With the Jubilee weekend in full flow, it was appropriate for us to make one of the activity kits recently sent to us by Little Creative Days. As the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert is tonight, we decided to make a crown so that we could have a king amongst out midst.
The 'Make A Crown Kit' is aimed at children aged 3 years and over (due to small parts) and comes with everything needed to make a fantastic crown: 1 plain crown cutout, 3 pots of paint (allowing the child to choose which colour to use on the crown and more than enough to use for other activities), a paint dip bowl, a quality brush, adhesive jewels and an instruction sheet.
The Boy decided he wanted to paint the outside of the crown red and the inside yellow. The cardboard absorbed the paint quickly and with only ten minutes drying time needed between painting and sticking, it was a quick activity to do which helped to keep his interest maintained.
The kit comes in a brown paper bag which makes it easy to put into a suitcase and take on holiday with you if desired. In hindsight, I wished we'd done this for the Jubilee celebrations tomorrow!
We were also sent a 'Father's Day Photo Frame Kit' containing a blank farm, 3 pots of paint, a paint dip bowl, brush and a selection of foam stickers. We haven't made it because we want to do so for Mr. TBaM and he reads my blog! However, more details can be found on Little Creative Days' website, along with details of all the other kits that they do. There are a range of kits for 0-5, 5-10, and 10+, priced from £4.99 upwards. I'm very impressed with the quality and range of resources and materials, the prices are reasonable depending upon the kit purchased, and the obvious difference to the subscription boxes is that you can pick and mix which kits you'd prefer.
We were sent these kits for the purpose of this review, my opinion is honest and unbiased.
