Charming game for the garden
My daughter and her family own a wonderful cottage with a large garden on the Isle of Wight, which they love to escape to from their mainland home. The six-year-old twin boys adore the freedom there and love playing all kinds of games in the garden. On a recent visit to the cottage, I decided to make use of one of the logs from the garden and some of the pebbles collected on previous adventures, which I made into a noughts and crosses game as a surprise for the boys on their next visit. It was a huge hit, and now all their friends want one.
