Get Your Craft On: National Craft Month

It's never too young to start kids on creative projects. It's so helpful for their little developing imaginations, not to mention hand-eye coordination.

Brought to you by Spotlight

Last week I attended Spotlight's launch of National Craft Month.

The event was set in a funky, industrial part of town, which I feel naturally lends itself to creativity. There is so much you can do with a shell and raw materials! I mean, check out the pendant light in the photo above.

I digress.

The venue looked completely gorgeous and showcased many products and crafts that you can find in Spotlight stores.

Want to see what I sampled?

Mums- make Spotlight your first stop when it comes to birthday cakes! Roberts Confectionary products are Australian made mixes and decorations that require minimum effort. The batter is self-levelling which leaves way more time for the business of decorating.

Quality Control

The kid-friendly event played perfectly with my daughter because she already loves arts and crafts (and trips to Spotlight). Whenever I need supplies from Spotlight she gets to pick out a craft (call it a bribe but with purpose). I set her up at home with her stickers or paints and she tinkers while I get work done.

It's never too early to start kids on creative projects because it aids their little, developing imaginations, not to mention hand-eye coordination.

Serious Concentration

If baking, colouring and scrapbooking aren't your thing check out this gorgeous knitted throw made from Australian Marino wool. I need to make one of these for my living room. Chunky knit blanket 4 Lyfe. Learning to knit has been on my to-do list for YEARS.

The cherry on top of the event (pun intended) is getting to see the lovely and ever-stylish Elle from the blog Cherry and Me. Check it out for some gorgeous DIY inspo, styling tips and check out her new store with beautiful original art prints.

Spotlight are holding free in-store events on weekends throughout, Facebook live sessions and featured projects on their website throughout the month of March.
