Crafternoon in the sun
Grab some chalk from Kmart, Nextra Gifts or Thrifties, some masking tape from Woolworths or Coles and create your own masterpieces on your driveway or outdoor pavement. Trust us, for such little equipment and thought, it's a hit with the little ones!
For the little ones with a keen eye for insects and wildlife, why not try a bug catcher/creeper keeper from Kmart. Who knows, you may have a future Entomologist on your hands!
