Robbie Burns Night
Let me preface this by saying we are on day 7 of the girls being sick. The morning is a blur of whining, runny noses and Mama mumbling to herself like a crazy woman. So I decided to fill the afternoon with an activity that would make the time fly. My husband is Scottish/Irish and is very proud of his heritage so I thought why not surprise him with a Robbie Burns night (3 days late...oops!)
We went to http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/
There were all sorts of ideas and printables for the occasion. It is a great resource for coloring pages and craft ideas. Their specialty seems to be holidays. Making the Scottish Flag banner was fun and Lulu got to glue (her favorite activity.) We printed out some Robbie Burns poems and a blessing. We made tartan sashes out of paper and crayons. We borrowed some excellent traditional Scottish music from our friend. Lulu also colored the map and flag of Scotland. Needless to say the afternoon flew by!
