were delighted to be sent a couple of Christmas craft activities we could try
from Yellow Moon.
We had two sets of Christmas decorations and two sets of
porcelain pens to make them look fabulous!
It ended up being quite a MESSY craft session so I would think carefully
in investing in some craft aprons or something suitable to protect your
Sometimes I cheat and get them to craft outside to reduce
chaos in the house, but it’s getting too cold for that now! I just noticed Yellow Moon have a super

I think the Ceramic Tree
decorations for £4.99 are great value as after the fun of the activity you
can enjoy admiring them on your Christmas tree.
Decorations made beautiful by your own lovely children are more
treasured than any you can buy from a shop.
We also had the Ceramic
Baubles for the same price and again I feel it was a bargain, because it
did keep my boys out of mischief for some time! Even hubbie was getting in on the act, not wanting to miss out.
The pens are more expensive at £9.99 for each pack
of five. But they are very versatile
you can use them on glass, plastic and metal too. So useful additions to craft
supplies and we still have plenty left over for when we brave a similar
activity again. All that is left to do
is add their masterpieces to the oven to be heat fixed and viola we can admire
their creations for years to come.
You have to give the pens a good shake before you get started!
My only other tip would be to encourage a gentle dabbing of
the porcelain pens; eldest soon learnt with force his decorations could be
literally flooded with colour! But on
the plus side least he was embracing his creative urges…
