It took me a little too long as a parent to realise that the most engaging toys aren't really toys at all.

Christmas is on the horizon and I am beginning to feel a mild degree of panic as I contemplate the complex world of gifting. Predictably, I'll leave everything until the last minute meaning you'll probably find me in the wee hours of December 24th wielding a glue gun to whatever over-ambitious handmade gifts I've attempted. I'm not sure I can muster the enthusiasm.
Last year I came up with something pretty good for my niece, Miss Daisy (Daughter of Rebekah over at Just For Daisy)
I'm calling it a garden play dough kit. It's a somewhat open-ended collection of objects that I thought might make a delightful small world for a little girl (or boy).
