Unleash your parent-and-child junk-modelling skills here!

Mumsnet has joined forces with Fairy to launch a competition to find the most creative junk modellers among Mumsnetters and their children. And the winning parent-and-child team (as judged by Mistress of Junk Modelling herself, Blue Peter's Konnie Huq) will walk off with a dishwasher or £250 Space NK vouchers and a fab arts-and-crafts kit.

Your joint creation can be made from any everyday items you've finished with (old cereal boxes, yogurt pots, string, tin foil, wrapping paper, old socks - you know the sort of thing) BUT it MUST contain one of the following: the limited edition Fairy bottle; the clear modern Fairy bottle, or an empty Fairy dishwasher tablet pouch.

You can find more details on how to enter here. (Do read those Ts and Cs carefully.)

Closing date: 29 March 2010.

Good luck!

I have to win this MN!

I won the year's supply of Fairy on Monday. Yesterday my dishwasher stopped working. I have to blame MN and Fairy involvement obviously, so surely deserve the new dishwasher as a resilt???

Brilliant! I was hoping this would come up. I've already been planning my our sculpture and hoarding Fairy bottles

Are you allowed more than one entry?
DD2 is 5 and told me what she wants to make but DD1 is 6 and wants to make something else.

I hope we get our years supply prize in time!

I was going to ask the same as tortoise. My dc's fall into both age groups and both would like to enter. Is that ok? hmm

The words 'junk modelling' fill me with gloom, I must say.

And I am wondering what on earth one might make with an empty dishwasher tabs pouch? Handbag? Lung? Model hoover?

midnightexpress Sat 27-Feb-10 14:21:23

Ah, I see. A peg bag. Right...

Bonsoir Sat 27-Feb-10 14:23:11

midnightexpress - I agree. Reminds me of horrible things made out of loo roll tubes and discarded egg and camembert boxes, all liberally doused in poster paint c. 1970.

Nowadays you can buy such lovely creative materials that even little tiny children can make nice things.

an empty dishwasher tabs pouch? that would be quite a challenge

Tortoise and easyeggs - Fairy say more than one entry is fine - the more the merrier!

I get dictatorial and controlling with craft projects.

"No darling, put it there <pinch> <Stepford smile>".

God help DD if she doesn't toe the line with regards to my artistic vision.

Where's the Frida Kahlo smiley when you need it?

DC2 is 7 weeks old, can I use him as a paintbrush and enter the 0-5 group? grin pleeease?

Katz Wed 03-Mar-10 18:25:50

we've sent out entry - i let DD2 do it by herself so it's not quite blue peter standard.

pixierara Thu 04-Mar-10 16:50:17

oh, oh, oh - have already saved a cereal packet and clear fairy bottle and am awaiting my fairy prize - we got a winning idea grin

ruddynorah Sat 06-Mar-10 21:52:12

'winners will be selected at random' ????!!!!

so you aren't going to pick the best one for each category??!!

i dd will enter then!

Will SWMNBN find out if I make a rocket out of a Fairy bottle? Seems the obvious thing to make, especially to a five year old boy... To clarify, we are not necessarily planning to strap his baby brother to it and send it to the Middle East though...
