Ages ago, someone gave one of my kids a pack of miscellaneous crafty objects for a birthday. That pack included a bundle of multi-coloured icypole sticks, I assume intended to be used as part of montages or pasting crafts.
Well, they've never been used that way, but last week, they were put to another use in play!
The kids made pictures with them
and then decided to lay out a trail for their littlest sister to follow to find her "treasure" (a storybook and a chocolate frog) at the end.
Much hilarity, and a half-day in the school holidays, done and dusted!
