As with all bank holiday weekends when in this country it inevitably decides to rain, we find ourselves looking for indoor activities that will entertain the kids for a few hours. 
Just yesterday this fantastic opportunity arrived from Cath Kidston to try their Gnome Painting workshops here in our own home!
What a perfect treat for a Friday morning and for Raph's first day off for school holidays.
This Easter Cath Kidston launch their newest campaign related to a new print, their brilliant Gnome. From dresses to bags, aprons to salt and pepper pots, this little character is appearing on lots of new Cath Kidston products.

As I said, we have been sent a few of the gnomes to paint over this weekend and the kids absolutely love them! I thought I would let Rob try his hand at getting creative too, so donning his Gnome apron he let his artistic juices flow and decorated his new little friend. 
The children had a lot of fun decorating their gnomes. We will have to find a window sill to sit them on so they can take pride of place in the house somewhere. They are like new little best friends, it's funny how children get instantly attached to little things!

I can see these workshops being a great success, what's not to love. 

There unfortunately are not any Cath Kidston shops here in Lincoln, though we do have Stockists like Pretty Little in Lincoln. Our closest store is probably Meadowhall Sheffield, which is also lucky as that is one of the places where Cath Kidston will be offering Gnome painting workshops! Other stores include Bluewater, Cardiff, Cambridge, Dublin, Liverpool, Metro Centre Norwich, Manchester King Street, Piccadilly, Trafford Centre, White City and York. Head on down to you nearest store to find out more about the workshops!

Keep an eye on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as we will be sharing a few snaps of our own little Gnorris The Gnome over the Easter weekend!


P.S. Rob has been coming up with gnome puns for the last 2 days now, safe to say, he is also enjoying this little project!
