House Mouse Rainy Day


The challenge is NOT A CARD.  I repurposed a big matchbox and made cards to go inside.  This is for grandchildren who are always saying "I haven't got anything to do".  I got ideas for activities from the internet.  Another matchbox shows what it looked like before.

This is such a great transformation project, and a fantastic way to make a monotonous day interesting. I like the cute animal scene with the huge red umbrella, and from what I can see the suggested activities sound like a lot of fun. The big matchbox seems to be the perfect size for a game like this, even to give as a present. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

Hugs, Veronika

What a great idea Carol, and so beautifully executed too. Trouble is my DGC would say they didn't want to do any of the activities...
Stay safe
