Magic Faraway Tree

Standard

The upcoming anniversary of Enid Blyton’s birth prompted me to start preparing a display for the occasion – particularly as I thought the Faraway Tree also fitted so well with this year’s Book Week theme of Escape to Everywhere. Β The tree is pretty much ready as well as some Enid Blyton bunting, some vintage and new books, a vintage Famous Five card game (as it’s also the 70th anniversary of the FF) and even some Enid Blyton earrings πŸ™‚ as well as my ‘dress up’. Pretty excited that after arriving at my new school I discover that this will be the theme for a very special Year 2 morning tea this term! Huzzah!!!!

Would love to hear what other people might be doing as well!
