Anyone out there reading this who’s on childcare duties over the incredibly long 7 week summer holidays that the children have this year will probably be desperate for anything fun and interesting to do with the kids (and if it doesn’t cost much that’s a bonus). We may all love our children dearly but even the bubbliest and most positive of parents should admit that 7 weeks of summer holiday is, at times, bloody hard work.
Which brings me to Andi Watson’s Haunted Teapot contest:
From Andi’s Glister blog:
“Tomorrow is officially the start of the school hols round these parts, so it’s time to get drawing!
If you have a copy of Glister: The Haunted Teapot you’ll know there’s a teapot-shaped space to design your own haunted teapot on the inside back cover. Please e-mail me your designs as a .jpg file and I’ll send out a Glister sketch to those who come up with my faves (by post or by e-mail). If you’re happy to have your pics on the blog let me know and I’ll post them here.
You don’t have to use the actual template in the book, you can start getting creative on any old piece of paper and e-mail them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
IMPORTANT: If you’re under 18 please get permission from a grown up before sending your drawings.
This is open to all-ages so get scribbling regardless of how old or young you are.”
We did ours earlier this week. Molly had a great time on a rainy morning:
So, what are you waiting for – get drawing!
Andi Watson’s Glister: The Haunted Teapot and Glister: The House Hunt are available right now from Walker Books and all major bookshops.
