    It could be that instead of a pen they could turn a wand that might appeal to them more than a pen.

    Wand
    A Wand called Fischa

    What are their ages Woody, and when are their school holidays, I know it differs around the country.

    Excellent idea

    Perhaps some sort of age category, a 15 year old will probably have a better handle than a 9 year old .... That way Grumps kids could have their very own category
    I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was

     
     
  11. Thanks Grump thanked for this post

    Yes, that's why we want ages, so we can see if there is enough to split by ages, as you haven't said how old your child is we will have to give him/her a handicap although remembering how many segmented blanks you blew up maybe he/she already has one

    That's really good to see kids able to do something like that, okay that sounds like we have 3 so far, so come on people I know we have had pictures on here showing pens that your kids have made, we need more to get this going.
