It’s been a busy few weeks of crafting in our house, we’ve got up to all sorts of great stuff! You can check out my signature blog “A boy with Aspergers” if fancy taking a look at some of the fantastic crafts, including Easter crafts, myself and the children have been having fun creating.
Alice Sara my daughter who is 9 going on 20, has been busy with not only the above, but a very special project of her own, one she’s really got her teeth stuck into.
What better way to spend the 2 hours, then chilling out in your bedroom designing your very own washing machine! Yes, I did just say washing machine!
One of my lovely twitter friends who writes the awesome blog “Boo Roo and Tigger Too” has launched a competition especially for us blogging lot! Sarah, the lovely lady behind the blog has launch the competition in association with “Appliances Online” and is giving all that take part the chance to win a £75 Amazon voucher. When I discovered it was a creative competition, I just had to announce it to the kids, I knew it would quite possibly have my daughter running to the craft box.
Alice-Sara loves crafting and above all else, drawing, so, yes this was right up her street.
Basically, all you have to do to enter is get your child/children to design a washing machine! This can be round, square, brightly coloured, covered in Barbies, it doesn’t matter, there is no hard fast rules as to how your design must look, just get them using their imaginations. Entries can be blogged or tweeted and the full T&C can be found on Sarah’s blog (just click HERE)
I loved my daughters finished design. Bright and sparkly, it oozed character. I really couldn’t wait to come online and show it off.
Here’s a picture of Alice-Sara getting to work on her piece.
Here’s what Alice-Sara used to design her washing machine.
Large sheet of paper
Brightly coloured felt tip pens
Large Black permanent Marker (for bold outline)
Tons and tones of imagination
Alice-Sara, says her design has been inspired by rainbows, and what pretty rainbows they are too!
So, what do you make of her finished design? Win or lose, my daughters drawings will always be winners for me. *Proud Mummy Moment*
Note, Alice is 9, though she does tend to write the number 9 upside down, hence the reason this looks somewhat similar to that of a 6! 🙂
