Mister Maker Gives Us an Idea: Watch and Make Vol.5 – Review and Giveaway!

Mister Maker has been VERY popular in our house ever since he hit the screens in 2007. JT was 2, but Mister Maker managed to keep his attention and enthrall him in his ‘makes’… and the shapes entertained too!

Now, 6 years on, he still gets switched on and his makes are still popular – with me too as a reception class teacher! Mister Maker’s projects often spark my imagination and give me the inspiration for projects at school!

When we were asked if we would like to take a look at the NEW Mister Maker: Watch and Make Vol. 5 DVD, released by Abbey Media I knew it would go down well – even though the boys are now 6 and 7!

The DVD has 5 episodes on it with a run time of 95 minutes in total! This for me is great as you can watch it in short bursts, an episode at a time, or can watch the whole thing if time allows.

This DVD is packed with great, simple ideas for craft projects from a splattered space picture to bubble wrap pictures and crazy carnival shakers. There is even an ice-cream cone game and space skittles – something for everyone!

The favourite in our house had to be the first episode, and the ‘Worms in a Can’ – who’d have thought that an old rubber glove and a cardboard tub (along with a few other things from the ‘Doodle Draws’) could be turned into something so exciting… and something that is great to play tricks on people with! Such a simple and easy project with a few household bits and pieces!

Personally, I loved the Splatter Space Picture – and I know that the idea will go down a storm in the classroom, particularly with the Aliens theme I have planned for next year! You can’t beat a bit of messy painting!

Because we have loved the DVD so much,  I am really pleased to be able to host a competition to give away not 1, not 2, but 3 copies of the DVD as prizes – so there will be 3 winners!

Each winner will receive their VERY OWN copy of the Mister Maker Watch and Make Vol.5 DVD from Abbey Media as a prize!

So, how do you enter?
