for him to pull off and find another colour by himself. He struggles with the ones that you have to push up the inside of the plastic "pen". He did go a little hard when colouring and break a few tips but losing one doesn't mean that you can't connect the rest. These are so handy for carrying around in the changing bag for meals out, rather than a big box of pencils or crayons.

Stampers are C's favourite. He's only ever used regular bottled paint so he was a little baffled by the paint pad. Once I showed him how to get the paint on by pressing the stamper down, he took to it like a duck to water. Sometimes even getting a little too carried away with the pushing - he looked like he was Hulk-ing out! I love the chunkiness of the foam stampers. They're easy for his little hands to hold. He and his daddy made me a very lovely Valentine's picture.

You can view the range at the Baker Ross website and you can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.
