VE Day - Friday 8th May

VE Day


On 8th May 1945 victory in Europe was declared and this signalled the end of a horrible war. The people of Britain were so happy, the war had gone on for 6 years and made lots of people very sad and worried. Now that it was over, everyone had a huge party! They made bunting, baked cakes and danced in the streets! Every year we celebrate this date as VE Day.



  • Can you hold a tea party with your toys to celebrate? They will need party hats and lots of bunting to decorate the bedroom!
  • Can you bake some delicious cakes and buns for your toys' tea party?
