To get small people to
go a-thriftin' fire up their imaginations try 'growing' an easy crystal tree...
It's quite pretty. Even when it is 'growing' on your kitchen bench... and there are certain sacrifices that must be made when you want to go a-thriftin'.
And hey, it's great for small people to learn in a fun, pretty way! Especially when it wiles the summer holidays away... and when it means in exchange that you get to take a little trip to exciting shops? Definitely worth it ;-)
