FLOWER PRESSING

My children and I have had a wonderful week at my parents house in Oxfordshire with their 3 cousins.  All 5 children have been outside from 7am till 7pm building dams, swimming in ponds and yesterday building secret dens and flower pressing.  My 6 year old niece has especially enjoyed using the Flower Press

Step 1…Discover

Choose which craft kit to make….Daisy chose Boris the Badger Travel Buddy which comes in his own suitcase, with all the pieces to make a Badger Toy, his blanket and passport.

Step 2…Make

The Badger Travel Buddy comes with pre punched holes and a plastic safety needle which means that a 3 year old can genuinely make their buddy with only a little help. The other felt pieces are big stickers which are also easy to assemble.

Personalised Party Bags

 

Crafty Wrens have had a lot of fun working with 4 year old Lecky’s mother to make 22 party bags for his birthday party today.

Kraft paper ‘chip’ style bags, personalised with a hand printed ‘LOVE LECKY’ message.  Each bag contains a Crafty Wren kit, beads for the girls and Racing Cars for the boys.  4 year old craft kit heaven!  We had to include some bubbles and sweets but each crafted to make them a bit more interesting than the norm.
