You can buy MASSAGE CRAYONS to trick your children into rubbing your back whilst EastEnders is on

Mwhahaha

Normally when your little ones play, it involves paint-splattered floors, felt tip scribblings on your expensive table and a living room which looks like a toy box has exploded.

During the summer holidays, we actually have to a tidy every fifteen minutes, just to see the carpet.

However, the geniuses at Groupon have introduced massage crayons meaning the only thing that will look a mess is... err YOU.

Picture the scene. It's a Friday night and you really, really REALLY want a dead-fancy masseuse to rub the knots out of your back. Alas, it's £70 an hour, EastEnders is on the telly and you're craving a Chinese. Something's got to give...

Now, your children can draw on you with special 'massage crayons' that promise to feel really good on the skin. All they have to do is create wonderful pieces of art... on your back. Though they may feel disheartened when after you don't pop their picture on the fridge.

SO. Massage crayons. Brilliant or a little bit weird? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
