The smile of a child who’s stayed inside the lines (Picture: The Range)

You’ve made the Christmas cookies, and you’ve written the letters to Santa. Now the kids are excited and hopped up on sugar, and there’s nowhere to expend that energy (at least until they get their new bikes on the big day).

To keep your little elves busy is no small feat, but this DIY Christmas grotto from The Range should go some way to doing the trick.

The cardboard house is big enough for a kid to fit in, and had a working door and roof.

It’s also fully customisable, so they can colour it in and give it their own design with pens and pencils.

On the website, The Range say of the £9.99 Build Your Own Grotto, it’s ‘great for any budding artist looking to decorate their own wintry wonderland

‘Featuring a fully operable door, window, and charming chimney, this ready-to-decorate playhouse is sure to provide hours of endless entertainment this festive season.’

Parents have gone mad for the product, and it’s now sold out online. So, you’ll have to head to your nearest store if you want to get your hands on one.

When the homeware store posted a picture of the grotto on their Instagram, it racked up hundreds of likes from folks wanting to buy it.

Many people were tagging family and friends in the post, likely with the hope that they’ll find the treat in their stocking or Christmas eve box.

The grotto is three-foot tall, and even though it’s cardboard, it can be brought out for years to come as long as it’s stored correctly.

That is as long as you don’t have a naughty dog like Porridge, intent on bringing your Christmas decorations to the ground.
