Sparking Creativity With VeeMcDee Packs by Post
The boys really enjoy it when we get chance to sit and craft. So when VeeMcDee gave us the chance to try one of their Packs by Post I jumped at the chance.
VeeMcDee is run by Vanessa McDermott a mum of two with an extensive background in art. The idea of Packs by Post is to spark ideas and grow creative confidence in children aged 3+. Each month you will receive a colourful pack of craft materials through the post. There are no instructions, no right or wrong way to use the materials just lots of fun to be had. You can subscribe for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months.
The pack comes well packaged and fits through the letterbox and inside are lots of lovely craft supplies. We received A4 coloured paper, patterned paper, tissue paper circles in varying colour and sizes, twine, felt, coloured bubble wrap, tape and much more. I added some pva glue and scissors and let the boys create. It is so important to give children the opportunity to be creative without a set outcome. It really allows them to use their imagination. For me this one of the huge benefits of packs by post, it is about the process and they can use the materials how they see fit. As a mum it was nice to have a ready made craft session, no prep needed.
It was lovely to sit at the table with a cup of tea and watch the boys enjoy a craft session. I love Sebs garden with flowers, a pond and even a washing line. At 6 he now plans what he wants his art work to look like and is confident in how to achieve it. Alex takes a more relaxed attitude, his colourful creation is a mixture of everything.
