The Madhouse kids got some of these little Snowman Mosaic Foam Activity Kits in their stockings and they had great fun this morning making them, still in their pyjamas and snuggled under the blankets on Madhouse Nanny's settee !
They're dead easy to do, even for quite young children, because the different squares are coloured as well as numbered so that you know which coloured squares to stick where, even if you don't recognise the numbers.
The little foam squares are adhesive so you just have to peel the backing paper off then put them in position - they stick firmly but can be peeled off and repositioned if really necessary. I found it easier to peel the backing paper off in one go, rather than on each individual square which is quite fiddly.
They're quite small kits so they only took about half an hour to make - perfect for keeping the kids busy while they waited for everyone else to get out of bed !
The finished designs look fabulous (you can't see the glittery white of the snow squares that add some festive sparkle) and the little string to tie into a loop means that they are great to hang on door handles or in the windows in the run up to Christmas.
