Getting ready for the summer holidays {Baker Ross review}

crafting with sand

We really are on a count down to the Summer holidays now. The children have a few weeks left and the calendar is filled with parents’ evening, class swap days and (my least favourite day of the year) Sports Day.

Whether you’re at home or abroad you may be on the look out for some things to keep your children occupied. On our recent trip on the cruise ship Ventura I packed a few little craft kits in our suitcase. They really didn’t take up much room and were perfect for that crafty fix my children seem to need on a regular basis.

Baker Ross kindly sent us some of their latest craft kits to try out and I’m going to share some of our favourites with you.

The set of Sealife Spiral Notebooks was a big hit.

There were 4 notebooks so my children were able to choose their favourites to make.

Sand Art pictures are always popular with them so they enjoyed the Seaside Sand Art Pictures. The only problem was finding containers to hold the sand!

They also liked the Elephant Mosaic Magnet Kit

And had fun with the Dinosaur Wooden Photo Frames.

As you can see, we have been busy crafting our little socks off, all thanks to Baker Ross!

    These are such a great idea, especially as we don’t seem to get the brilliantly sunny summers we got when I was a kid, wet days can turn out to be expensive days too.

      I’m dreading poor weather during the school holidays. These craft kits can be a life saver if we do have bad weather though!

    Wow, I guess the activities kept you all very busy.

      They were all quite short and sweet, perfect for after school or keeping them busy whilst I cook dinner!
