I have been saving all the cardboard boxes to cover the veg patch for the winter (we do no dig gardening) as well as any art project, lucky really, as it was decided shields was one thing she wanted to make, hubby cut out all the shields and I made dragons out of paper plates.
The cake had to be Toothless, according to L I did a really good job, huge sigh of relief, he wasn't easy to make! Please excuse the slight blurred image, I didn't realise till I uploaded the photos there was a small fingerprint on the lens!
So on party day we also had some homemade gingerbread eggs, for the children to decorate, a couple of dragon themed word searches, dragons to colour in
shields to paint. It was fair bit of prep beforehand but so worth it all the children had a lovely time.
We also had a trip to Marwell Zoo, as L really wanted to especially see the red pandas. As well as the giraffes.
You don't want to know how excited L got when she spotted her first real red panda, even if they were very well hidden!
Then one of them got up and decided to go for a walk, so we really got to see them, they are beautiful creatures and I can see why L loves them so much.
