During these uncertain times, we feel it’s more important than ever for us to stand together, ‘Keep Calm and Carry On Smiling’. That’s why our young troupe, The D-Day Juniors, have been thinking of different ways to entertain the nation’s children with a variety of WW2-inspired facts and activities and, as we’re all in this together, the grown-ups can get involved too!
From arts and crafts, to singalongs and games, the Juniors will be sharing video guides on how to get in the wartime spirit. Fancy turning your hand to creating ‘make do and mend’ toys of the era? Making an indoor air raid shelter? Growing your own vegetables? Writing postcards or filming song videos to bring cheer to the older generation who are stuck indoors?
There’ll be fun tips, along with facts about rationing, evacuees, gas masks and much more on their social media channels in the coming weeks – keep your eyes peeled to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or search for @ddayjuniors on TikTok.
In the meantime, they’ve put together this fun little colouring page which you can print out in the safety of your own home! Feel free to make it as colourful as you like using bright pencils, crayons or paints and display it proudly in your front window to brighten up someone’s day as they take their daily walk by.
Take a photo of it and post it to their Facebook page with the hashtag #PassItOn for a chance to win a copy of our the brand-new VE Day Celebration Edition of our album, ‘I’ll Remember You’, which features a song from The D-Day Juniors, ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’ and is set for release in May!
