Make Thinking Day cards using mauve or purple construction paper.
Draw bare tree shapes (trunk/branches only) with black markers on the card.
Photocopy a Japanese lady, one for each girl to colour and glue on her card.
Cut pink tissue paper into little rectangles. The girls make one twist in the tissue and glue it on the tree for the plum blossom.
