Here at Happy Nest HQ we are feeling very patriotic, ready for the long weekend of celebrations. The bunting is up, cakes are made and we are hoping for gorgeous weather. We are looking forward to spending time with our family as well, celebrating 70 years of service from Her Majesty doesn’t come around often.
Emma, who helps out with our marketing and admin duties at Happy Nest, says: I’ve always supported the royals and feel honoured to be here to see our Queen mark such a long reign. She works hard and never complains, always finding humour and joy in what she does. It’s admirable.

Did you know Her Majesty The Queen is the only British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee? That means she’s been reigning for 70 whole years!
Emma, who you have just read about, has created a joint Happy Nest and Jubilee colouring in sheet for you (or your little princess) to do. It’s A4 size and very cute, featuring a picture of the Happy Nest bird wearing a crown for you to design. It’s free and available as a printable PDF version. To get it sent, email email@example.com and it’s all yours! We would love to see them in your windows.
How else can I keep my children entertained?
