It is Big Bro’s sixth birthday. I struggle with presents. Ethical thinking makes it a bit of a difficult road to navigate with young boys who love plastic and flashing lights and all things Star Wars or Superman.
The Village hall was having a clear out and these metal document cases were about to go in the skip – aaaaaaaarghhhh!!!!! NO! not more land fill. Surely I could put them to good use.
So with a bit of a clean and some trusty Duck Tape, I decorated some folders
hung them in the box
and after a good clean, added a bit of decoration on the outside.
I added a pen I bought for Big Bro from the Turner Gallery in Margate (thus supporting the arts)
which is also a screwdriver, spirit level and ruler.
Now that should be fine for a 6 year old boy shouldn’t it?!
I’m keeping the other metal document case for Little Bro’s 4th birthday in a couple of month’s time, because, if it is a success, I am guessing he will want one as well.
