Those vegetable faces keep coming in.....


It has been Britain's wettest summer on record. Entertaining children in the wet is never easy. We have watched our entire DVD collection, played board games and visited all the museums. But who would have thought the answer to family boredom lay in the vegetable basket? As the rain pelted down on the roof of our kitchen, we made faces out of vegetables. What started off as a desperate cry for help from grinding boredom, has now turned into real entertainment. Here are is an update of all of your creations. We challenged you all to find your inner child and we haven't been disappointed. Especial thanks to children like Ethan, Ella and Leila from Freddie who loved seeing your vegetable pictures.
Those of you who havent yet found time, or vegetables, go on - have a go, you know you want to!

  1. Can you hear me laughing, all the way from Missouri??!!! And Freddie, maybe when you use a particularly yucky-sounding vegetable in a sweet face, then you won't need to actually eat it? (Right, Mum?)

    Cheers, all --
