I was there, along with glitter to make Christmas cards and cutting holes in folded paper to make snowflakes :) Simple fun

I was always making stuff as a kid, including decorations like these, great fun :) Ask a kid to make something these days and the reply will be 'can't you just buy one'.

We used to nick the bottles from round the back of the local corner store and take them in the front door for the money 😀
