For the Queen’s Birthday

For the Queen’s Birthday

King Milo & King Woodycompleted corgiHappy Birthday to our Queen

June 2nd saw another busy and fun craft afternoon at East Street attended by local children and others on holiday, including visiting grandchildren from Singapore!  — in all, 14 children and 15 adults, producing a variety of crafts to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday. They made wonderful crowns adorned with crystals and jewels and as you can see from the photos they modelled them wearing sparkling gold and silver cloaks.

In keeping with the Queen theme they decorated paper Corgi dogs and the Queen’s handbag, all very inventive and well executed even by the youngest children – well done to them.

Another popular craft was making paper flowers out of paper baking cup cases and straws. And with the help of Heather a few children made their own silhouette portraits.

Thanks to our usual helpers – Heather, Sue and Pat plus Jo and Sheila too. And thanks also to all the children who came (along with their parents and grandparents) and made such wonderful creations.

Children: Wear those crowns to celebrate the Queen’s official birthday week-end 11th & 12th June.

And look out for our next children’s craft activity in August!
