As well as colouring in and designing their own individual pair of slippers, children will be able to colour in the tissue paper and leaflet included inside! The best part is that the Slipkit box itself is jam packed with activities from word searches and mazes to dot to dots, as we endeavour to ensure as little waste as possible.

There are also new bead embroidery designs just in from VDV, producing these brilliant artworks from Ukraine during these troubled times. We love the simplicity of this horse portrait titled Lightning, the movement of the mane and fading out of the edges makes this 3D effect.

Simply follow a row and thread each bead on a half cross stitch to build up the design. Needle guide marks are also printed to help keep stitches even.
