We’ve been getting crafty in the kitchen again with some great Baker Ross Easter and Spring themed activities. First to catch Monkey’s attention was the Easter egg fuse bead kits (available in a pack of 6).
We’d had a mishap with our last fused bead set, but this time our set came complete with three sheets of ironing paper – phew.
Monkey decided on his preferred design and we set to work. The sets are supplied with hanging cord but Monkey prefers them without.
A great idea for an Easter Egg hunt are the Mini bird house gift box decorations (available in a pack of 10).
Colour in the house and before finally gluing it to that, pop a few mini eggs inside. Then complete your house and string up around the garden to add a different dimension to your egg hunt.
Now the Arrow wooden plaques (available in a pack of 3 with hanging cords) were meant to be for an Easter Egg hunt too, but Monkey had other ideas. Mummy we can go on a Treasure hunt.
So the scene was set. The arrows can be painted but Monkey used his felt tip pens and decided against any added decorations.
He then used his Bunny pop a crayon (available in pack of 5) to colour in some lollipop sticks to make his ‘X marks the spot’!
He loves painting the different Baker Ross ceramic sets and decided that the Bird ceramic flower pots (available in a box of 4) would make a great present for a bird mad friend’s birthday later in the year.
The Hobby line ‘brights’ porcelain paint pots are easy to use and apply, with paint brushes.
Once the paint was dry, I placed in the oven, turned the oven on at 160 degrees and left for 90 minutes. Once baked, I turned the heat off and left the birds in the oven until cooled. I think our friend will love her new flower pots don’t you.
I have to say that our favourite Baker Ross Easter and Spring set had to be the Tissue paper flower kits (available in pack of 6).
They are so simple to make (instructions come with the kit) and the effect is fab.
Monkey has filled his bedroom with flowers, although I’d quite like to see them in a vase. Flowers that never die. What more can you ask for?
