LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

Easter ‘make’ a day – Day Seven: now I really need a lie down!

So, today was the Spot’s Birthday Party workshop at the theatre – 25 children aged 2-6 which is enough to strike terror into the stoutest of hearts.

Luckily my friend Emma has a small child magic about her and can control large swathes of them with just her voice and a selection of songs and games. In between we got them to handprint Spot, make bunting and party hats, decorate tin cans with sunflowers and plant seeds in them as well as decorate and eat a cupcake. We also painted their faces as lions, snakes or penguins and in true Spot tradition searched for his friends around the theatre for a ‘bingo’ game.

As always it was a noisy, happy, messy two hours.

I only have a couple of pictures to show for it, but if you are in the South East Essex area and want to see the show ‘Spot’s Birthday Party’ I’ve added the link at the bottom of the blog page.

My challenge week is officially over! Thanks for your encouragements.

I truly went for ‘making time to create’ this week. While it was harder some days than others and a real test of my resolve I am happy with the outcome.

It’s not a standard working week for me,though essentially all that means is that I didn’t go out to work and I didn’t have Guides – everything else stayed the same. Its good to know it’s possible to fit in creativity in any form every day.

Honestly though, once or twice a week would be enough!
