My 5 year old’s Rainbows group is amazing. Those women that organise it think of everything. We get a couple of letters per week inviting Violet to one event or another.
This week’s event is the burying of a Time Capsule in the local church garden after Church Parade (which we have never managed to make it to yet but that’s another story).
Our brief is to find something that is no bigger than Vi’s fist. The item has to be something that reminds her of her childhood, a happy memory or a holiday that she has been on. A memory?? SHe’s only 5!
Anything that she associates with her childhood, she still plays with – in fact she nearly had meltdown at the thought that Pink Elephant might get buried. Its a real worry that days after the Capsule has been buried she might want the item back.
So what are we burying? Well, Mummy Pig it looks like your time is nigh. (To be honest, we’ve got 3 of them and Vi has always said Mummy Pig is really boring but who’s telling?) Let’s hope she’s not claustrophobic!
