A Crafty Competition with Fly Thomas Cook

The people over at Fly Thomas Cook are running another great kid's competition over on their Fly Thomas Cook Kids Club website.

The site is full of great activities to keep the kids entertained over the holidays, perfect for printing out and taking with you on journeys.

They currently have a lovely competition which combines stories and craft. We headed over to the website and chose a story to inspire a crafting activity. This competition is being hosted by my lovely friend Maggy over at Red Ted Art.  There's an amazing prize bundle on offer including a Trunki case, a kid's VTech digital camera, headphones and loads more, so why not get involved.

Ruby picked the Magic Mirror and I read it to her while she did some colouring.

We decided to make our own magic mirror, and with a little help from the recycling bin, soon set to. I cut a basic hand mirror shape from cardboard.

Ruby then coloured it in with lots of pens and crayons.

We stuck milk bottle tops to form the shiny 'mirror'.

Finally, Ruby just had to add some sparkly 'jewels' to pretty it up.  What do you think?

Head over to to Red Ted Art to see the other entries, and please join in too.
