We've created some lovely activities for all the family to enjoy and craft items to make with Mums in mind and we think they will love the crafty gifts made to take home.
For all to enjoy and participate in why not try your hand at firelighting, whittle a stick for marshmallow toasting, saw a disc to create a woodland necklace for your mummy or Granny, you can even make one for yourself too! Make a spring bouquet tied together with ribbon, create a lavender bag and not forgetting a sweet treat, we'll be making some yummy peppermint cremes..mmm! ...
