A home for our 'Zuzu' pets

#4 is a natural garung guni (rag and bone man). She loves to horde stuff that may come in useful one day. One of the things she likes to collect are moon cake boxes. They are so elaborate she feels it is a pity to throw them away.  The shape of these boxes prompted her to recycle them into a perfect little home for her toy mouse.
She gathered some scrap cloth and cotton wool to make some beds, pillows and rugs to furnish her little toy house. 
She cut the fabric into the size she needed.
She's showing her 2 little cousins how to sew a pillow by stuffing some cotton wool into the cloth.
#4 asking them to choose the colours to decorate the windows.
Viola! A nice cosy home for their zuzu pets to live in.
Sane tip: Once you teach them how to sew, they can create lots of things by themselves. It greatly delights me to see their pride in their own creations.

Save tip: The best toys do not have to be expensive.
