|CREATE|Arty Ants Craft Bag Review

 We were very kindly sent a craft bag by Arty Ants for T to have a play with and review, it certainly didn't disappoint, the picture on their Facebook page (below) showed lots of crafty goodies.

 T couldn't wait to get stuck in which is why the bag was ripped open before I even got  chance to take a photo!
 
This is a brief overview of the contents: cards, buttons, flowery adhesive stickers, die cuts and feathers. A dolly dragon fly kit, hand decorating kit and paper craft hanging birds PHEW!  All this for just £2 + £1.98 P&P, seriously, if I had a little girl, these would definitely be our birthday party bags!
 
 
T absolutely loved looking at all the little packets and opening each one.
 
 
There were some great cut outs and backing paper for card making.
 
 
 
A bag of pretty sequins went down very well!
The first thing we made was a birthday card for T's Grandma, all we added were a couple of stickers.
 

We also made these fab birthday cards for my Mum & Sister.  The only thing we added here were some of the gems, T went a little mad with the ones enclosed and kept wanting more.
 
 
We decorated the hands and are using them for number practice, although T can count and do some very basic addition he doesn't yet recognise numbers so these are helping us master that!
 

These are all the supplies we still have, and we haven't yet made the dolly dragon fly or the hanging birds!  Arty Ants craft bags really are fabulous value for money, they would also make a great gift or as a rainy day project.  Really the only thing that we needed to add was glue!
 
Kelly runs Art Groups and a Book Group in Fleggburgh, Norfolk I only wish I lived nearer so we could attend.  Being the busy girl that she is, Kelly also upcycles unloved picture frames and makes them beautiful again.  We purchased the Union Jack one below for T's room which I'll review for you shortly.

  3. I have so much craft stuff (or crap as my husband calls it) but nothing beats someone putting it all together into a box for you and makes it so much more exciting. This one looks great #ToddlerApprovedTuesday
