My friend John made me laugh. He said ‘Won’t someone think of the burglars? How are they supposed to burgle with everyone staying home all the time?!’ Perhaps they need their own coronavirus stimulus package…
The eight-year-old and I are still enjoying doing arts and crafts. Yesterday I made her a newspaper skirt and a top out of a bin liner, and she looked surprisingly stylish!
Today we tried to make a jigsaw. First we needed a base, so I used the box for Lily’s giant chocolate Easter egg.
Then we needed a picture for the jigsaw, so used a pretty flower postcard and stuck two sheets of card on the back.
Lily cut out the pieces, but found cutting through three sheets of card very difficult.
Then she started trying to do the jigsaw puzzle:
But it was very difficult because the edges weren’t clearly delineated, and this is as far as she got.
She wasn’t happy!
But the process was fun. This afternoon we’re going to do a ‘spa day’, with face masks and cucumber slices. Pictures to follow!
