VE Day Activities

The 8th May celebrates VE Day or Victory in Europe Day, a day we celebrate the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of its armed forces on 8 May 1945; this year marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Normally the day would be marked with street parties, parades and frivolity but unfortunately celebrations will be different this year. The coronavirus outbreak means that there will be no street parties, parades or concerts this year, but nonetheless there is plenty going on to celebrate and we wanted to help so the Elves at Reschool HQ have been busy creating some activities that people can enjoy.

There are crafting activities, art projects, music and dance making, and even some projects for those with green thumbs. Quite a lot of the activities utilise recycled materials which is helpful at this time, when shopping isn’t easy, but also quite historically accurate and reminiscent of the blitz spirit of carrying on and ‘making do and mending’.

We hope you enjoy these challenges, we enjoyed putting them together! They are available to download below:

Thanks and keep safe!

The Reschool Team.
