Fin was sent some brilliant kits from Milly & Flynn recently, and what better way to bust boredom than to save them for half term and get them out when he’s BORRRRRRRRRRRRED.
Which, apparently for this 7 year old, is often.
What Exciting Milly & Flynn Stuff Did We Get?
We got 4 of the following awesome Milly & Flynn kits…
Milly & Flynn Giraffe & Crocodile 3D Foam Puzzles
These tactile, thick foam puzzles made 2 very cute animals that have been integrated into Indi’s (3yrs) animal themed bedroom.
Fin and Indi enjoyed popping out all of the foam pieces.
The giraffe one was considerably more detailed, so it required a bit of adult help.
The teeny giraffe spot pieces were quite tough to get out of the surround, but the crocodile one is a lot less detailed so is probably better for younger hands.
To assemble the animals, you follow the steps on the back of the box.
Fin (7yrs) did need some help following the instructions of the giraffe, but the crocodile was fine.
The results are really cute, as you can see below.
The finished animals are perfect for displaying in a bedroom or playroom like we have.
These 3D foam puzzle kits have the RRP of £7.99 per kit.
Milly & Flynn Puzzle & Grow Windmill
This brilliant, interactive, ‘match the numbers’ style 3D puzzle engaged my very fidgety 7 year old for about 30 minutes, whilst Indi enjoyed sewing and watering the seeds.
The intricate design of this puzzle is really nice, I thought.
I left Fin to this one whilst I did some fun chores, and he did a brilliant job of assembling it.
Fin is quite bright with numbers, so the fact that this puzzle was numbered, really heightened his enthusiasm.
Some of the parts are quite fiddly, and a little fragile (a couple of bits got broken), so best if the older kids enjoy this one.
A lovely twist to this puzzle is the seed planting.
Indi really enjoyed planting the seeds, and especially loved the watering.
Then the water bottle hit the spot with Beau (1yrs), who loved squirting water on the floor whilst we had fun with the puzzle!
I really love the finished look of this puzzle.
I think it looks great on our conservatory windowsill!
Even though the seeds are taking their sweet time to grow, the interaction with the windmill’s little garden enthuses kids far beyond the making of the puzzle, which I love.
These Puzzle & Grow Windmill kits have the RRP of £12.99 per kit.
Ginger Fox Cake In A Mug
My kids love cake.
They especially love helping to make cake, and this mug is absolutely perfect for our family.
We just need 5 of them to stop the squabbling over who gets the first mug cake!
I love anything that makes my life easier, so the fact that the measurements are detailed inside the mug is perfect!
No weighing scales, no tins or ovens!
All you need is the mug and a spoon.
My camera battery died so I wasn’t able to take photos of the finished mug cakes, but my kids LOVED them.
I had to make two cakes to share between the three of them.
One dairy free cake that substituted the cows milk with oat milk, and we did a plain almond flavour cake instead of chocolate.
Both tasted good, and the kids gobbled them up fast!
The Cake In A Mug can be purchased for the RRP of £7.99.
Why Milly & Flynn Kits Are Good For Families
This half term has been made more fun with these crafty kits.
We find it quite hard to find activities suitable for kids ranging from 1 to 7, and in each of these kits was something for each of the kids to do.
We’ve had fun popping out all of the bits of the 3D puzzle, we’ve made the windmill, planted seeds, watered the seeds, made and eaten cakes.
We’ve also played with the foam animals and watched the seeds grow.
