Easter gifts from nursery…

I love it when Little Miss brings home something she’s made at nursery. It feels like one of the small perks of being a working mum and it doesn’t really matter what it is. The other week she presented me with what was essentially just a splodge of purple on a piece of card – there was as much paintย on her leggings as there was on the ‘painting’ – but it still took pride of place in our little ‘mini gallery’ in the kitchen, AKA the side of the fridge.

Anyway, this time of year is especially fruitful in terms of nursery keepsakes. Last year’s Easter offering was the card pictured below, affectionately titled ‘Fire Bunny’ by me and the hubby! Hopefully you can see why. We loved it but it still makes us giggle.

And this week has seen a new masterpiece created, which we’ve dubbed ‘Disco Chick’ due to the volume of glitter involved. Again, hopefully you can see why. He’s currently taken up residence on my bedside table.

  1. I love you this as it reminds me of all of the box modelling items my girl would bring him from nursery. I still have a jewellery box made out of two Flora tubs, some sticky tape and a glittery bow on my dresser! Brilliant x

    Lol love the names for them, they make perfect sense! Very lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  3. They’re fab! I’m always a little afraid when glittery masterpieces come home – it gets everywhere! #minicreations

  4. I love the things they bring home from preschool/nursery, it’s great to see what they have been up to.

    • I know, it’s great. We’ve had a bumper week, with another masterpiece coming home today – a crepe paper decorated Easter egg pic!

    My baby starts in 3 weeks. not looking forward to it but I am looking forward to her bringing master pieces home.

    • It is hard when they first start – probably harder for us than them! But you’ll both soon get used to it and before you know it you have a toddler who runs in like they own the place! And those first little creations are so special.

  6. So cute! Its nice that you know what keeping them busy there! Mine is always bringing nice artworks too from pre-school =) #minicreations

    • Thanks and yes it’s always nice to see what they’ve been up to. Little Miss recently moved up into the next age group so we’ve been getting lots more mini masterpieces lately!
