The love that Sebastian has for the great outdoors and nature knows no bounds and he has an unrelieved attention span for a 4 year old. When you have children despite all your best efforts the toy situation reaches critical mass long before they can walk and talk so when Joe and I get them gifts for birthdays and Christmas we work really hard to make them things that will engage them for a long time as opposed to nonsense that does nothing but take up space in the house.
This year I was inspired by an image I saw on Pinterest, after following back links for quite sometime I tracked it back to The Merrythought. It gave me the idea to create something similar for Sebastian’s birthday this Summer.
I found a vintage travelling bar case on eBay and decorated it with line drawings using a Posca marker. Sebastian loves Stag Beetles so that had to be pride of place on the front of the case.
Inside I added a few sections with plywood and used an old belt of mine to make a slot for the book.
The kit was made specifically for Sebastian and his interests and passions you can easily adapt the contents for your child.
