Easter lockdown -Living Arrows 15/52

April 13, 2020

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. Kahlil Gibran. We have been trying to make Easter lockdown seem normal and fun for the kids this week. I think they’re dealing with all of this far better than us grown-ups. I was fortunate enough to buy in some Easter eggs and arts & crafts a few weeks ago. I’m glad I did so they didn’t go without and did all the seasonal things that they love to do.

A lot of the children’s activity requests have been around baking. Daisy spent a whole morning being cook school teacher and taking her siblings into her cook school room separately to make Donna’s Easter nest cakes.

One of the things to do on the school holiday ideas list was traditional boiled egg crafts. Fin enlisted my help with a glue gun to produce an egg replica of the Gherkin for his geography homework.

We’ve spent another week checking up on the progress of the lambs on our daily walk. We have enjoying seeing them grow and become braver, although Daisy frets every time they lose their mums for a minute or so.

Finlay and Daisy have continued to get on well and rebuild their sibling relationship. They may have bonded over playing a screen game but this has now extended to having more conversations and playing in the garden together.

Lastly I had to include my two little Easter bunnies on here. I snapped this at bedtime on Saturday when they were excited for Sunday and the bunny arriving.

I hope that you’ve all been able to enjoy some moments of Easter lockdown. If you’re a key worker working hard over the weekend, we as a family say thank you.

  3. Looks like you have had lots of fun over the Easter break. I am so impressed with the amount of things you get up to. We are really struggling to balance two jobs and home school let alone fun stuff. Love the last photo so cute with the bunny tail and the ears x

    I love the hard boiler egg activity!
    Easter seems to have crept up on me this year, I was not prepared at all! Thankfully I managed to get hold of some eggs so my 3 still had one.

    It must be lovely to see the lambs grow too!
