My Kids have Captured the Colour

My boys have always loved taking photos so they were really excited when I told them they were going to get a new camera to take part in a competition.  It did have to be a joint effort between Zac (7) and Ethan (6) as I would have had tears and tantrums if I'd had to choose between them.

So here are their photos:

Green - we live on the edge of the Brecon Beacons so on a day out it seemed very appropriate to stop at the top for Zac to take a photo.  I just love this one with all the different shades of green.  I was also very impressed - I don't think I could have taken a better photo.

Yellow - we went to a food festival last weekend and Ethan headed straight for the cheeses to take photos. The smell was a bit too strong for me so I stood back while he went for the perfect shot.  The stall holder did wonder what we were doing, but Ethan won her over with his smile.

Red: this is Ethan again, this time with the red chillies and salsa.  The boy really does love his food and I love how the colour of those chillies.

White - on another drive over the mountain Zac saw the clouds and thought this would represent white really well.  There was nowhere to stop so he had to take the photo from the car.  I love that the sky is lit up beneath the clouds.

Blue: on a day trip to Legoland we visited Star Wars Miniland where Zac took this very blue photo for the competition.  I have absolutely no idea what it is, though I'm guessing I probably should as I live in a house full of boys!

Both boys took some amazing photos of every colour of the rainbow and they had great fun in the process. I've also got lots of photos of random people and close ups of me (not good and will be deleted).

This is our competition entry for Travel Supermarket Kids Capture the Colour Competition.  Zac and Ethan received a camera in order to take part.

Win a bundle of goodies from Cadbury

Win this fantastic bundle of goodies from Cadbury

The summer holidays are here, and whilst your little ones may be super excited about being off school especially during London 2012, this long break poses a problem for parents - so, how can you keep your whole family entertained? To help you we've come up with our top five things to do during the Summer Holidays - with the Olympic Games in mind....

1)    Explore the great outdoors? Even if it is just the local park!
Taking your kids to a park is one of the easiest things you can do and not only is it free, there are plenty of things to do there to keep your kids entertained. You can rent bikes, go on a horse ride, play sport and even have a picnic!

2)    Get their creative juices flowing with some culture!
Again, lots of museums are free entry and are fun and educational for the whole family. There are many fun activities you can do with your children when you are there, for example if you are at an art gallery why not get the kids to have a go at a masterpiece themselves!

3)    Turn your little swimmers into champions!
Get your children into the spirit of the Olympics by challenging them to a swimming competition. Not only is this great exercise for the kids but splashing around is also fun for parents too!

4)    Award gold medals with your own Olympic bakeoff!
Why not bake cakes for any Olympic parties you might be having? Turn the baking into a competition and award gold medals to the most outstanding effort!

5)    Take your children to Cadbury House
It's all about Cadbury House at Hyde Park, which will be running 27th July to 12th August where children will be able to take part in the ultimate chocolate experience from experiencing the 'Chocolatrium' to participating in the Great Games Hall in loads of fun Olympic themed games. It's the perfect place to keep children busy during the summer holidays and Olympics.

Running from the 27th July to 12th August, Cadbury House at Hyde Park is part of the BT London Live experience throughout the London 2012 Olympic Games. Your children will enter through a walkway into a tasting zone to experience Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, before continuing into the ?Chocolatrium? to take part in Cadbury experiences for Twirl, Creme Egg, Wispa, Freddo and Cadbury Dairy Milk, before moving into the Great Games Hall to try out a series of Olympic themed games and stand on a podium to be awarded a Cadbury chocolate medal. It is the perfect place to take your kids during the Olympics, and a place for you to enjoy some chocolate yourselves! Check out our video to see it being made:
