Our latest DIY craft project isn’t just a brilliant knick-knack for your home, it also makes a great gift!

If you have pretty pebbles lying around your home, you can create this adorable “no water” cactus “plant” in a jiffy.

All you’ll need, apart from the pebbles, is some gravel, a little pot, and paint materials. Best of all, your toddler can join you in this fun project! Creating something together is a great way to spend quality one-on-one bonding time with your kiddo. Besides helping him develop his fine motor skills, you can take a peek into his creative thought process.

Once you’re done, wrap up this handmade souvenir and present it to grandma as a personalised birthday gift, or display it in your home office, or as a centrepiece on your dining table. The possibilities are endless!
