Having three girls who all love colouring I couldn’t wait to take part in this competition. Somehow they manage to find pens, no matter where I hide them. Every surface of the house is a potential art work: doors, windows, the rather unfortunate pre-baby choice of a cream carpet, each other – it’s all very creative. So imagine their delight when I told them they were allowed to draw on the cereal box!
Molly got stuck in and really enjoyed using the pen set we were sent – she had never used colour changing pens before and you have never seen anyone get so excited that something has turned yellow.
While she was doing her picture I gave the twins some paper to use.
At the shop the next day we saw a line of rice crispies boxes and Molly was so excited to see them and wanted to get some for her sisters. I thought my carpet could do with a break so bought another couple of boxes.
Molly wrote the twins’ names on the boxes for them, although she got a little muddled at first and put her own name on the top. It was the end of term!

Of course what I hadn’t counted on was the fact we then had three boxes of Rice Crispies to use up. Luckily it is one of their favourite cereal – that old snap, crackle and pop magic so we used one pretty quickly. Today was a bit wet – of course it was its British summertime – so we used one of the other boxes to make Rice Crispie Cakes. Yum.
