We were sent three bottles of Fruit Shoot Jam so the boys could enjoy getting creative. It is quite an entertaining activity, perhaps a little messy and chaotic, especially as my boys wanted to use cookie cutters, cocktail sticks and anything else they could salvage from the drawers. Any excuse to bring out all the kitchen utensils just for kicks…
But there has never been a better time to experiment with their jam! At the moment Fruit Shoot have a facebook competition running where you can have the chance of winning some rather fabulous prizes including for the overall winner Merlin Annual passes, so you can soon forgive the trail of sticking fingers all over the kitchen and start day dreaming about lots of lovely days out!
Entering is very simple just head to the Fruit Shoot facebook page and upload a photo of their jammy artwork and then keep your fingers tightly crossed your child does well in the competition. The competition closes on the 16th of April, so still plenty of time to enjoy being imaginative with jam. Given its getting close to Easter maybe some themed pictures could be quite fun! As it is we had a lion and a tiny little bear (blink and you miss it!).
The best part after their efforts is they got to eat their art afterwards.
So head off to the supermarket pop a Fruit Shoot Jam bottle or two into your trolley and return home to enthusiastic children eager to get inspired. Ideally buy all three bottles so you can have the choice of colours when being arty. It’s great seeing the creations already entered into the competition. Alongside the jam you can see toast, pancakes, sweets, Weetabix and ice cream used! So choose your food backdrop wisely (based on what you enjoy eating!) and start having lots of fun.
