One of the most emotional times of my week is Thursday at 8pm, when the whole country goes outside and claps for key workers.
Usually I’m putting my youngest to sleep and can’t participate, but this week I managed to sneak out early enough and my oldest came out of her room to see what the fuss was about.
I told her to put her ear to the window, and look at the fireworks over the hills – and that people all over the UK were standing outside, joining together and clapping, banging pots and pans, shouting, playing instruments and celebrating our amazing key workers who are saving lives and keeping our country running.
She was touched by it, and we decided that next week, we would both go into the garden and join in.
It seems like the perfect time to post this Thank You Key Workers Colouring Sheet, for your children to print off, enjoy and put in their window if they would like.
We hope you enjoy it, and you can print a copy off here.
