PRODUCT: Usborne - First Stencil Cards: Christmas (www.usborne.com)Usborne First Stencil Cards: Christmas

DESCRIPTION: A box of 12 simple card stencils with a festive theme. Each card measures 175 x 114mm. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: This set of Christmas stencils from Usborne is a fantastic buy for young preschoolers, and one which will stimulate their creative side in a simple but very effective way!

The box contains twelve robust and durable cards, each with a different shape cut out of its centre. Each shape is different, but all are simple designs of Christmas related objects that young children will know and recognise. These include a Christmas tree, stocking, bell, snowman, crown, Santa hat, present, candy cane, angel, snowflake, decoration and star.

Each stencil card is in a bright striking colour, with a corresponding colour picture of the cut-out shape in the top left corner, and a one-word description of the picture next to it (e.g. snowman). The back of each stencil has a fun pattern of either stripes, dots, stars or snowflakes.

The stencils are really easy for your child to use, and ideal for developing children's motor skills, coordination and object recognition: simply lay the stencil on some paper, draw inside the shape, and then add detail and colour - perfect for making homemade Christmas cards, gift tags, wrapping paper and decorations for friends and family!

BAD POINTS: The cards may inevitably become bent, worn and drawn-on with repeated use.

PRICE: £5.99
