DIY mum


Told you guys/girls I'm ever so creative !
My son will become 5 in July but we always celebrate this one month earlier in school, so he can give a treat to the other children and he gets to wear the 'crown' a whole day in class and school...
Each year around this time, I get this great idea (inspired by others and things I see around me) to make a special treat and try to be a bit different in the making of...
So, this year we chose a little gift bag, with a (home made) drawing card, sweats and some little other playtoy I still have to look for...Maybe you guys can help me out.
It's this little flat box with a picture in it - some tiny shallow holes and tiny silver balls, the player has to get in those holes...know what I mean ?
What's the correct 'word' for this ?
Looking at the picture, maybe I have to add a little box of crayons so the kids will know they have to colour the card that's inside the bag...see, even as we write/speak, inspiration keeps flowing ....

Ah I know what you mean by the game with the holes and balls in...but the name escapes me too:(
I think it's sweet that your son shares the joy of his birthday with his classmates too and the gift bag is a great idea :)

Sorry Dominica, I don't know what those little games are called either ... I'd definitely put some crayons in there too.

Lovely idea :) I hope your son enjoys his special day.

Aww, this is so nice! I love the card. I always wished my mom were more into arts&crafts when I was little, so we could make things like this, hehe.
