If your kids are into crafts then this set is a bargain buy it just £3.95 from Argos. The Chad Valley Make and Create Sock Monkeys was priced at £9.95 for the set, so that's now less than half price.
This craft set contains everything you need to make three cute sock monkeys, plus full instructions to show you exactly what to do. It does say it's for ages three and over but I would expect it to be much better suited to older children unless you are going to be doing the actual cutting and sewing for them.
This is a clearance item so stocks are not available everywhere, but when I checked there are some areas with stocks in every store, and some areas with none at all so it's a bit hit and miss. If you are lucky you can pick up one of these fab sets and pop it away for a rainy day or the next school holidays.
