We received another fab box of stuff from Yellow Moon to review – this time it was a festive box of goodies!

In our box was: Festive foam glasses, Reindeer gift bag kits, Star mosaic wand kits and a Christmas paper pack.

Penguin sewing decoration kits, some fun festive toys and Santa felt stickers.

 

We took our box of goodies to a friends house. The kids loved everything and wanted to do it all in one afternoon. Lucky for us the weather was rubbish so we managed to get through quite a lot! The kids ages are 6, 5, 4 and 3.

They LOVED the festive foam glasses and did a fab job making them with minimal help needed from the grown-ups.

The Reindeer gift bags went down well and look awesome!

The star mosaic wands kept them busy for a little longer and once made there was a lot of turning people into frogs! The fun toys have also been thoroughly tested by all and we made a few Christmas cards, which I’ll post picture of once they’ve been posted out to family, using the festive paper and cool Santa felt stickers. The kids loved sticking the little faces on the bodies they had drawn!

We’ve still got the penguins to make ready for when the tree goes up next week.

All items were sent to us by Yellow Moon for review purposes. Opinions are my own (well, and the 6, 5,4 and 3 year olds this time!).

Well, our box of summer craft fun arrived a few weeks ago from Yellow Moon and as usual I had to fight the girls to get photos of the contents before they started immediately crafting!

A set of animal sand art bottles and fluorescent sand.

Monster foam finger puppets, space wooden shapes, Animal glasses card blanks, Gnome suncatcher stakes and Beach hut stained glass decorations.

There’s a huge choice of the sand art bottles available and the girls LOVED filling them up with the different colours….and then shaking them up so the sand all got mixed together! Don’t they look pretty (before the shaking!).

All gnomes were carefully coloured in with our glass pens and are ready to fancy up the veg patch once we sew our salad seeds at the weekend!

I love the stained glass window crafts – they’re always a winner with the girls. This one is mine! :)

These are the wooden space shapes all out of the packet. The girls coloured them in the felt pens then covered them in glitter glue!

I think I might drill little holes in the tops and hang them from the girls ceiling once I’ve had a go at a few!

RAAAAAAAA! We have a very colourful lion. C loved these animal glasses and carefully coloured 3 in in a variety of rainbow colours!

All in all another fab box of craft stuff provided by Yellow Moon for us to review. The range of items they have is great and you can always get something to match any theme!

 

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.

 

Our latest box of Yellow Moon goodies arrived just before Christmas and it was packed full of fun things to make as always! In fact with the rubbish weather these have been invaluable!

Here’s what we got: Giant Chinese paper lanterns, felt pens, owl bean bag sewing kits, create-a-calendar, firework glitter foam stickers, snowflake foam wand kits, Chinese dragon scratch art magnets and lantern kits. PHEW! This may take a couple of posts to get through everything. Continue reading »

 

We’ve been busy making valentines cards this weekend. Here are a few simple ones you can make with your small people! Continue reading »
