I wanted to make small changes, and keep the changes, rather than attempt to change it all and fail. One thing I had never considered, was my toothbrush.

Toy Story Character Aqua beads – Review

Aqua beads are a great craft activity for children aged 4 and over. My 6 year old tried out the Aqua beads Star Wars Playset before Christmas, and loved being able to independently make something. I won’t lie, I liked being able to drink a cup of tea in peace while he makes them too!

The set contains templates for 3 characters; Buzz Light year, Woody and the Alien. A plastic tray, water spray bottle and enough beads to make each character. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Continue reading →
