My Little Guest Designers for Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - Children's Easter Challenge!!!

Good Morning all :-) I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and the children are all enjoying the Easter holidays !! :-) Over at Simon Says Stamp's challenge we thought it might be nice to provide a little bit of extra incentive to get the children crafting by giving them their very own challenge :-) With all the April Showers pouring down it is nice to stay indoors and get the paints, paper and glue out !! :-) The theme is nice and easy ,,,, ANYTHING GOES !! :-) To be eligible for a chance to win a prize the child must be between 2 and 16 years old :-) Adults are allowed to help a little bit only :-) This challenge will end on Saturday 30th April at 6pm CET ( 5 pm UK time ) ,, so plenty of time to get creative :-) Heidi will be providing the prize which will be a $50 Voucher to the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

We have our own little children's DT especially for the challenge and two of them are my children :). Here are their cards for the challenge!

First up is Connor's card (age 6). Bless him, he drew it all himself and I think it is just sooooo cute! Love the expression on the bunny's face. He even cut out his own grass using Whiff of Joy's grass die. I helped just a little by cutting out the fluffy tail from a piece of scrap fabric. point out the little caterpillar especially :). Next is Kara's card. Kara is only three and so had some help from her big brother who was chuffed to be able to draw a sheep on her card for her to colour in bless him. Again, Mummy helped by cutting out some fluffy fabric for the fleece and Connor also cut out the grass shapes for her but she coloured it and glued the fabric and grass on herself. We enjoyed our little crafty session and hope it inspires your children to join us at Simon Says Stamps challenge for our children's challenge. Thanks for looking! x
