Mister Maker Watch And Make Volume 5 ~ Review

Mister Maker Watch And Make Volume 5 is one of the newest releases from Abbey Home Media.

I'm sure parents of any child under 5 need no introduction to this CBeebies character who uses everyday objects often found around the home in his fabulous craft projects. This DVD runs for over an hour and a half and contains 5 episodes of the TV show including -
  • Mister Maker Makes a Splattered Space Picture!
  • Mister Maker Shows you the Perfect Boredom Buster!
  • Mister Maker has Fun with Bubbles!
  • Mister Maker Makes a Brilliant Wrap Picture!
  • Mister Maker Makes a Space Age City!
We're familiar with Mister Maker, having before particularly liked one of his junk modelled cars and the almost infamous 'Beans On toast'.  There are tons of craft ideas in here to keep you and your children busy for weeks, if not months.
This DVD was great and my 4 year old is very keen to try the 'Splattered Space Picture', which is incredibly simple to make, but very effective, using splattered paint to create a starry backdrop, and simple brown paper ripped to rough shape to make craters and volcano-type mounds while his little brother was particularly taken with the 'Wobbly Eggs', created using a plastic 2 part egg which you would buy containing a toy and then usually just throw away.
My favourite is the 'Fun With Bubbles' Octopus, with bubble wrap tentacles!

I like Mister Maker because everything is simple to make and doesn't cost a fortune in materials. It also doesn't require the artistic talent that I lack. I can rip paper as well as anyone (maybe) and following his tips and guidance I can make a pretty cool space picture that's almost as good as anything my 4 year old can make!

You never know, maybe I'll post a photo if I become confident enough in my own abilities!

Abbey Home Media have kindly offered 3 x Mister Maker Volume 5 DVD's for me to give away to my readers. You can find the competition by clicking on this link.

We give this DVD 4/5 and will definitely be spending some time this weekend buying tissue paper and googly eyes!

Mister Maker DVD Volume 5 is available from all good DVD stockists 
and currently retails around £8

We were sent a copy of the DVD free of charge for review

  2. He does have some good ideas doesn't he - we watched one at the weekend where he made a can of 'snakes' so that is on our list of crafts for the summer holidays!

    1. I'm sure the can of snakes was on this DVD! Unless I saw it at the weekend on TV too. The boys were most impressed with that one too! :D
