We got our latest box of review items from Yellow Moon last week and I couldn’t wait to get started. We were sent a pack of ceramic baubles, ceramic tree decorations, glitter porcelain pens (pack B) and brilliant porcelain pens (pack B) to try out.
We saved them for the weekend when we had friends visiting. It always helps to have a few more small people thrown in to help with these reviews! Our testers were aged 1, 2, 3, 4, 35 and 36(!). First we made a start on the tree ornaments.
Everyone chose the shape they wanted to colour. Choices were: father Christmas, angel, snowman, tree, penguin and Rudolf. The pens were prepared as their instructions and the small people were lest loose.
H LOVES this sort of thing and being nearly 4 and a half is getting quite good. She didn’t make much mess and got to grips with needing the pump the pens a little when they looked like they were running out. She did a FANTASTIC job on her tree. The 3, 2 and 1 year olds were a bit messier, but they had fun and used ALL the colours!
The baubles were a little trickier for the little ones to hold and avoid getting paint on the table. You definitely need some sort of messy mat!
The glittery pens were definitely a big hit and I’ll be adding the other coloured pack to our craft wish list.
I’d also recommend aprons for the under 3′s!
The grown-ups had fun too!
Here they are all waiting to go in the oven to be fixed.
We had great fun using these and the finished ornaments will make great christmas keepsakes or grandparent gifts! I was thinking of giving mine to my mum! You WILL need to protect tables and smaller peoples clothes. The paint does wash off of hands with warm soapy water and a bit of a scrub.
These items were sent to me at no cost for review purposes by Yellow Moon. All opinions are my own.
