Do you and your DCs love arts and crafts? Cadbury is on the hunt to find the country’s most artistic family.

This thread is for all of those who want to enter the competition. It is also for the 50 Mumsnetters who received a box of Cadbury Dairy Milk Egg ‘n’ Spoon along with two How to Guides on what to do with your leftover box.

Here’s what Cadbury Dairy Milk have to say, “We’re really looking forward to hearing about the fun Mumsnetters had making their Egg ‘N’ Spoon box creations and, of course, seeing the pictures! We really hope that getting creative with your DCs will bring out those spontaneous moments of joy.”

Non-testers: Cadbury Dairy Milk Egg ‘N’ Spoon are launching a Mumsnet wide competition to find the UK’s most artsy family. To enter the competition you need to upload a picture onto this thread of your own Egg ‘N’ Spoon box creations. To get you started Cadbury have provided two how-to guides on how to make musical instruments from the left over box, which you can follow and add your own personal touches to.

You can view the how-to guide for Batty Aunt Polly’s Earring Drum here

You can view the how-to guide for the Mexican Bean Shaker here.

The competition will close 24th March and the winner of the competition will be announced 31st March. The winner of the competition will win a £250 John Lewis voucher.

Testers: Below are some questions we’d like you to answer but feel free to add any other thoughts you may have.

Q1. What did you make with the how-to guides?
Q2. Did you add any of your own personal touches? If so, what were they?
Q3. Which musical instrument did you prefer?
Q4. What else, if anything, did you make with your Egg 'N' Spoon box?

Please take a picture of your Egg ‘N’ Spoon box creations and upload them onto the thread so that we can all admire your your DCs EGG-celent art work!

All testers who leave their feedback and picture on this thread will be entered into a prize draw to win a £200 John Lewis voucher and will automatically be entered into the wider Mumsnet competition.

Thanks and good luck,

Thanks for letting us test the chocolate. The dd's loved them but I found it a bit to sickly grin so they scoffed all four.

Q1. What did you make with the how-to guides?
Dd decided she didn't want to make the suggestions but said they looked great. I think she wanted to make her own thing.
Q2. Did you add any of your own personal touches? If so, what were they?
None as above
Q3. Which musical instrument did you prefer?
Dd couldn't decide!
Q4. What else, if anything, did you make with your Egg 'N' Spoon?
Dd decided to make a handbag for her little sister as she loves carrying things around. She thought as the box opens it is just like the real thing and plans on hiding little chocolate eggs in it for Easter. Little dd loved it!
