  2. What great stuff to make!
    My mother was quite creative in play activities with us back in the 1950s (pre-Internet). We made butterfly nets with coat hangers, created crystal gardens with coal and other ingredients, rode on stick horses made from a broom handle and an old sock.

    1. Sorry for the delayed reply Sammie - in my head I replied to your ocmment, but it's only now I have realised I didn't (oops). Ooh yaye another primary teacher by trade - how cool is that. Like I said above to Stephen - you are never too old to play with play dough, goop and rainbow rice!
