Following on from our great Easter Egg Shaker Giveaway, we’re launching two Creative Competitions, open to all UK children of school age, and with great prizes for the winners and for their schools.
We’re thrilled to have joined forces with Music House for Children for these brilliant competitions, and we’re completely over the moon that their patron, the utterly fabulous Sophie Ellis-Bextor, will be judging the winners for us!!!
More on this soon and on the new “Once upon a Song” Podcast series by Music House (also featuring Sophie), that’s kicking off on 6th April with a specially commissioned Egg Song.
It’s all happening!
And for families with younger children
Music House for Children’s Once Upon a Song podcast has been created specially to support children’s language and creative musical play with stories old and new accompanied by songs, sounds and instrumental mayhem. Goes live on April 6th. Expect special young guests reading stories too!
Back to the competitions: there’s an egg decorating competition – “Best Dressed Egg” – and an egg shaking competition – “Best Performing Egg” – and they’re both fun, creatively stimulating and easy to enter.
