This weekend we made the most of the good weather and had an early Halloween treasure hunt. Baker Ross had included a number of Halloween inspired items in our last craft box, so on Saturday Monkey had some friends over and we set about getting crafty. First we made some Halloween inspired pictures with glitter foam stickers on black card. The kids loved peeling off the back of the stickers and were busy putting cats on broomsticks and spiders in webs.
We then set about making some Bat Treat Buckets to fill with Halloween treasures.
The kit contains
- 3 foam buckets
- 6 bat wing pieces and corresponding glitter highlights
- 3 bat faces, noses and fangs
- 3 sets of eyes and corresponding backings
You do not need anything in addition to the kit. What I really like about the Baker Ross kits is that they are such good quality. All the pieces are sticky backed so they are easy to put together. Being just three they did need a little help with sticking of the wing parts and also attaching the wings to the buckets. If they were eighteen months older then they would have probably been able to put the baskets together without any help at all. Monkey seemed to enjoy doing the face the most.
They did not take long to complete just over 5 minutes, ideal really because as soon as they were finished the kiddies wanted to fill them up! Here are the finished buckets:
We headed out to the garden where we had hidden some chocolate treats, as well as some little party toys which Baker Ross had also sent us – Skull Whistles and Squeezy Flashy Hedgehogs. The hedgehogs seemed to attract their attention the most especially when they discovered that they lit up when bounced on the floor.
They had great fun hunting for their goodies and filling up their little buckets. If you would like to run the same sort of activity for your little ones Halloween get together, you can find the Bat Treat Buckets here they retail at £3.60 for a packet of 3, or £16.50 for a packet of 15. Baker Ross also stock a large number of party bag toys or items such as the ones included in this post which would be ideal for a treasure hunt.
What plans do you have for Halloween?
I was sent the Bat Treat Buckets Craft Kit and other items featured in this post by Baker Ross for the purpose of a review, all opinions are my own.
