As it's been raining, I've been looking for ways of keeping the kids amused inside, so a recent email from Galt Toys piqued my interest. It said : "Galt Toys is calling all budding artists to recreate 'The Kiss' painting by Gustav Klimt as part of this month's Mini Masterpiece competition! Everyone who enters will receive a FREE greetings card from snapfish.co.uk, to turn your painting into a card to send to friends or family. All paintings will also be displayed on the Galt website for all to see! The lucky winner will receive a huge bundle of arts and crafts goodies worth £50! We'd love you to enter - all the competition details can be found here - http://blog.galttoys.com/2014/06/18/the-kiss-by-gustav-klimt/ The competition closes on Monday 21st July."
You go to the website and download a black and white version of the painting to colour in however you see fit. As you can see, Pierre and Juliette both took this very seriously !
Here's Pierre's version - love the bright shiny sun which definitely wasn't on the original !
And Juliette's finished masterpiece - Picasso would be proud of them because they've definitely gone for originality !
It's a great way of keeping the kids entertained for a while and who knows, they might win !
