  • Heading to friends that don’t have children to play with. Taking toys, especially coloring pages is the perfect thing to keep them occupied.
  • Use at Christmas parties to give the kids something to do whilst they are waiting for their friends to arrive.
  • Use at playgroups.
  • Sit the kids down at a mother’s group on a table together and let them all enjoy creating some Christmas joy whilst enjoying some Christmas treats.
