Are your kids complaining they’re bored, despite the mountain of ruddy toys they’ve conveniently forgotten about? Well look no further than Tygertale’s handy selection of things to make and do over the last few days of the Christmas holidays.
First of all from the Ladybird Book of Things to Make, a false face, ideal for the budding young Occupy protester.
Or how about a 1950’s style bank robber from Easy to Make Puppets?
Maybe a character from the latest TV hit?
And here’s a rather brilliant way of bringing the three together in their own show.
Once they’ve tired with making stuff then here’s a couple of pages from a book that combines nonsense poetry with mazes. Obviously.
The Edward Lear Book of Mazes was the brainchild of everone’s favourite puzzle ‘n’ jumper loving Tory, Gyles Brandreth. The best thing you’ll get from a Conservative in 2013.
And finally get yourself a dice and some coins then ask your chums to join you in playing Beryl the Peril’s Daftest Game in the World.
Happy new year!
