The PTFA Easter fill a matchbox competition was entered by eighty children for some fun in the holidays! Some very unusual items were collected including a piece of tyre from Brands Hatch, a guinea pig pellet, a dried baked bean, an eyelash, a fossil, dog hair, spices, fluff and beads. Many of the boxes were decorated imaginatively including designs such as a beat box, diary and popcorn box!
It was amazing to see how many tiny items could be squeezed in but Ava Lily Year 1, managed an incredible 103 different listed items.
The most unusual item was a shark’s tooth from The Natural History Museum, put in by Edward Year 3.
The best decorated box was designed by Missy Year 4, she won because the content of her box was interactive. Her box was decorated with the cross and contained the Easter story in a tiny book, stone, nails and lego Jesus.
The winners for best decorated, most unusual and most contents received a £5 gift voucher from The Works and runners up received stickers.
