When it comes to children, school holidays can be hard work – some more than others. I find October and February half term the most difficult in terms of entertaining the children with the weather often wet and cold, and limited ideas on how to keep them occupied when you’re cooped up in doors. This half term Present Mill have launched Half Term Craft Club where they have a fantastic range of crafts to share with your children to keep them entertained.
We have been enjoying the Gift in a Tin range which is quite simply, a gift in a tin. With a fantastic range of animals and figures, some requiring sewing and others requiring gluing and sticking, there is something for every child whatever their age, interests, or ability.
The great thing about these sets is that they include everything you need to make the finished product, so there’s no rushing out to buy emergency crafting materials, or getting half way through and realising it’s going to cost you the earth to finish. It’s just one price, everything you need, and full instructions which, if you aren’t crafty minded like me, is always a bonus!
The girls couldn’t wait to get stuck in over half term and Eva chose to make this gorgeous giraffe which is lovely and soft and perfectly sized for little hands. Once you have filled the giraffe with the stuffing provided you simply need to stitch up the small opening at the back and you’re done!
The set comes with a plastic needle and thread, so no sharp points, and Eva managed to stitch it up in no time with a little help from myself helping her to finish off and cut the thread.
I think Half Term Craft Club is such a fun idea and one my kids will really get on board with. Present Mill are offering one lucky winner the chance to win the adorable Milly Mouse with an RRP of £11.99.
