The things us crafters have to make!!

Hi all

My youngest son has gone on a school trip to visit the Anderson Air raid shelters in Stockport today, they had to take a home made gas mask box and dress as if they were evacuee's from WWII!

I think Yaseen quite liked having his hair in a side parting and really has been excited to visit the shelters - more so than a visit to a theme park. He just loves learning about history and spent hours researching on the Internet hehe!

He was very particular in telling me I had to make the box with a twine handle, warning label and he wanted to go that bit extra with a ration book, identity tag and ID card! Thank goodness for distress inks LOL!

Here is is all dressed for the part

Pretending to cry at being evacuated LOL! He is a great actor!!
