Easter crafts with Baker Ross – Review

March 14, 2016

Regular readers will know that Dexter and I really enjoy our crafty activities and with Easter really sneaking up on us so early this year, we have been enjoying our time together doing some Easter crafts with the help of Baker Ross.

We were sent quite a large box of goodies and I was so excited to open it. Inside we received Easter bucket buddy kit, Easter honeycomb decoration kit, spring bird foam stickers, pastel coloured sand, Easter egg sand & glitter art decorations, Easter stampers, egg bounce balls and some chick plastic eggs

Dexter was very excited to get started but I wanted to get a picture of everything first which really tested his patience. We had a look through to see what he wanted to make first. He chose the Easter egg sand and glitter decorations.

With a little help peeling, Dexter was pretty much able to create some fantastic eggs that looked surprisingly neat considering he’s not even three! After making quite a bit of mess with the first one, we decided to put the sand into his paint pallet and give him a spoon for sprinkling it. This minimised both the mess and the wastage and made it so much easier for him to do himself.
They come in either packs of 10 or 30 and are priced at £2.75 or £7.50 respectively. They were so easy for him to do himself and enjoyed by all of us, me especially and I’m 32! I can see these being a big hit for play dates in the future and I would definitely order more as Baker Ross also do Christmas and Mandala ones too. Great for keeping in the craft cupboard!

to make the Easter bucket buddies. The buckets were pre-made and came with foam stickers to decorate them in three animal themes. Each one had its own instructions but they were simple enough to make without those and just a picture to look at. I Cant wait to use these for our easter egg hunt. The Bucket buddies are £3.60 for 3 or £16.50 for 15.
We haven’t used the other Easter crafts yet but we plan on using the stickers to make some Easter cards for the family and we have a play date this weekend when we will use the honeycomb decoration kits.

We were sent these  craft supplies from baker ross in exchange for an honest review. All opinions and views are our own

      This was our first box from them, I’m so impressed! I’m totally going to put in an order for the mandala sand and glitter decorations
