I have added these beautiful party table bags from the wonderful Happy Sunday Studio this year ( choosing my favourite liberty prints of course)! we all put some names into a hat and have picked out one person each to fill a bag for . I am hoping it gives the kids some practise in how to really put some thought into what might make someone smile!
We are going to hand write a joke or riddle each and me and the kids are going to attempt to make some cute felt party hats and crowns to be reused at the table each year. A few ideas for little presents might be stickers and tattoos ( Meri Meri do great ones), a little car (Candylab are my favourites), make up (love Nailmatic) , Maileg mice, stationary (check out Penco for the adults), a pretty face mask, playing cards/ a card game ( we love Djeco ones), jewellery and hair accessories ( so pretty at Rockahula), animal figures ( Schleich, Ostheimer, Holztiger) , a vintage toy from ebay (care bear?), a teether ( Oli and carol), felt fairy ( Conscious craft), mini doll (Alice In Scandiland Shop), little doll accessories ( Scandiborn) , Play food, tools etc. Plus maybe some crayons and some colouring sheets ( have a look at Squidgearoo) to keep the kids busy while the food is cooking!
In the middle of lockdown and with all kids at home the only way I can keep baby B asleep is by having him permanently attached to me! So on the very rare occasion I got to put him down with his new cosy linen Little Beacon moon blanket I couldn’t resist but take some photos of him!
It seems strange to be thinking about celebrating Easter at this confusing time, but when your homeschool lesson of the day is how to take a picture of a baby looking cute in a bunny hat then I can’t not post it! I added a little gift guide in after because even if making Easter baskets is the last thing on your mind I always like to look at pictures of cute things…
