Today we start to get excited about our celebrations on Friday – it’s party preparation day!
During times of rationing (and little bit like we are today) women had to really plan how they shopped and what they could buy. Sugar was rationed so cakes were made with fruit and vegetables to add natural sweetness.
Create a menu for the picnic (try to include food from the 1940’s such as corn beef or a carrot cake). Here are some great wartime recipes https://the1940sexperiment.com/100-wartime-recipes/
Think about what you will need to buy before Friday (you may want to include marshmallows, wooden skewers and tealights to roast during our campfire?!)
We would love to see your menus…

If you are a Guide – create bunting listing things on each piece of paper of things you are proud of that you have done in Guiding that you are proud of using the letters of VE DAY and things you would like to do in the future
