Have you visited your local “The Works” store recently? My kids absolutely love it, even just to browse. They have so many different things on offer that I usually end up buying something. Everything is so cheap but good quality. They have everything for crafting, lots of school stationery, books for everyone, gifts, toys, and craft sets. There’s just so much to see and look at.
My kids have been off for half term this week (yes already!) However I do know that not every school has the same holidays and some have theirs next week. So if you’re stuck for ideas then perhaps head over to your local works store and pick up some sets or bits to keep the kids entertained for a few day’s (at least until Halloween) yes they have Halloween bits in too by the way.
Well The Works sent us over two of their top selling craft kits to be getting on with. These are of course great value too being sold at just £10 for any two sets and believe me the choice is huge.
We have Neon colouring and Neon stones. All the sets sold by The Works come with age guides and clear instructions. They have sets to suit most ages from the very young to adults and each one looks really fun.
We have this very funky Day of the Deaf colouring book set, timed perfectly for Halloween of course. The pens that come with it being neon markers which give a much brighter effect than normal felts. I’d say it’s more like an adults or teen colouring set than for younger kids as some of the designs are quite extravagant and complex with decorative skulls and other bits.
The pages all tear out too and if done right, would look pretty snazzy framed or even put up at Halloween.
Our next product is all about painting stones, or pebbles to be more precise. In this kit we get 3 plain large pebbles, some neon paints, normal paints, brushes and sticks for spotting plus a book for ideas. And here is a completed painted stone that Izebella did by herself.
You can see how different it looks from the unpainted pebble and they don’t take too long to dry either.
So if your kids are about to break up then why not pop down to The works or have a browse on line and keep them entertained for a few quid.
