On Thursday, we went to a Papercraft event at a local cafe. Grace took great delight in making a card for Luke covered in loose glitter (which he hates to the extent that whenever we do crafts with glitter we have to seal them within contact paper before displaying them!), and both girls enjoyed cutting, sticking and generally making a mess!

On Sunday we went to the Fairy Festival in Burley. We did enjoy it, but it felt like we were paying to go and look at a lot of stalls! The activities were not as lengthy or as entertaining as we had been led to believe, although the girls both adored the ride-on ponies and Grace was particularly taken with the Hula-Hooper.
