Lulu's Easter Fun 2015

It's almost Easter so that means there will be loads of bunny rabbits, daffodils and maybe even chocolate about very, very soon.
It also means we can get outside and take part in lots of fun activities such as dying and rolling eggs. Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh is a really popular place to roll your egg. But not as popular as a big White House in America where the President of the USA shows 35,000 people what to do!!


Look into my eyes, and you will be hypnotised into having a brilliant Easter!

I've got loads of ideas for fun Easter activities and places to go. Keep reading to find out more and to learn what on earth my BFF Euan is up to with this red wool and cardboard!

How to Hanami

People in Japan must love Blossom as much as my BFF Lulu does.  They have a special word that means looking at blossom- Hanami.  It just means "flower viewing" but mainly they mean looking at cherry blossom.  They even have huge parties to celebrate the blossom and get up really, really early to lay out their picnic rugs to keep the best places even though the parties don't start until after work! Special news bulletins on tv and radio tell them when to get ready!
I've already spotted the first blossoms in gardens here.  If you'd like to hanami too I can tell you which trees make the best blossom, where to go to see some pretty blossom displays and I'll share a fun blossom craft project for you to make.



These Japanese cherry blossoms remind me of snow!

It's almost time to show our Mummies how wonderful they are. This Sunday is Mother's Day in the UK. I've come up with some plant and garden related fun activities you can do with your Mummy, some places to take her and treats you can make to show her just how special she is.
Maybe a hug is all your 
mummy needs to feel special
