Get creative

From crafts to baking, we've got all you need to keep out those isolation blues.

At this time of social distancing we are all trying to think of new ways to keep ourselves entertained and exercise our brains; and what better way to do that than start a new craft (or continue with your hobby of course). Whether you’re a complete beginner or, established at crafts, then we’ve got something for you!

Take a look at all the great craft activities we have below; and be sure to share your creations by using #WellChildGetCreative on social media.

Get involved


Wool Couture have kindly donated this lovely crochet pattern of Astra the Giant Unicorn to WellChild for a limited period of time

If you are a total novice at crochet or very advanced we hope that this is something everyone can get involved in! For video tutorials on a beginners guide to crochet please click here >> 

We are asking for a minimum of £4 for the crochet pattern, this covers the sale of the pattern and any additional income is a voluntary donation to WellChild. Get yours now>>

We would love to see your finished Astra so please share your creation using the #WellChildgetCreative


Cross Stitch

Stitchfinity have kindly created a new rainbow cross stitch kit, with £2 from every sale coming to WellChild. These kits are available in both adults and children’s patterns, so whatever age you are you can get involved in creating your very own rainbow! Rainbows, as many of you will know, are symbolic of showing solidarity and appreciation at this time of the COVID-19 crisis. 

NEW PRODUCT: The team at Stitchfinity have been blown away by the success of the rainbow cross stitch kits. They have now introduced brand new rainbow earrings and brooch sets too.
