We used fabric crayons and felts to create our own design on a pillowcase.
Once the designing was finished we ironed the finished product to set the crayon. What a fab creation!
Another fab creation from Portia!

Claire said, “Yay! That’s great! Thanks Sarah, Zach loves his pillowcase! See you next time.”

Jody said, “This is great Portia has even learnt how to iron! She really loved this activity and is so proud to cuddle into her pillow on her day bed!”
