To make matters worse I was thrilled when I was informed that Charlie's playgroup were this year opting not to do the Easter parade and were doing an egg hunt instead. Perfect. One less hat to make. Not quite. Charlie decided that even though he didn't need one if Faye was making a hat then so was he.
I'm not an arts and craft person. I hate glue and glitter and would quite happily pay someone to take over the challenge on my behalf but with no offers in sight it was a trip to the local pound shop where I returned with bags of coloured paper, bunnies, chicks, eggs and general bits of tat.
The kids had a great time. We all sat at the table and with glue sticks and paper galore it wasn't long before we had two hats finished and even if I do say so myself we've made a good job of it.
