Do you have little kids in the house? They love creative crafts and then, of course, they want to give their creations to someone they love as a gift, eager for applause. With Christmas coming, start a craft box with a few basic supplies so they can make amazing little gifts for family, friends and teachers. A handmade gift is always special and unique. There is pleasure in the making and then more pleasure in the giving.

This game is perfect for all ages and can be adjusted by skill level to allow for several to play together at the same time (a must in our homes)!
