Easter Preparations

Easter is less than 2 weeks away ...
 I remember as a little girl getting a new pretty cotton dress and new sandals for Easter
As I remember it ... Easter Sunday was always sunny ... warm enough to walk to church in a cotton dress and crisp white ankle socks 
Maybe it's because Easter is early this year ... but it sure is cold here still!

Tonight at Thursday Club my group are looking forward to making Easter cards ... Being as they are all either physically or mentally challenged (or both) ... I always need to come up with something that looks not too babyish (they are all 18 - 60+) but that they can just assemble ... It can take a few days I can tell you!

So we are going to make popup cards something like this...



All the cards and inserts are cut ready to assemble ... the embellishments done .. some bought some printed and cut and of course lots of bows hand tied ...


And what is Easter without an Easter bag?


... and more embellishments - I think I could tie bows in my sleep!


And I couldn't forget these guys ...


... But what good would a bag be without treats to put in?


Yes the important ingredients!
I have catered for just over 20 ... but I always carry extras just in case ... 

See you when I've recovered ...

Keep safe

I hope your group really appreciate how much you do for them. I expect they are really appreciative. You have done such a lot of preparation, it is time consuming, but the more you prepare, the more you can relax on the night.
Hope you all have amazing fun!
