Christmas Crafts with Baker Ross

Disclaimer: We were gifted a box of Baker Ross Christmas Crafts for the purpose of this review.

Christmas time is busy isn’t it!  What with several nativities, Christmas Fairs and family outings, sometimes its nice to just sit down with the kids and get creative!  This weekend was perfect timing to explore our recent Baker Ross Christmas Crafts box we kindly got sent out.  I think it’s so therapeutic and immersive getting creative!  I actually love it and find myself totally engrossed, often still at the table whilst the kids have lost interest and gone off to do something else! (Anyone else or just me?!)

 

I am also excited to share a discount code with you all so read on to find out more!

Anyway, with Christmas only a two weeks away, we all couldn’t wait to find out what was in our Baker Ross selection box and get started on our Christmas crafts and decorations! We’ve got such a lovely selection of craft items and  they are almost all totally suitable for all three of the kids aged 8, 4 and 21 months.  Some are a little more advanced so great for Miss W and Mr B, whereas I am sure Baby K will get fully into it with some help!

If you are not familiar with the brand, Baker Ross is a family run business that has been running since 1974.  They are one of the leading suppliers of arts and crafts to schools, nurseries and other educational establishments.  Baker Ross literally offer an array of crafting supplies and creative packs.  What I love about Baker Ross is that they offer kits with EVERYTHING you need to get crafting.  So even if you may not have all the necessary items at home, your kit will give you all you need to complete all the activities.  You can pick your arts and crafts by theme, or even just purchase supplies or party wear – they offer so much!

Our Christmas Crafts from Baker Ross

Christmas Tree Sequin Decoration Kits

Firstly, the kids chose to get creative with the Christmas Tree sequin decoration kit.  Within the kit is three Christmas Tree’s so perfect for my three to have one each.  It was quite tricky for the younger two to do this but Mr B managed this being 8 years old, so I would recommend this Christmas craft for the older ones.  They do look fab on our tree!  each tree comes with difference coloured sequins and plastic pins (not sharp) so each sequin can be added to your foam tree.

Christmas Robin Bauble Kits

It was lucky I had a few gaps on my Christmas tree as next up, we started on the Christmas Robin Bauble Kit.  Within the kit there is enough to make 6 robins, which come to life with felt, little card feet and some stick on eyes!  They look great on our tree and Mr B and Miss W really enjoyed making this, even becoming extra creative and adding their own designs with the paint pens from Baker Ross.

The only thing you do need for this Christmas Craft, is a little bit of glue to stick the Robins feet on!

Christmas Elf Door Kits

These were super easy and fun to make.  The craft kit offered everything you need to get creative with these Elf doors, and there was no need for additional glue.  All the crafts provided had removable sticky back, so all the kids had to do was peel it away and get sticking!

There was enough crafts left over so plenty was provided!  The kids thought these were really cute, especially as we are doing Elf on a shelf this year (again!)  Each kit comes with enough Elf doors to make 4.

Christmas Pug Wooden Decorations

These are super cute if you have a pet pug, or a lovely item for the kids to give them out as little gifts.  The kids used felts and crayon to colour in each pug.  A pack of wooden pug christmas crafts decorations each come with enough to make 10 and are only £.1,99 which I think is fantastic value!

Gingerbread Wooden Cross Stick Kits

This Gingerbread man activity was a little bit trickery than the rest, taking time to thread each needle and then show the kids how to work their way in and out of the holes.  Miss W really did need assistance with this one, but once she got the hang of it and saw the end result, she thought it was great! Each pack offers four Gingerbread men to stitch.

Christmas Tree Kits

These Christmas Tree Craft Kits were the favourite for Miss W.  Each pack comes with enough trees to make four, and I was surprised to see how much decorations were offered.  We spent ages making them and they look so lovely up on our windowsill.

Christmas Ceramic Decorations and Gingerbread House Tealight Holders

These ceramic Christmas decorations were a big hit and I was really impressed with the quality.  In each pack you receive 5 decorations to get creative with.  Each Christmas decoration already had ribbon attached so there was no messing around with cutting and tying ribbon to each one.  This was my favourite too!

And there you have it!  Baker Ross really offer a huge selection of Christmas Crafts, or any craft for that matter.  We have had a lot of fun this weekend and surprisingly not much mess made which is always a positive in my eyes.  I will definitely turn to Baker Ross for any future craft supplies I may need at home, especially at such great value.  I am really impressed with the quality of these crafts too, and will 100% recommend.
