Abbie wasn’t feeling very well today so we went for a walk in the sunshine to look at the spring flowers and blossom


To cheer her up I suggested that we try taking some photos using my very retro polaroid camera. Ian hates this camera saying that I should bin it but I love that it reminds me of Bopa (my late Grandad.)


Too much of our life is ‘virtual’ now and taking a picture and instantly having a real photo in your hands is a refreshing change.


The film was probably out of date so we achieved an instagram finish without any editing :)


Back home Abbie decided to paint a picture of the blossom complete with woodland animals and birds


She used a cotton bud to paint the blossom on the tree and finger prints to make the birds, hedgehog and squirrel, as recommended by Center Parcs expert crafter – Emma Hull – see link for more tips



My favourite part of her picture was the baby birds in the nest waiting for some tasty treats from Mummy bird :)


This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots 100 March challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit Woburn forest’.
