Crowns, Wands and Fairy Dust: An Asobi Ambassador Review for Seedling NZ

We have been making magic!

making magic

Matilda Mae magic with the help of Asobi and new creative children’s company Seedling.

We are proud and delighted to announce that we are an Asobi Ambassador and will be working closely with them to tell you about lots of exciting toys and play resources.

This month we have been crafting with Seedling. Seedling have a wonderful range of creative kits and toys for children. Their range is best for children aged 4 and over so Esther and William are a little young to make the most of the craft kits but they loved having a go and they adored playing with the props that we made.

Seedling is all about giving children the opportunity to explore their world and their abilities. A child’s natural instinct is to get involved, give anything a go, think creatively and ask questions. I love the ethos of the company and the creativity of their products. They would make great presents for family and friends.

We have been testing two craft kits and some rather lovely fairy dust!

Together we have been able to use the products to dress up as fairy kings and queens and send wishes over the sea to Baby Tilda in the sky. We have had a wonderful time.

You can read more about how we used the magical fairy dust here.

Before we went to the sea we made wands and crowns using the very generous kits from Seedling.

We started with the crowns.

crown1

The kit includes all you need to make a beautiful sparkly crown.

We began with the plain pink felt crown and adorned it with colourful felt butterflies, sparkly jewels and glitter glue.

Esther and I worked hard on the princess crowns and it was lovely. We talked about colours and patterns and making things symmetrical.

Esther worked very carefully and it took a lot of concentration and control to use the glitter glue.

CROWN3

This is great for developing fine motor skills and the finger strength required for writing.

William is always reluctant to write or draw or do anything that requires him to hold a pen so I was bery happy to see that he too enjoys using the glitter glue pens.

Making the Seedling crowns though was just Esther and I.

We enjoyed lovely mummy and daughter time.

When we had made the two crowns we had lots of jewels and glitter glue left over and we are still using them now for different projects.

The Seedling creative kits give you all you need and more for each project.

At around £12 a kit they are brilliant value for money.

The results are stunning too.

When the felt crowns were dry and ready to be worn

They can be fitted to any head size with the included ribbon

It threads through the felt in ready made slits

You can then tie it around the head to the correct size

Simple and effective

That is how I would describe Seedling kits

Creative, simple and effective

And because you have everything that you need in the box they are great for taking away on holiday or round to Grandma’s house.

I think the kits are also wonderful for things that young children can do independently if mummy has to be busy doing something else

Like feeding a Rainbow Baby!

After we had finished our crowns we started on the wands

The My fairy Wand Kit is again recommended for 4 years and up

And this time I did much of the making

Taking instruction from Esther and William

I am not much of a crafter I am afraid

So the results are not brilliant

But I really enjoyed making these wonderful wands

Again everything that we needed was beautifully packaged in a cardboard box

The instructions were clear

The materials great quality

I was ready to go

To try and make a magic wand

First I wound the coloured ribbons around the wooden wand

This gave me flashbacks of maypole dancing

I always seemed to wind the ribbons the wrong way

I tied the tulle the best I could to the top of the wand

And then attached the jingle bells

What a lovely addition to a magical wand

We love jingle bells in our house

Baby Tilda did too

I am certain that our wands do not look anything like they should

But Esther and William liked them

And that was good enough for me

We used them for our special Matilda Mae day

And now they live in our dressing up box

And are played with most days

As with the crown kits the materials given for the wands are generous. We have enough tulle left over to make little tutus for Esther’s teddy bears and dolls.

The Seedling kits come in many forms crowns and wands for magical days are just the very start

Making memories with Seedling is easy to do and they have something for every occasion

You can create a tiara, a dragon, a superhero mask

You can colour the galaxy or colour the earth

You can make a bow and arrow, design a wooden shield

Seedling offer a world of imagination and adventure

For children of all ages

For families with all interests

I urge you to go and have a look at their website and I am certain that you will spend ages browsing and I know that you will find at least one thing that you like

I have a very long shopping list

And at the top

At the very top

Some more of the magical fairy dust

Something so simple that can transform and transfix

A magical edition to imaginary play, story time and making birthday wishes

A magical way for two siblings to see their wishes travelling

Across the sea to the sky

To their baby sister in the sky
