... 3D Mini Scenes with eZee Beads ...

My 3rd instalment for the John Adams Craft Club and this time its for 3D Mini Scenes with eZee Beads.

The eZee Beads 3D Mini Scenes set lets you create charming 3D scenes using just beads and water!


Whats inside the box;
Over 1200 beads,
Bead storage,
Bead tray,
Plastic pegs,
Water sprayer,
4 Design cards.
Designs include owl, duck & ducklings, frog on a lily pad, snail & cute rabbit.

Makes 5 free standing mini scenes
Recommended age 5+



I decided to sit down with Ru after nursery whilst all the other boys were still at school and design our first ever 3d mini scene.
I let Ru pick which design we would do and he chose the cute little bunny.
The thought of making a pink bunny made him very happy and he sat there clapping whilst I sorted out all the beads into the bead storage pot.




Once the beads were all in a separate section we started on our design, Ru would get the right coloured bead and hand it to me.

Occasionally he did place the bead but he seemed to enjoy picking out the beads and watching me do the hard part.
We started with the green base and worked up, making sure all the beads were down before we sprayed them with water.

Once Ru had made sure every bead was covered in water we made our flower stalk using the bead pegs provided.

After spraying the beads with water it is recommended you leave them to dry for at least 30 minutes.
We left ours for around an hour and by that time it was really easy to peel the design away from the bead board.


Once the design was dry and peeled off the board Ru watched me turn it from a flat design into a 3D mini scene and he was more than impressed.
He was beaming from ear to ear and couldn't wait to hold his little pink bunny.

Both Ru and I were very pleased with the outcome and we can't wait to make more!

After School Fun With Lego Marvel Super Heroes.

Noah has been a big Lego fan since he was 3/4. 
My brother handed down his old box of Lego to him and it was instant love.

His room now boasts a mighty collection of Star Wars & Minecraft Lego and a array of mini builds.
He's even got a Lego Poke-ball which he made using a YouTube tutorial.

Also many other sets that have been long destroyed over the years are now in big lego heads waiting to be re-built.


Noah was sent some super cool Mighty Micros sets, which are now taking over his room.
The Mighty Micro sets come in a nice range of heroes
from Iron man to Wonder Woman.

I'm always trying to think of ways to get Noah away from his PS4 and to spend some time with me.
Lego is always the number one winner.

He will happily switch off the playstation and get stuck right into building.
I've always loved lego and will happily sit in his room having a build off.
Its a great way to spend some quality one on one time with him.



Noah took no time at all building his Mighty Micros.
They have an RRP of £8.99 which is pretty perfect if your looking for a birthday present for someone.
You get two mini figures & two vehicles in each sets.


Rupert even took a shine to the superman one and made my dad build it for him when he was up visiting.
I used to love sitting with my dad building Lego, so it was lovely to see him doing it with the boys.


Noah couldn't wait to dig into the Hulk lego set.
I dont blame him as it looked pretty epic.


We decided to make it a little more entertaining and have a race to see who could build their car the fastest.

Noah built the Green Hulk car and I built the Red.
We both finished around the half hour mark.

I love how when building the bigger sets, the bricks are nicely arranged into different bags, so you don't have to empty them all out over the table and risk losing the tiny important bits.


This Lego Marvel Super Heroes Hulk Vs Red Hulk set has an RRP of £49.99
The set comes complete with a She-Hulk and a Red She-Hulk mini figures, plus Hulk and Red Hulk big figures.


After the build we took them into the garden and had a little battle!
Who do you think won?!?!


Lego Marvel Super Heroes sets can be found in most Toy Shops.
