On their website Aldi described the range as: “A great way to get them working together, this is a creative activity that'll keep them busy for hours.

“Made from thick card that they can assemble by themselves, the finished product can be customised with colour and paint to really get their creative juices going.”

As with many of the brilliant items Aldi have bought out during lockdown, the cut-out colouring items are currently sold out online, however you still have a chance of hunting them down in stores.
