Grow your own Venus flytrap.
Board game (labyrinth, pandemic etc)

Thanks for your suggestions Scarlett. I’ve just had a look at the Formcards and I think they’d be perfect for my DH. He loves stuff like that.

OP I’ve just seen a suggestion of texting gloves on another thread. How about those?

Thanks for the idea.
Foam cards look fab I've never seen them before! Definitely on his list now thanks x
