Easter Crafts

More rain, but some lovely crafts brightened up our day.  It was great to share some crafty company with kids, thanks to Kate and her two boys, and Cynthia and her two girls.  Surprise walnuts with ladybirds hidden inside and fabulous felted eggs were the order of the day.  Kate’s eldest boy was so helpful and a natural born felter! It is wonderful to see young children engage with what we do in their own special ways, and certainly helps to weave a little sunshine into everyone’s hearts.

If you want to see more of our crafts, or pick up a little special something before the holidays, drop in and see Wendy in the front office where a selection of our crafts are on sale and display.  Beautiful painted silk cards, nests of felted eggs, hand stitched chicks, surprise walnuts and wee felt mice are all available, but they won’t last long!

Happy holidays to all our crafty friends, look out for updates next term for another fun filled crafternoon (or morning) …

Marvellous Mice

Don’t be fooled!  A day pouring with rain is a wonderful day to brave the weather and join us in a cosy corner of the school craft room to enjoy some creativity in great company.  A huge thankyou to Kate for braving the weather even though she only had an hour to spare, and whipping up a mouse or two for preschool and kindy, and the amazing Amelia whose stitches look like they could have been made by the mice themselves.
