There is a story to tell in this village – the shop is run by two sisters Brigita and Doris and when they were young they caught the eye of two foresters who were also brothers. The foresters are called Alf and Bertold and they lived in a little cottage on the edge of the village just where the forest starts. One day…. Oy! What about those kids?. Sorry got carried away, we love telling stories here in TheBigForest.
Right, first get those kids colouring ……and drawing all the detail! There are four sheets in the pack so plenty to do.
Next cut out and glue the buildings together (PVA or double side tape works well) and slot together the trees and people – its super simple.
Ta da! Your kids have made their own village!
The cut out and colour in village makes a great gift or stocking filler, a Christmas Eve treat to keep kids occupied, or a Christmas party activity. Recommended age 6 to 10. And look out for the cut and colour railway and farm coming soon so you can add to your village.
We have to be honest and say adults love this miniature world too, and it makes a great mantlepiece tableau for the festive season if you colour in lights and decorations on the trees.
I want one, mmmm I thought you did, so rush over to our Not On The High Street Shop if you are in the UK (available now) or Etsy if you are in the USA or the UK (the kit will go live on Etsy on Monday 11/11/2013)
