Pollyannas need only apply…
One of the loveliest gifts I have ever received for my children is a crystal suncatcher (Thanks Leonie!). It hangs in their bedroom window and sends rainbows whirling round the room when the light catches it. Anyone who has read Pollyanna will know what I am talking about. Apparently hippies love this kind of shizzle as the crystals are supposed to be all healing and chakra balancing or something. All I know it that the rainbows make me feel ridiculously Pollyanna and my kids love chasing them. The great thing is that you can get a suncatcher or crystal rainbow maker on-line for around £6.99. Simply string it up with a pretty ribbon, present it in its box et voila, a Christmas gift that will elicit oohs and aahs without breaking the bank. Babies love staring at the lights from their cots and most children are elated to be given something so shiny and jewel like that turns into a magical light show. www.amazon.co.uk
Our suncatcher. Yes, the windows need a clean and I really should wind up the hose.
More rainbows in action.
