Are you a creative person? Are your kids creative kids? Well here I have the perfect activity for you all to enjoy.
It's called Sequin Art and it's something to get stuck into for hours of relaxing entertainment.
Sequin Art is a British brand. Everything they sell were designed and manufactured here in the UK and were made to be loved by both children and adults.
Adults have said that Sequin Art craft projects have really helped with keeping their children entertained as well as helping themselves with boredom. But it is also said that it can really help out with depression, anxiety and stress by being a super therapeutic activity to do.
We were sent 6 Sequin Art sets of all different ranges to try out and they were perfect for the entire family.
You first need to pin the picture or the black dotted sheet to the foam. This is what you will be stabbing the pins into. You then thread the pin through the sequin hole and place it into the correct spot onto the template making sure that it is cup side up which will give it an extra shine. It is as easy as that.
I thought the kids may find it quite difficult threading the pin through the hole but they didn't struggle at all. They also found it quite easy to push the pin into the base. I was also worried them pricking their fingers may put them off but they barely pricked themselves and when they did they didn't seem to care. But if you are worried about pins, there is a Pin-free version that can be bought.
The activity kept them entertained and quiet, and it was something that we enjoyed doing together. Lily and I did the kitten, her sister Jessica decided to do the mermaid, and Emily and her daddy decided to do the fox together.
The finished result looks lovely. They are super shiny and colourful and are going to look super pretty on display in their bedrooms. Lily was super impressed with the finished results of hers. She says she would love to do more of them which is a great thing to hear.
