This week the boy is all about having just a teeeeny bit less screen time. Having the usual iPad, laptop, smart phones knocking around, the Angry Bird Mario Super Fan can struggle to have anything but to entertain himself , especially if we're eating out.
I'm loving his 'Let's Make Some Great Placemat Art' book by Marion Deuchars, rammed with puzzles, different prompts to doodle. From empty plinths to fill with statues to mazes and the more common theme of creating a plate.
Admittedly the books a bit of a lump to take out on the off chance you grab a bite, I've torn out a few pages and rolled them up in my bag if I've planned ahead.
The boy loves it.
