Easter Bonnet Competition

Easter is rapidly approaching; I'm not sure where this year is going? This is always a really exciting time in our house as we reflect on the Easter story and its meaning to us as Christians; I will blog in more detail about what Easter means to us as a family, but for this blog post I wanted to tell you about the fantastic competition that is being run by "The Works".

Whenever I'm in town I always make sure to go call by The Works shop as it is always full of such amazing books and craft accessories at really reasonable prices. I was very kindly asked by The Works if I would be interested in using some of their Easter products to design an Easter bonnet with the girls; I of course said yes knowing that I have two girls who love all things art and craft.

We were kindly sent a hamper containing a huge range of Easter themed arts and craft supplies to help us along our way in creating an Easter Bonnet Masterpiece:

Ruby spotted the hamper as soon as she arrived home from school, and was very keen to get making her Easter bonnet. 

Here is Ruby's Creation:

The Works are currently holding a competition that is open to everyone to see who can come up with the best Easter Bonnet creation. The competition will be judged by a surprise guest judge who will pick the lucky winners.

The first prize is a £100 gift card at the works as well as having your creation feature on all of The Work's 2016 Easter signage. The winner will also have a flyer in their local store as well as blog post featuring their creation. The second and third prizes are gift cards to the value of £50 and £20 respectively. To enter simply upload your details and a photo of your creation to the competition's homepage.

Good luck.

Disclaimer: We were sent the Art and Craft supplies to use for free in order to help promote The Work's Easter competition.
