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

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.
