I love to give a gift which will keep them quiet and relaxed for a little while at least (kind of the opposite effect to chocolate) and this one is a great gift for working on together for some quality time fun. My Beans love a craft kit or two and always have such a huge smile of pride on their face once they have completed it.
Rabbits Don’t Lay Eggs Chunky Board Book – Pan MacMillan
What can rabbits do?
Rabbits don’t belong in the farmyard. So it creates quite a stir when Rupert pops up. He tries to make himself useful, but he can’t cock-a-doodle-do like Cockerel, and when he tries to lay an egg like Dora the duck, it’s a disaster! Luckily Rupert is good at digging, which soon leads to the most unexpected farm job of all . . .
