For the sewing enthusiasts amongst us: a Scottie Doorstop (incl free pattern), we made ours from an old pair of crazy trousers! Perfect. The kids adore him, but I think he would make a great Christmas gift too!
"Sweet little metal box full of... mouses! Starting from this diagram of Mmmcrafts, you will be able to build from felt and fabric this house to hosting some small rodents that your children may carry wherever they want. Moreover, it would be a great corner to save their first loose teeth and change them to the Tooth Fairy for small treasures."
