Colour Me In Rice Krispies

Last Thursday I received a rather large box of Rice Krispies from BritMums.  Included in my parcel was a fabulous Bumper Colouring Case from WH Smith which was made up of 58  pens, pencils, glitter glues and markers for my daughter to use to decorate the famous Rice Krispies characters on the front of the box.

I made the fateful mistake of showing her the colouring case just before we were about to head out the door to nursery.  I couldn't get it out of her tiny hands for want of trying!  

So, thinking on my feet, I grabbed my daughter with pens in tow as well as the box of Rice Krispies and headed out the door.  I decided that dealing with a toddler melt down on a Friday morning really wasn't top on my agenda and that she could do with a lesson in sharing, so why not let her take the pens and Rice Krispies to nursery and colour it in there with her friends?

Well, it was a big hit!  The children loved it and her key workers (aka wonderful and amazing nursery staff) also got involved.  End result?  A brightly coloured Rice Krispies box created with a variety of pens and glues by extremely talented 2 and 3 year olds!  Also, my daughter was happy to share with her friends so she had fun and learnt a valuable life lesson at the same time.

My daughter's beautiful team work entry is for the BritMums #ColourMeInRK competition, sponsored by Kellogg's.  If her entry is chosen the prize will be given to her nursery.
