REVIEW: Cotton Twist Activities & Gifts

First things first – this arrived beautifully packaged (and letter-box sized). Inside the brown cardboard box are four sections, each with a different activity related to the theme of ‘Adventure’; they are suitable for 3 to 18 year olds. We received a generic version, although I understand the boxes can be personalised; this is a lovely idea as children love to receive their own post. The box immediately appealed to me as there’s virtually no plastic, just lots of natural materials including wood and paper. Almost everything needed to make four attractive crafts is included, except for felt tip pens (and we all have plenty of those!). The crafts are: Superhero Mask with stick-on jewels , decorative eye shapes and glitter glue. Pirate Catapult with pegs, lolly stick, wooden spoon and elastic band. Wild West Headdress with feather cut outs, self adhesive gems and glitter glue. Model Aeroplane with cut outs, pegs, & lolly sticks. Each comes with a neat little instruction card, and the activities are easy for children to follow on their own. The end result is lovely and the materials are a joy to use. This is a lovely idea and there are many more similar crafts on the website, so plenty to enjoy.

What Cotton Twist do, in their own words:  “An inspiration for parties & play, we pride ourselves on making activities & gifts you’ll love to give, & children will love to receive. Nostalgic, chic, simple & inherently satisfying, crafts draw upon a palette of raw materials from lolly sticks to boxes, & from twine to felt. Wave goodbye to all that plastic! Crafts are carefully designed to spark learning & play in a fun & imaginative way. A world of make believe is ready to be uncovered.” See all the lovely Cotton Twist products on their website; you can buy the Adventures box here, priced at £12.95 (January 2019).
