A man has revealed how he and his two children spent 'hours' indulging in the extremely satisfying activity of bursting the bubbles in a sheet of bubblewrap that had been used as protective covering on his daughter's new bike.
Moys Kenwood, 56, and his wife planted the bicycle, along with other toys, around a small Christmas tree, and announced to their children, 2 and 4, that Father Christmas had left them something.
The youngsters ripped open the presents with glee.
Wrapped around the frame and various tubes of his daughter's gleaming blue bike, were yards of bubblewrap, and it was to here the kids' attentions were eventually drawn.
The calming, soothing pleasure and therapeutic quality of digging their thumbnails into the tiny, circular pockets of air, accompanied by the slight but, nevertheless, audible popping sound of the air escaping, delighted the trio, as Mammy looked on in wonder.
"Small things amuse small minds, which is what my husband has."
