Painting with Grandad

Love butterflies? Why not put your artistic skills to the test and design a butterfly, moth or caterpillar themed T-shirt?

To celebrate the launch of our updated family pack we are offering children the chance to design their own T-shirt. The winning designers will get a t-shirt with their design printed on and their T-shirt will be sold in our shop!

What to do
Make a bright, colourful picture of a butterfly, moth or caterpillar. Try having a look in your garden or local park for inspiration or if you get stuck have a look around our website or for some ideas.

The competition is split into two age groups, under 9’s and 9 to 13. There will be one winner from each group. Competition closes on 30 September 2014. Winners will be announced by the end of October 2014.
