Get creating quick though as there really is much time before the closing date of 20th October which is also probably the week before half term! My middle child is starting school but will be part time for the first 3 weeks so I’m not sure I’ll have any creative time available (but might be super fit from walking back and forth to school 3 times a day!)
Good luck – I’d love to hear about what your going to make!
