    I would just like to say what a wonderful Block Printing kit that I bought for an 8 year old. She loved it. It was excellent quality and well worth the money. Thank you Karen

    This was soo relaxing to do! All the craft kits at Dots and Blocks help promote mindfulness. I was a little sceptical at 1st – not because I didn’t believe it – just because I can never completely switch my brain off unless I’m walking in the woods 😂 I can’t really meditate all that well either as my brains so bloody busy thinking about random crap!

    I actually loved doing this, it’s really satisfying, I can honestly say my brain went quiet and I feel really refreshed and relaxed now 😍 Looking forward to doing more!
