Constructing this make is a great way of helping your child to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they paint, decorate and stick a range of materials together to create their bookend safe to hide their things in. They can experiment with different colours and textures along the way. The make is a bit complicated in parts so you'll need to be on hand in case your child needs some help.

How to extend the magic

When your child has made their bookend safe, help them put it somewhere in their bedroom and then let them stash away their secret stuff in private. No peeking! When they've finished, why not settle down with a real book and enjoy a story together.
