Getting Crafty With Yellow Moon Ready For Easter

We were sent a bundle of craft products, as we are one of the Yellow Moon bloggers.  It came in especially handy as the boys had a friend each over for dinner, the eldest and his friend were both quite calm and peaceful but youngest and his friend were a little more wild and feral.  It was a blessing to have something in the house to distract the younger pair of boys!

The little activity packs are really useful if the weather turns and you cannot get everyone outside to wear them out.  Plus children are always proud of their creations and it’s a good way to build confidence using different materials and learning to follow simple instructions (like making an Easter keyring).

The table got messy with glitter glue and feathers everywhere, but it was well worth it to keep everyone occupied for a bit.  The foam buckets at £3.50 were an instant hit, after decorating you can add some paper (topically called “Easter grass”, a big packet is only £1.75) and nestle some treats inside.  If you worry they might be having too much chocolate you can make the Easter Keyring Kits (£3.49) and put a keyring inside instead, add a chick jet ball (£1.99 for 6) and perhaps a Ceramic Egg Coin Box (£5.99 for 4) - all of which will be quite exciting for kids!

The Easter Crystal Glitter Stick-Ons (£2.99) were quite popular with everyone.  They enjoyed sticking them on their Easter cards (we were sent the Chick & Bunny Pop-Out Cards £2.75) and foam buckets making them look the part ready for an Easter celebration.

You can see the full range for Easter on their website.  I think there is a good selection at affordable prices.  Seeing as the sun has gone back into hiding a spot of crafting is one way to pass the time productively and enjoyably (without wanting to pull your own hair out!).
