Due to heavy colds we didn’t go swimming this weekend so on site activity was called for.
A great liking for art already established we decided to try the children at producing some seasonal greeting cards.
Using some simple designs taken from the internet we set the children to work with felt tips, latex glue and tinsel, with some great results.
This proved such a popular activity that we now hope to establish a range of greeting cards for purchase in our, soon to open, on-line shop.
Because we are only caring for 3 children at the moment and the activity is on a totally voluntary basis, the volume of original handmade selections will be limited but we also hope to soon be in a position to produce quality prints of the originals.
These will be on sale at bargain prices. They may well be too late for use this year, with Christmas so near and postal services under the usual seasonal strain. But hey!…why not think ahead and have that extra special card to send next year?
In the same vein we hope to use prints of the best of the childrens general artwork to extend the range with cards for all occassions.
The general art work will also be available as A4 poster prints.
For connoisseurs amongst you, although none of the designs are Picasso or Renoir standard, in my eyes, they are none the less beautiful because each one is done with heart and soul by children who are deserving of the nurturing care that you can help us provide.
With a view to producing an ongoing line of cards we would like to welcome you to a preview of the first offerings in the ‘Because You Care’ range.
