Marks and Spencer have a fabulous craft range for children and just before Christmas we were sent through a selection of goodies and kids craft kits to try out with the girls. The Christmas range were gorgeously illustrated and out of the box of goodies the girls made a beeline for the Christmas Tree ornaments that were for painting and decorating.
Next up they spent a couple of hours one morning, and even roped dad into the job of making paper chains. I remember making endless chains as a girl and was so happy to see this revival. The girls were delighted to see them strung in the living room for everyone to see.
We were sent some really cute masks that are so well made I’ve put them away for next year along with all our decorations as believe it or not they didn’t ruin, or break!
We made paper lanterns, 3D Christmas cards and we’ve spent hours playing with the gorgeous Christmas card games. There are three simple games to play, Snap, Matching pairs and Holly Wreath. I think you’ll agree that they are beautiful, they are sturdy and nice and big for small hands with simple designs on them making them instantly recognisable. RRP £3.50
Of course the M&S craft kits and games don’t stop at Christmas they are all year rounders and now the sales are on I bet you could pick up some fabulous games and party gifts. Personal favourites of ours are the Emily Button range and Lil’ Miss Arty, enough to keep you going all year there.
