On a totally unrelated theme, I was so proud of my little Kingfishers (30 five and six year olds) and all the hard work they put in to producing a Summer Garden for Frensham Fayre. They cut, painted, glued, and wove everything themselves and their hard work was rewarded with first prize. Yeah!
I had found an old basket in a local bric-a-brac shop for £3.00. It was full of holes but these were just right to poke the heads of egg carton bees and ladybirds through. The rest of the basket was filled with paper roses, hyacinths and paper tulips (instructions easily found on Pinterest). Some children wove lollypop sticks together to make butterflies and these were hung on wire stakes. The overall effect was bright and beautiful, a summer garden in a basket!
