As mentioned before, we were sent a huge box of Crayola goodies as part of our Crayola Blogger program. I was really impressed with a lot of their products, including the Creations range. It's more on the design side of crafting, including fashion and beauty. We were sent Crayola Creations Hot Heels and Nail Deco Kit, and Abby really loved them!

The pack of 5 Hot Heel kit (rrp £19.99, suitable for 6 years +) comes with 5 different shoe models, and a good selection of decoration materials (including sequins, ribbons, stickers, etc, plus a roll of double sided sticky tape) to inspire the children to get creative with their designs. 

Abby had fun creating a Disney Frozen inspired shoe, until she saw the sparkling sticker sheets and got carried away with them! I must admit that they are very pretty! I also love the combination of the paper flowers and sequins!

There are 9 designs to collect, where 4 of them comes in same style but different colours. But there is so much you can do with one design, children can keep collecting and re-designing, making them perfect for the future shoe designers!

Nail decorations has become an art as well! It used to be plain colour with a choice of shades and glitters, but nail art has become so popular now, many aren't satisfied with their nails anymore unless there is a pattern on it. Children can practise 3D nail art with Crayola's Creations Nail Deco Kit (rrp £7.99, suitable for 6 years +). It comes with a blue nail marker, nail stickers sheet, 2 toe separators, a 3D silver nail pen, and 2 nail varnish (1 transparent, 1 pearlescent pink), giving them plenty of fun to create affordable and fun nail art!

Abby loves getting her nails painted, and she was really happy with the kit and what each pen does. It appeared that the nail varnish are water soluble, which to me is great as nail varnish remover can be harsh on children's delicate skin, and the fumes from them are really not good for children. Abby was a bit upset when the design was removed, but she was happy again after I told her that she can wear them every day after school without me bothering her to get them removed before bed time!

There are a lot of other Creations craft kits as well that'll certainly inspire children's design and creativity skills!
