We have been busy at home doing all sorts of things and with school holidays coming up I have to find some boredom busters. There's nothing that will make you crazy than to hear "I'm bored!" all day long. You can't go past anything that's crafty for the kids. They love to be imaginative and CleverPatch understands how important it is for a child's development. In short CleverPatch are about craft that helps kids to explore ideas and understand their world. They have an online craft store bursting with soooo many good things that are also inexpensive ready for you to keep those little hands busy with great things. Did I mention it's Free Freight?? Winning!
Since Easter is just around the corner my daughters really got stuck in to making these Easter bunny and Chick decorations. My little 3yr old boy decided to help out with the sticking part as they are self adhesive which makes craft easy. Aren't they so cute? Each project comes with it's own instruction sheet that's easy to understand and follow.
These felt love-hearts took a bit more time to piece together and require some sewing (yay for that!). My 8yr old daughter needed only help with threading the wool into the plastic needle but it was childs play for her finishing and gluing on everything else. I love them and she'll be giving to a few friends at school.
She surprised me while I was cooking dinner the next day with these Felt Mirror Owls. I think they are adorable and they have a hidden mirror in the back. All the crafts are pretty easy to put together and they are not only visually pleasing but also when you have them in your hands they feel great.
CleverPatch have a wide range of crafts for all the kids to enjoy. You may like their cardboards Sea Animals or the Terracotta Flowerpot. They have a fantastic range of markers and crayon silks. I'm loving the wooden clock making kit too. Pretty much anything you can think of, they got it for you to create. Such an awesome site.
I pretty much want to order everything on the web site. My daughter has chosen the clay items. Don't stress too much about picking the perfect item, whatever you choose it's all about the experience. In CleverPatch words: We're about the doing stuff. So go on and have a browse. You'll be so glad you did.
