Sleepover fun with SO DIY

Do your kids have sleepovers yet? L seems to be in the minority amongst his friends in that he does. L and his best friend from nursery have had several sIeepovers and they love it. Even If they are little terrors.

The Centre of Excellence offers a huge range of home learning courses but I was mostly interested in their crafting courses. I do love to craft and so it is naturally a topic that interests me.
