A lotta squash for your dosh

We all know that money's a bit tight at the moment, so the idea of a drink concentrate that goes that bit further sounded great to me. 

Robinsons Double Concentrate comes in five great flavours and contains no added sugar.  What's more, it's better for the environment and saves on packaging.

Robinsons contacted me to see if we were up for their great new craft campaign 'squash monsters'.  Of course we were, and they even sent us a couple of bottles of orange double concentrate to get us started.  Trouble was, a little really does go a long way so we've only just managed to empty our bottle and make our monster before the deadline of 3rd June.  There was a point where I felt like recreating their advert and wandering around the park with a tray full of drinks.

I love that Robinsons have created a campaign to help parents get kids excited about the simple tradition of arts & crafts again. Robinsons created a ‘Squash Monsters’ crafts challenge for kids, with the support of current kids TV presenter, Laura Hamilton, and ex Art Attack presenter, Neil Buchanan.

their site before the 3rd June 2011, for inspiration on how to get ‘a lot from a drop’ and be creative with the Robinsons Double Concentrate bottle. Watch videos of Laura making example squash monsters herself, read step by step guides on Neil’s creations and also follow hints & tips on how to make you own imaginative squash monster using materials from around the home and the Double Concentrate bottles.

Even better, upload a photo of your finished creation to their site and every entry is eligible for a prize, with the grand prize being a family holiday to Florida!  

Wanna see ours?

Introducing the 'love monster' christened by Ruby as 'Crunkle'.  She claims it's a love monster because it has hearts on it. Personally I think it's more to do with the Mr Luvva Luvva tash.

What do you think?

Crunkle the love monster is always ready for a cuddle.

Why not have a go yourself. Not long to go, so best get cracking. x
