Craft Surprise kids packs

June 12, 2014

You might have bought a Craft Surprise Pack from me or you might be wanting to make your own. Buddles of crafty items to let the kids loose on.


These surprise craft packs are meant to inspire creativity - they are not uniform, they are all individual, they are all a little bit different, they are meant to be explored and inspire the imagination.


Inside you MAY find any of the following: paper, scrapbook paper & items, items from magazines, old books, calendars, ribbons, pencils, stickers...... but really anything can be included. The list below has even more ideas. Then the list below that has a whole lotta games to play with the surprise packs.


Have fun and make things up, be inspired by what others have done but don't feel you have to follow all the rules!!!! Also check out my Craft Ideas pinterest page:

I feel deflated

un-known, un-knowing

my enthusiasm constantly dripping away


I feel tire...
