To celebrate publication of Sue Hedra's new character Supertato (the supermarket hero with eyes everywhere) Simon & Schuster are offering you the chance to win great prizes including £100 children's books and = fabulous potato head costumes.

Get your children to decorate and design a potato head, either by using the images on the downloadable cut-out-sheet or you can come up with your own ideas and then take a photo of their creation and upload it to this thread.

The competition closes on 4 August and winners will be announced later that week.

Great to see Ms Sophie Ellis-Bextor has tweeted a pic of her children's efforts earlier today. Stirling effort! Looking forward to seeing more potato heads soon.

SuperTato to the rescue!!

My 2 year old daughter wanted to make a bunny rabbit potato, whilst my son was very keen to stick with the supertato theme. So they worked together as a team and we ended up with BunnyTato stuck on top of a building with Supertato flying to the rescue! (Backdrop of buildings and sky/clouds also made by my 8 year old son).

3y old DD1's effort. Maybe I should've helped her a bit....

Here is my son hiding behind his potato head

My son decided that Batman potato is a better idea.

Supertato has rapidly become my 2 1/2 year old's favourite book so I've knitted him his own Supertato and "Escapea".

With a dinosaur obsessed two year old, it had to be a dinosaur.

My son's.

Age 8.

I don't really think he was trying!

Has the competition closed then? My DD is waiting for the paint to dry on hers!

vestandknickers Mon 04-Aug-14 17:39:30

Here we go. Paint dry!

Star Wars inspired apparently.
