Easter Cards : Easter Holiday Fun & BIC Kids Colouring Set Review

Easter Holiday Activities: Making Easter Cards

It’s Henry’s Easter holidays which means time to engage in some Easter fun! Here is a showcase of some Easter cards Henry has made courtesy of the BIC Kids Set!

Easter is a wonderful time of year. For me it signifies Springs arrival and it’s all pastel colours and pretty flowers. Of course Easter has a religious purpose but despite the fact that we teach Henry the stories of Easter’s meaning, I can’t lie and say we are heavily religious because we are not. We still celebrate Easter though and for our family it signifies time spent together enjoying good food and good company.

Easter in Manchester

Since we moved to Manchestereaster cards six years ago, it’s often just us three over Easter. Not that I’m complaining it means there’s no stress or pressure to host or attend anything and we can easily and simply take the weekend as it comes. However it is always nice to spread some Easter cheer to family and friends near and far. Usually I will purchase a bunch of easter cards from the supermarket but this year Henry was excited when I suggested we make some of our own Easter cards.

BIC Kids Set

We were kindly sent a BIC Kids Colouring set to create some Easter card creations! The set contains 36 colouring items which are perfect for all different craft activities!

The Pack includes:

  • A fabulous 12 Kid Couleur Ultra Washable Felt Pens – Music to any Mums ears!!
  • 12 Evolution Extra Resistant Colouring Pencils!
  • 12 Plastidecor colouring crayons

One thing I hate about buying pencils and pens is trying to feaster cardsind somewhere to store them all so they remain together and don’t take up too much room. What actually happens is they experience circumstances similar to that of socks in our house and end up never seeing each other again. Have you ever run around your house looking for a pen despite knowing full well you own half of a small stationery shop to no avail? Well in our house it’s not limited to ballpoint pens, this scenario covers all arts and crafts supplies too!

One major selling point to the pack is that it contains felt pens, pencils AND crayons so regardless of what project your little one wants to embark you can be prepared! The colours are bright beautiful and bold perfect for making our Easter cards!

Henry’s Verdict

Henry loved making his Easter cards with his BIC Colouring Set. One thing both Henry and I loved was that everything was easy for his hands to hold. This probably sounds ridiculous but Henry is now writing and at school they are teaching them to form letters and words on a smaller, neater scale. This is much easier to practice with a thinner pen, pencil or crayon as oppose to the thicker kind.

Mums Verdict

I think the BIC Kids Set is fabulous!! I love that everything is together in a practical, compact case and the colours are bright and bold. The pencils don’t break and the crayons don’t leave mess on your hands! To top everything off the felt pens are washable which means no ruined clothes!!! I have to be honest sometimes I am reluctant to get the art supplies out because the mess can overwhelm me! #badmother I love that I can throw this set in a backpack and we can create artwork when we are out and about as well as just at home!!
