Art Attack Tuesday – Tiny Tigs Craft Kit Review

on June 5, 2012

This week is a special #ArtAttackTuesday as this week we are featuring  a series of crafts that we have done after we were very kindly sent a fab kiddy craft pack to try from the lovely Catherine at Tiny Tigs

Tiny Tigs come up with 3 imaginative craft ideas, gather everything you will need to do them and send them to your door! Fabulous, what more could you ask for, if like me, you need a little creative push!

This week we received a pack that included:

  • Royal Crowns
  • Union Jack Bunting
  • Decorative Wall Vase with Flowers

My little girl is still quite young and the kits are designed to be used by children aged 3+ so we enlisted the help of my good friend and neighbour’s children, who were only too happy to oblige!

First up they dived into the Union Jack Bunting! They were able to follow the directions easily (with a little guidance when it came to measuring lengths of the straws) and had the task competed in no time! Below are some pics I took along the way. I think the bunting will look great for our Royal Jubilee party!

Next up came the Royal Crowns, this pack had loads of fab glitter, jewels and stars to stick onto pre-cut crowns. They loved doing this, the only problem we had was that we could have done with some pva glue, which we didn’t have so we had to make do with prit-stick and the jewels didn’t stick great with this (but this was something we should have thought of and realised we needed in advance).

My daughter especially liked the crowns and was keen to try them out and give them her royal approval once the others had finished (well almost once they had finished!)

Admittedly my friend’s little boy didn’t want to make flowers and their tea was calling so my daughter and I (well ok I, mostly) had a go. It was really really simple to do and looked very effective when complete! The only thing I didn’t get time for her to do before bed was to colour the vase. But what do you think?

We had great fun making the items we had been sent and the themes tie in perfectly with the up-coming Jubilee celebrations so we will be able to get lots of use out of them too.

The monthly fee for Tiny Tigs to deliver exciting crafts to your door is £11, not too bad for three different activities and all the instructions and items you will need! Not to mention the hours of entertainment!
