I Spy - Jubilee Joy

I've been looking around for some Jubilee inspiration. Thinking about what I'd like to keep as a souvenir of this special occasion. Trying to find those perfect Jubilee mementos and looking to find ways in which the children can find even more ways to get excited about it.
Here's a few of my favourite things I've discovered along the way.

Battersea Pumphouse Gallery (above)  is taking a look at the notion behind souvenirs and is hosting a month long exhibition. A special production line led by Josh Knowles will allow you to customise your own memorabilia.

There are some great free printables for children to colour, puzzles to do and stamps to design over at activity village. We've already been printing off a a few and using some to create collages from scraps of paper, buttons and fabric scraps in red white and blues.

When it comes to jubilee memorabilia there was only one stop on my mind, Liberty! Pieces are selling fast and I've missed out on a few I would have loved, but can't resist the biscuit barrel in particular because I know it will be kept and used well beyond my becoming a grandma!

If crafting is your cup of Sunday afternoon tea then why not create your very own cross stitch Jubilee piece.

Bustle and Sew are offering are free tutorial for a union jack applique

It doesn't get much yummier than this at the biscuiteers!
With the right biscuit cutters and coloured icing this could be a great after school this week with the children.

It'll be an exciting week of preparations, picnics and parties planned across the land!
I hope you all enjoy getting a little creative with the souvenirs and decorations, edible or otherwise.
