Celebrating the Queens 90th Birthday


Our Queen officially became 90 on 21 April 2016. We have seen a month of different celebrations during May, and her official birthday will be celebrated on a Saturday in June. We will be celebrating in our family with a little help from iChild.

Have you heard of iChild? It is a fantastic company who provides FREE educational resources for parents, teachers, and carers of children aged 0-11 years old.

  1. I meet the queen – my sister live in south Sussex and the queen was visiting a library, my niece was to give her flowers so I accompanied my niece. A very quick meeting and it was all over before you knew it happened. For a lady her age her skin was truly flawless. My niece never got over it and still everybody she meet. xx

  4. Hope you enjoy your celebrations! I have to confess I won’t be doing anything special 🙂

  5. This looks great, I love all the celebrations. I have bought a few bits and pieces in case we do anything but I’m not sure it will come off now. We used to do street parties with our neighbours but it hasn’t happened in a while 🙁

  6. These are great! I’m a youth leader and these would be perfect unfortunately we don’t have the funds for monthly memberships and have to make do with our own ideas.

  7. This looks amazing. I hope you enjoy the celebrations xo

  8. Enjoy your celebrations! I can not believe the Queen is 90 – how amazing is that!

  9. That looks like it would keep me occupied for long enough, let alone kids! I can’t wait for Trooping the Colour and the party on the The Mall. Stephen

  10. Will have to look into this, I tend to use Twinkle but this looks as good if not better

  11. I’ve never heard of Ichild, but I can not believe the queen is going to be 90, she looks so good for her age x

  12. This sounds a brilliant way of introducing children to current affairs and keeping up to date yourself. The discount from Letts is so worthwhile too.
