Comments Off on Easter Fun with Felltarn!

11104069_10152802909261700_433341945_n I think it’s time we got up to date with all the Felltarn fun that occurred over the Easter holidays! We hope the Easter Bunny brought you all lots of yummy treats – do you have anything left..? Some of you will still be enjoying the break, and others will be back at school already. But which of you came colouring and crafting with us at Westmorland Shopping Centre in Kendal? Wasn’t it FAB?!

What did you all create with us? Well, there were the cutest Easter Cards, Easter Baskets and Easter Bunting which you decorated with a wonderful combination of colourful feathers, buttons, ribbon and felt. The Bug Bunting was as popular as ever – I love how you all get so excited about spiders when it’s time to craft your own… Not so scary when they’re made out of card, pipecleaners and googly eyes are they… Ha ha! And what about the Felltarn Friends Wibbly Arms Puppets? Simply fabulous creations guys – I hope you remembered to write your name on the Friends Wall?

westmorland-craftingThere were so many of you there helping with the mega task of colouring in our giant wall mural, and when I say “you” I mean children, mums, dads, grandparents, friends, aunties, uncles and (dare I say it) teenagers! You all got involved and brought Claire’s drawings to life in a blast of colourful creativeness – just look at these pictures, doesn’t it look amazing? So amazing in fact that the lovely peeps at Westmorland Shopping Centre HQ have asked us to put the finished artwork up for display in the shop that was Living Home (on the top floor). Thank you everyone for helping – we are over the moon and totally inspired by what has been created :-)

For the first time at a Felltarn Friends craft event we put out some very clever 3D cardboard toys to play with. We weren’t sure if they’d be popular or robust enough, but the castle, aeroplane and car were great fun. You got stuck in, zooming around and putting them through their paces. The cardboard toys survived the experience brilliantly and we can absolutely declare they’ve passed the Felltarn test. They will be back to feature at our events in the future.

To help finish off the murals, we enlisted the help of pupils from Old Hutton Preschool and Primary School. Each class took it in turns to colour in until the whole 9 metres – you should’ve seen how much they love to colour, draw and add their little personal touches. Other primary schools are taking an interest in completing a Felltarn Mural and we would love to fill Kendal’s empty shop windows with bold, bright, beautiful displays showing off the creative handiwork of local school children. Get in touch and lets make some plans!
