Time to get Spooooooooky!

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

The leaves are orange and gold and the weather has turned, school is back in and it can only mean one thing….Halloween and Bonfire night are just around the corner.  Aside from a fantastic excuse for children to get some imaginative dressing up in and munch lots of sweets and chocolate (as if they, or I for that matter, need an excuse!) , it’s also a pretty good time to enjoy some  good ol’ crafting. With a half term approaching, we have a lovely selection of Halloween and Remember, Remember inspired toys and crafts to fill the days.

Budkins Gwen the Witch

Djeco craft kits are among the most fantastically unique and imaginative, so it’s of no surprise that they have some super kits inspired by this season.  The kits I have been most impressed by are the Djeco stitching cards. Far from being simple lacing card type kits, they combine simple stitching techniques with quality threads, sequins and sturdy card to give satisfyingly gorgeous textile art end results.  The Witches Stitching Cards kit is a great example of this.

For a fireworks fiesta you need look no further than the Djeco Chalk Markers City Lights Kit or just the Chalk Markers themselves for those who prefer to work without a template. These unique markers can be used again and again on the background paper, which can be wiped clean. Vibrant bright colours on a black background are perfect for those firework night pictures.

For those who enjoy some quiet Hama-time, there is the incredibly popular Midi Hama Glow in the Dark kit and also the wonderful Midi Hama Beads Small Gift Box – 3D Spooky for some fantastic 3D ghosts and ghouls to put beside your pumpkin.

For a less messy pumpkin craft, pop over to Craft Merrily for some of the Tulip pens in glow. Use these pens to create an intricate and unusual design on the outside of the pumpkin and avoid the gunky mess (and foul burning smell!) of a traditional carved pumpkin. The Sculpey Glow in the Dark kit is another great alternative for Halloween decorating.

Budkins - Bones the Skeleton

The lovable Le Toy Van Budkins have their own spooky range of characters from crafty Gwen the Witch to Dracula to Bones the Skeleton. Turn your Dolls House into a spooky haunted house with the help of these wooden figures.

Baby Stella fans will be pleased to know that we have a new outfit for Baby Stella so that she can join in on the trick or treating fun. The Baby Stella Dress Up Kitty Outfit is purrrrfect for turning Baby Stella into a witches cat.
