This Easter the weather will be mostly sunny, cloudy, wet, windy, dull and snowy with a chance of thunder of lightning. Yes, I live in England and true to form the weather has been anything BUT predictable. The day starts off sunny, so suncream and hats are donned and by 1pm it is throwing it down with rain. Rather than be caught out by being stuck indoors with “I’m Boooored!” I decided to stock up on the craft supplies – but before I got there, the lovelies from Poundland sent me a care package to keep me going.
It arrived the day before our Easter bonnet was due at school (which I had forgotten about!). Talk about saving the day!
- Poundland saved the day (and my playground blushes).
As every other day has been black and cold here, the Poundland haul has been a lifesaver!
- As well as the Easter Bonnet which as you can see has now made it back here to live, we have enjoyed making all sorts of things! The Easter teddy pictured here Kieran kindly gave to his baby brother so he wouldn’t feel left out!
- “It’s you Mummy” – Um thanks Kieran..
There were also some yummy Malteser Easter chocs in the package but I rescued them, after all too much chocolate isn’t good for a child you know (dum de dum).
There are still the puppet figures to make and of course we will have to make up a show to use them, but as the sun is shining today (for now) – we’ll save that for another time.
Have a look at the Poundland website for details of their upcoming Easter promotions and see the free downloads for how to make your own Easter puppet & hat! Have fun!
