The Peppa Pig Boat

I’m not a big fan of merchandising.  I’m pretty reluctant to shell out on the magazines, backpacks, lunch boxes and suchlike that feature characters from gerry’s favourite shows, mainly because by the time I’ve got round to buying him something, he’ll have a new favourite show or character. (they’re also a lot more expensive than plain old lunch boxes, rucksacks etc- I can’t deny that this affects my decision too…)

But that doesn’t stop Gerry loving them. And I don’t want to deny him everything that he loves… So we came up with a compromise today- we spent the afternoon decorating with Peppa  Pig illustrations!

We chose to decorate an old box- or ‘boat’, as Gerry prefers to think of it. But it got me thinking- you could decorate anything in this way: the front of a notepad, or toy boxes, or whatever you fancy…

We google searched for some of out pictures, then printed them out. We also found an old magazine ( I said I didn’t like them, not that I never bought them…) and cut out some pictures from there. Then we simply stuck them onto the boat and she was ready to sail!
