Coco's Unicorn Party!

 This is a fabulous game Mum created in which Coco came out with little changes in her outfit - bling! bling! - and the child who noticed the change was given a party popper. At the end, they all pulled their party poppers and cried 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY COCO!' Every parent present asked if Mum  was available to do parties for   other children too!!!!!!!! Thanks Mum!





Seren did a fabulous unicorn horn activity, which the kids LOVED. Here is cousin David perfecting the last touches of Coco's unicorn outfut!

*Reading all the books Coco received for her birthday (including 'Black Dog' from Great Auntie Nancie, which Coco read by herself, 'Stories for 7 Year Olds', which Uncle Sam, Auntie Becca and Cousin Zachary (and Twinkle Martha??!!!) gave Eowyn for HER 7th, and which Eowyn gave Coco, and one of my favourites from childhood, Enid Blyton's Magic Faraway Tree collection - was delightful seeing my girls meet the folk of the faraway tree for the first time! Big wide excited eyes!!!)
*Seven Times One, by Jean Ingelow
"... And show me your next, with the young ones in it-
I will not steal them away;
I am old, you may trust me, linnet, linnet!
I am seven times one to-day."
