That’s actually a whole lot more than I thought I’d done! I think it feels like I haven’t done much because I haven’t been blogging much, but perhaps that’s not the case…

More chicks and bunnies

Standard

I’ve just got back from a very fun but quite chaotic afternoon. We met in a small cricket pavilion which comfortably holds 30 people. I have no idea how many people were actually there, but it felt like a lot more than 30! Despite the chaos (and lack of scissors – why did I think that 1 pair would be enough?!) I think most people had a great afternoon. Alongside the Easter egg hunt, games on the field, Easter nest making and colouring in, I was kept busy all afternoon making pompom animals. This is the calm before the storm…

And here are some of the ones made this afternoon. I didn’t get to take a picture of all of them, but we had some really great creations!
