Today we decided it would be a wonderful day to visit Narnia…so we did!
Me and Pickle emptied out our wardrobe and moved it into the lounge. Inside we hung our dressing gowns as fur coats and made a dressing up/reading area. The Christmas tree made another appearance!
I made an Aslan mask. I got the template from The Magical World of Narnia by Brian Sibley and drew the face on. There are lots of brilliant activities in the book but they are mostly for older children
The Sparklist and Ron Burgundy let us borrow their Christmas tree for the day for our White Witch’s Kingdom
I got a fruit crate from Morrisons, painted it black and put cushions and blankets inside. I attached a lantern and filled it with battery powered fairy lights.
It made a nice bed for Moo-Cat who was our Aslan for the day
I dressed up as the White Witch
I made a lamp-post so we could find our way back to Spare Oom and War Drobe
We had lunch with Mr Tumnus
“And really it was a wonderful tea. There was a nice brown egg, lightly boiled, for each of them, and then sardines on toast, and then buttered toast, and then toast with honey, and then a sugar topped cake.”
Moo-Pa quickly sketched a portrait of an old Faun with a grey beard to put on the mantelpiece over the fire.
We re-spined some of our books with titles Mr Tumnus has in his little cave and added a little pile of his brown paper parcels.
After lunch we went to play in the snow and Moo-Ma made a miniature snowman
We then went inside to warm up. We coloured in some pictures of Mr Tumnus and Lucy before we all got a bit kippy and had a nap.
I made a wipe-able dinner mat of a map of Narnia and instead of Turkish Delight we ate rather too many Snowball chocolates (I had meant to save some for you Pickle, sorry!)
We made some fancy paper snowflakes
And we’re now off to watch the film and play before we have tea with Mr and Mrs Beaver. What a fab day!
