I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer!

Now, I’ve been very busy thinking up some fun and easy activities that you can do either on your own or with friends.

JarsJazzy jar

You will need:

  • Clean glass jars

  • Acrylic or special glass paints

  • Paintbrushes

  • Sequins, beads or small craft items

  • PVA glue

Here’s what to do

Start by washing and drying some old glass jars.

Use acrylic or special glass paints to paint straight onto the sides of the jars. Then add more decoration by gluing on sequins or any other craft items you really like. When dry, you can fill the jars with anything you like – I chose paintbrushes and colouring pencils.


Tutti Frutti SmoothieTutti fruity smoothie

You will need:

  • Two bananas
  • Eight strawberries

  • Teaspoon of honey

  • Small carton of plain yoghurt

  • Milk

  • A whole pineapple

  • Straws and coloured paper


Make it!

In a mixing bowl mash together the bananas and strawberries and mix in the honey – you won’t need much as the fruit will add its own sweetness. Put the mashed mixture into a tall jug and add the yoghurt. Mix together well. Add some milk gradually until your smoothie is the right thickness – not too thick and not runny. Chill the smoothie in the fridge.

Scoop out the inside of a pineapple (save the fruit to make a pudding) and then pour your smoothie into the pineapple shell.

Decorate some straws with palm leaves cut from green paper and pop them in the pineapple. Now it’s time for you and your friends to sip away. Mmm, delicious!



Sqwark! Bridget here! I used to be a battery hen and had few feathers and sore feet when I was first rescued. Now though I'm a seriously cool chick. My friends say I can be a bit noisy but you'll get used to me! I will go crazy for videos, activities and announcements! Just call me foghorn!
