We had fun on Saturday morning and the most popular activity was making a windchime.   

Maybe the warm Spring sunshine had something to do with the keen enthusiasm with which we were all busily painting and colouring butterflies, ladybirds, animals and the like and then stringing the chimes together so that a puff of wind would cause their melodious chiming!  Children as young as 6 years and adults up to age 70 were loving the satisfaction of inventing stripes, circles and abstract markings to decorate their garden chimes.   We were so engrossed in the activity that for a while there was a relatively quiet spell due to the enjoyment of concentrating on the task.   

People of all ages also had fun decorating cards, colouring and creating pretty designs on drawings.  We found that using watercolour painting pens was particularly satisfying, as well as using paints and crayons.  We had a good laugh together and exchanged cheerful banter about numerous topics, as well as admiring each other’s handiwork. 

During a discussion about what we would be doing for the next Create and Craft on Saturday June 17th (Jewels, 10.30am-12.30pm) we decided it would be nice to try our hand at glass painting to make tea light holders, and possibly do some quilling and rock painting.   One additional idea looking ahead to June/July is doing scratch art, which is a fun, all-age activity.
