No electronic games, no TV.
Little man was bored.
He got out his tin of marbles and retrieved a discarded shoe box from the bin.
Hours of concentration with scissors and reams of sellotape,
resulted in 'The Marble Bazaar' ...
All cut from the one box,
with a few additional decorations!
Shoot the marbles through the holes.
Buy magic carpets!
But snakes guard the bazaar.
Lose points if you hit one ...
Mum and dad enjoyed playing too!
A place to store your marbles at the back,
just pull up the door to release them ...
The sun shines on the Marble Bazaar ...
It's good for children to be bored.
Boredom inspires creativity.
