My two boys are always drawn to computer games. I was thrilled to be sent a selection of Buttonbag craft kits to distract them from gaming! These are lovely kits. Everything is included and they are attractively presented.
They have such a diverse range of products. Its so satisfying seeing the pride of your children when they have successfully completed their creation! My eldest was so happy giving his owl keyring to his nain. My mum was delighted to receive it and am sure it will be treasured because it was created with love.
Sleepy Friends Keyring Kit
We were sent the Sleepy Friends Keyring Kit (£9.99) which is a good starter set. It’s not too complicated to begin with.
My eldest said the sewing was fun as it was something different to try. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. It was a calm and quiet activity for my boys to enjoy. I think they need that sometimes, a pastime that is a bit more peaceful.
Furthermore, sewing is a useful skill for children to learn. My husband is better at sewing than me. He fixes the kids clothes when they break! Perhaps if I had done more craft kits when I was a child, I might have been better prepared! I am all for my children learning practical skills and Buttonbag is the place to pick up everything you possibly need.
Puppy Love Buttonbag Craft Kit
We were also sent the Puppy Love Buttonbag Craft Kit (£12.99), with which you can make three cute little puppies. This kit is contained in a suitcase box which is useful to keep everything safe afterwards. Again, you get the thread, pins and needles, pre-cut felt shapes and stuffing! I love that you don’t even have to worry about needing anything extra before getting cracking with your craft project!
Boy Craft Book
The Boy Craft book (£12.99) looks fantastic, lots of inspirational ideas of crafts we can try at home. This will be a valuable resource over the school holidays. I will always have suggestions of activities to keep the boys occupied.
Win Two Buttonbag Craft Kits
I have a competition to win two Buttonbag craft kits, Puppy Love mentioned above and Rainbow Friends (£12.99).
Rainbow Friends Buttonbag Craft Kit contain everything to make six new friends! Using bendy pipe-cleaners, wooden beads and felt, no sewing is needed. This set is suitable for children 4+, everyone in the family can get crafty!
I will also throw in their fab Boy Craft book as I was kindly sent two copies.
