One thing I have tried to do less of this year is buy plastic crap. And by this I mean toys really.
Although it is very hard at Christmas time with all the I wants, I wants.....
I have tried to steer Rhianna around to home made fun. Which is quite easy really as she is 6 years old and impressed by almost everything.
In fact, when I got out of this bed this morning she gave me a little clap...but I digress....
Here is a "toy" that Rhianna and I made together.
It's made from a CD gift box. I have decorated and divided with ribbon and then bought buttons for the counters. I then put sticky dot velco on the box and the back of the buttons.
Hey presto, a game of noughts and crosses.
