Stripy Horse’s Winter Coat!

Autumn is here and the nights are getting chilly: the perfect time for this marvelous knitted stripy horse to arrive on our doorstep! Thanks to the fantastic Cornish knitter who made this amazing stripy horse for us- he even has a ‘Stripy Horse Toy, Handwash’ label sewn into his leg!

Have a Stripy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!

We’re off on an egg hunt this weekend and Karen’s been doing some stripy horse egg decorating in preparation! The eggs are fun to make, so why not try for yourselves and post pictures of them on the new Stripy Horse Facebook page?

To make Roly and Pitch, paint eggs then glue on paper beaks, feet and wings. Pop paper hats on their heads to finish.

For Stripy Horse, paint stripes on your egg then glue on paper legs arms and head.

Stripy Horse Mask

Choose any colour you like for your horse, or why not go spotty?

Spot The Real Stripy Horse…

We visited St Monica Infant school in Southampton a few weeks ago and were amazed to see so many superbly stripy flower pot horses lined up to greet us!

The children had all been making their own versions of Hermann, Muriel and Roly and Pitch too. Many thanks to Louise Ripley and all at St Monica’s for a wonderful day and for showing us all their fantastic creations.

We’ll be adding some more Stripy craft idea and projects to the fun stuff section of our website very soon, so keep checking here if you’re feeling creative…
