Our Christmas Baker Ross Fun

Now is the perfect time to stock up to keep the kids busy in the few days between school finishing and Father Christmas arriving. It seems like no time to me, but to a 6 and an 8yo those few days feel like a lifetime. My nephew is two and a half and I have the delightful honourΒ of stocking up his craft box this Christmas and my 9 year old niece loves to create, so straight to Baker Ross to sort all these craft dilemmas.

Our Christmas Baker Ross fun took place last weekend, which was lucky as our house is full of poorly people this weekend. Although, not sure who had the most fun, me or them! I loved adding some old buttons to these felt tree shapes with some PVA glue, and then we cut up some glittery paper sheets and decorated these card bauble blanks. It took me right back to being at school before Christmas again!

And we also got the tree, which I will share some pictures of eventually!

Baker Ross sent us a box of things to test. We supplied the tea and biscuits.

    The joys of Christmas crafting! As you know I love a button craft. I’m regretting not buying a real tree this year πŸ™

I'd love to know your thoughts!
