....they both seemed quite pleased and intrigued with it which is a start. It's very simple, they just have to put the marbles in the top and then they musically run down the tree. I think it could also be quite good for communication if we withhold the marbles!
We were on holiday on the boys' actual birthday so I didn't go for full on cake baking and decorating this year. However, I do feel that it's my job to make them a birthday cake so I did this instead. I got the idea from 'Great Healthy Food for Vegetarian Kids' by Nicola Graimes. Charlie liked it but James clearly prefers bought cornflake cakes to mum's homemade ones!
