You can download The Mumbler Memory Maker and keep it forever! There are 12 pages packed full of fun things to do and memories to make, including a word search, thoughts and feelings page and some brilliant interview questions!
I have so many pieces of paper from rainbows to work from home to fun activities we have done that I thought it would be great to put some of these special items into a scrap book. I am going to include the important dates, the letter from Boris (available here), the Queen’s speech (available here), Captain Tom’s amazing fundraising effort in this too.
Rainbow Money Box
I think rainbows in front windows will always be the image that is remembered by families in so many homes. We were lucky to receive a rainbow money box from Jasmine Pottery Studios that Mini Mumbler carefully painted before it got sent back to be glazed. It will be placed in our house proudly, always reminding us of our lockdown time together!
Really easy and simple to make. Just draw then cut around your family handprints – bright colours work best! Glue them one on top of each other, add your names and then frame!

Local creative business, Button & Bees, have created these wonderful lockdown medals that can be personalised!
Salt Dough Handprints
Here’s a simple recipe to make salt dough
500g of flour, 250g salt and 250ml of water. Knead it together into a dough and then roll it out and put it on a piece of baking paper on a baking tray. Press your handprints into it, then put it in the oven on the lowest temperature for 3 hours. Once it’s completely dry you can paint it with paint and colour the hands in with different colours of sharpie pens!

Lockdown Stick Rainbow
I think we have all been on lots of walks during lockdown and I have loved discovering new paths in our neighbourhood … some I never knew existed!!
Mini Mumbler loves picking up sticks on walks and I think this idea will be a lovely reminder of our lockdown walks!

Lockdown Journey Stick
This was actually set as my son’s home learning last week, but we thought it would be a great activity for all ages. Find a stick and wrap anything around it that you like, to create memories of your lockdown journey. Maybe it will be a wrapper from a favourite snack, a flower that was in bloom in your garden – whatever you like.
