It’s a lovely day here, spirits are high, and the Easter Bunny (aka my DH) has arrived! 90 village children are booked throughout the day to receive their egg. There are still lovely things happening - hope you all have a good holiday weekend!

How wonderful! Have a lovely day katek and kudos to your husband for taking on the role of Easter bunny.

How wonderful of your DH to do that katek, I hope you all have a lovely day!

Thank you blossoming! It’s been interesting working the distancing/hygiene measures in but think we’ve done it. Children have booked time slots, we have an in and out, sanitiser/masks/gloves available on entry for adults and 2 mtr distancing marked with bunches of fake daffodils!

I admire your DH being the Easter bunny to all those excited children Katek. They need things like this after the awful year we’ve had. . ....and who doesn’t believe in the Easter Bunny ? 🐇 😀
I hope the sun shines for you all and you have a great day.

I have made these chicks and rabbits as Easter decorations for people to help themselves - no charge! I live in a quiet area with most children walking with their parents so I hope there will be no messing about!

My notice says they are for the local children who have been badly affected by the lockdowns.

Well done to you all.

Puzzler61 Fri 02-Apr-21 13:17:13

You are a wonderful, kind and thoughtful lady to make the chicks and rabbits Teacheranne
I’m sure they will find themselves in the care of many “little people” who live near you. A Happy Easter to you 🐣

It’s been a wonderful, happy day! Can’t share pics with children but here’s a couple of Rabbit and his ladybird helpers!

How lovely Katek and Teacheranne! 💐🌞❤️

How lovely for the children. I’m sure they would appreciate the gesture.

Teacheranne Sun 04-Apr-21 01:06:56

Well, almost all the little chicks and rabbits have been adopted, I might leave the tray out again tomorrow to see if the last four find a home.

I was totally astonished today that two people insisted on posting some money through my letterbox for them. Both times I heard the rustling and went out to say that I don’t want paying but would donate the money to charity - total of £10! I was touched at their generosity.

Puzzler61 Sun 04-Apr-21 14:07:33

Your generosity has prompted generosity in others Teacheranne. 😊
I hope the last 4 have been snapped up today. 🐰 🐥

Katek Sun 04-Apr-21 15:11:13

We had same thing happening teacheranne - ours was a free event and people kept asking “how much is it?”. Had to leave a basket out in the end as lots of donations were being handed in. This will also go to charity. I think people are so glad to see/be involved with something approaching normal thar they just want to show their appreciation in some way.

Blossoming Sun 04-Apr-21 15:31:40

Isn’t it lovely to see the charitable responses from people too?
