Easter bonnet 2010

Playgroup are holding an Easter bonnet parade this week. I have a big note attached to the fridge to remind me of this very important event.

Yesterday while Master Crayons was napping, Miss Crayons and I decided to start preparing the bonnet. Out came the glue, ribbons (pink) and bits of sweet wrappers.

We are rather proud of our efforts. I even managed to find a use for the doilies I brought ages ago. See, there is a place for doilies in the world.

Portrait – four year old style

I am in the process of helping organise a Mother’s day fundraiser event for Playgroup.

We have lots of exciting things planned: family photography portraits by Tempest lady, afternoon fashion shows with Reba an independent fashion boutique and Edinburgh Woollen Mill (talk about catering for all tastes!), and an indulgence evening with shopping and gifts and jewellery.

The most exciting part of the day has got to be a children’s colouring in competition in the morning period.

I have designed and printed out some ‘My Mummy’ templates which the kiddies can colour in. We are going to have age categories and prizes for each category.

I asked ‘Miss Crayons’ to do me a dummy draft so that we can hang some “here’s what we did earlier” up on the day. This is her first attempt.

Please note the lollipop and add-on heels. Frankly, it’s like looking into a mirror.

Crowland Community Playgroup

Playgroup recently had a grand opening of their Lottery and Surestart funded outside area.

There is now a covered shaded play space, with planting, seating and a secret garden which the children can now enjoy regardless of the weather.

Local businesses and representatives were invited along with press from the two counties to the opening. There was a great turn out and the very lovely Kev and Abby from HeartFM were on hand to cut the ribbon.

The article from the ET can be found here.

Preparations. Great idea to recreate the new logo on the giant outdoor chalkboard. Wait a minute, is that a typo?


What typo?
