Wish us luck!

In my capacity as lunatic-who-cannot-say-no, I'm helping to organise a Mini Olympics for the three smallest classes at school tomorrow. We have lots of drinks and snacks, ideas for It's a Knockout-style races, medals for the winners, certificates for everyone who is taking part, and FLAGS!


I started off trying to paint these but they looked absolutely dreadful. Really shockingly bad. So I decided to crack out the bondaweb and applique some instead, as you do.




We have thirty five small competitors on the list so far ...

  1. Good luck!
    The flags are very impressive. Going that extra mile is a very good quality to have in my book.
    Don't forget your sunblock...

  3. Thankfully there shouldn't be too much political grandstanding or boycotts amongst the under-10s.

    Did I mention, I always cry at medal ceremonies? Have fun!

  8. What fun! I'm kind of jealous. My kids (now 7 and 9) still remember our Kids' Olympics from four years ago. The flags are fantastic. Can't wait to see pictures of the event!

  21. Fabulous flag... but please don't tell me you made them for every little competitor? It makes stitching plastic bags seem quite sane!

  25. Hello Kitty - How lovely to hear from you! We all had great fun (though I'm quite relieved there will be a big gap until the next one!)

    Hello Vanessa - While I'd love to take full credit there were five of us sorting it out, plus a couple of other mums helping too. It was a lovely afternoon!

    Hello Liz - An Olympic flame would have been marvellous. Mayeb if we arrange one for the older children one day!
