For Father’s Day this weekend, many dads up and down the country will be treated to a lie in, followed by breakfast in bed if they are especially lucky!As the long school holidays are only a short month away, these fathers will no doubt soon be returning the favour and spoiling their children with various activities and day trips.
The teddy bears’ picnic is something of an institution in this country. Not only is it a fun way to pass the time – with a catchy song to boot – but it’s also a relatively inexpensive method of entertaining the kids for a couple of hours. Little ones can bring along their existing soft toy collection, so all that’s needed is some yummy food to snack on… and preferably a bit of sunshine if possible!
Of course the actual picnic itself is fairly short lived, but if you want to recreate the magic for your child once they are back home again, there are lots of ways to do so. A vibrant chequered rug on their bedroom floor can serve as a cosy picnic blanket, while a plastic tea set will make a great addition to your little one’s toy collection.
When it comes to their bedroom window, there are plenty of options to choose from, so Kirsty Martin from the Web-Blinds online team has picked out a selection of fabrics from the range that she thinks your kids will particularly love:
“Our Perfect Partners blind is an adorable option for any child’s room. The fabric features cute teddy bears who will watch over the toys taking part in the picnic. What’s more, it also has a blackout coating to reduce any light and encourage your little ones to sleep in on lighter mornings.
“If you’re looking for a more feminine style, our Charming Duckegg Roman blind is ideal. The design has a retro look and features vintage plates and tea cups, which will match the teddy bears’ tea set beautifully. Choosing an optional blackout lining can also help ensure a good night’s sleep.
“Or if you want to take inspiration from the contents of the picnic, our Strawberry Cupcakes Roman blind is the perfect choice. The pretty fabric almost looks good enough to eat and again can be paired with a blackout lining for ultimate light control. Last but not least, all of our blinds come with free child safety devices for your peace of mind.”
