School holidays can be a great excuse to spend some quality time with your children, but with Easter and half term all falling so closely together; trying to think of ideas to keep your kids occupied can be challenging!
Arts and Crafts
are great for keeping your children busy. Sewing is not complicated, it appeals to both boys and girls, and your child will feel a sense of achievement at the end of their sewing project as they will have something to show for it.
For younger children the Animals Lace Up Cards by Djeco are great. A real picture that your child can sew; the kit comes complete with 3 pierced cards, 4 balls of brightly coloured wool, a round ended needle, and a step by step instruction book.
Suitable for children aged from 3 to 6 years, the completed cards can be hung with pride in any room of the house (although I'm sure you will steer your child towards their own bedroom)!
The Birds Paper Sewing Kit by Djeco is an excellent choice for children aged 4 - 7 years.
Designed to be suitable for little hands; younger children can find as much pleasure in creating as older ones. Once your child has completed this kit they will have a finished bird to hang up, and the look of pride on their face will be priceless!

For older kids, the Jewelery Animals Stitching Card Kit by Djeco requires slightly more skill to complete.
