This evening, children could take part in an amazing Easter Craft event. Children could make Easter cards, flowers, cakes, draw pictures and even design feather creatures!
“My favourite was designing an egg – it looked sparkly” (By Blake R Yr3)
“I really liked putting glitter on my hands!” (Karen H Yr6)
“I loved having a feather fight” (Chaya A Yr5)
Halfway through, the children all ate pizza, hot dogs and drinks. This was one of the best parts of the evening! The hall was a bit messy – just like the home of Stig of the Dump! Thank you to all of the parents who helped at the event too, it was a great success.
“We liked making the eggs covered in little feathers because they looked like fluffy monsters” (Alex B Kraken).
