We might be in lockdown but that does that mean that we can’t celebrate VE day 2020 at home in style. Faced with a bank holiday of staying at home and social distancing adding a a few simple celebration ideas into the mix can lift everyone’s spirits.
We’ve put together a few free last minute VE Day decorations you can print out right now. Fancy making VE Day bunting with the kids, we have you covered!
Want to put a few VE Day posters in your window for passers by to enjoy? We have a few union jack posters ready to print out. If your kids fancy colouring in, then we have those options too!
If you have some craft sticks to hand, print and cut out our union jacks and simply stick to lolly pop sticks for a really simple decoration. You could even use them for a VE Day treasure hunt around the home and garden.
As well as hanging bunting and sharing a traditional afternoon tea there are plenty of virtual VE day celebrations 2020 ideas taking place online for you to enjoy with your family.
