SD Say it with Flowers & Crafting an Answer

1st February – Say it with Flowers & Crafting an Answer

This week, Caitlin and the children made paper flowers, complete with floral spray, to send messages to the residents … and the adults were thrilled to receive them.

When the residents received them, they were delighted.

“Oh, the flowers!!! Big smiles and everyone enjoyed reading the cards.” Lee


Crafting an answer

Each week, we sent an Activity Pack, along with the children’s work, to the group at Broadlands.

This week, we also sent in Caitlin’s Craft Kit, a step-by-step guide on making beautiful little envelopes—out of doilies.

“Oh, the excitement … was fabulous to see.” Lee

Posing the questions

The adults had lots of questions for the children to research when they visited the Suffolk Archives.

They were written on tiny pieces of card, wrapped in the beautiful doily envelopes, and sent back for the children to open next week.

Questions for Archives

Quote from a pupil, on receiving a doily envelope:
“It’s just so beautiful—I don’t want to open it, I might spoil it.”
