For our April competition, we asked you to create some Easter egg decorations. We had some marvellous entries - what fun you all had making and transforming eggs into creatures and new ideas. Thank you to all who sent us your creations. 

Congratulations to our winners:


Isabella, age 11, Saltburn-by-the-Sea

"I wanted to do a greenhouse because it represents global warming, and I did some aubergines because if we eat more 'eggplant' and less meat, we could help to slow down global warming. I am vegan, so I wanted to find a way to show veganism through this competition, because I believe it will help ALL the animals if we all cared more about the planet, and going vegan is one way to do this."


Keziah, age 7, Falmouth

"These are my egg creatures. I made the killer whale by blowing an egg, then dying it with red cabbage (it went dark blue). I made the fins and tails from card and glued them on, then painted on the face. For the narwhal, I dyed the egg in spinach (it went grey). Then I used charcoal from our fire pit in the garden to colour it. I used a shell for the tooth."


Joshua, age 7, Edgware

"It took me about five hours in total to make this!"


Thomas Webb, age 10, Les Houches, France

"Axel Otl is an axolotl. Axolotls are amphibians that can regenerate limbs and small parts of their brain! Here is one peeping out of a pond."


Maja, age 6, Durham, A unicorn egg

We hope you all enjoy your incredible prize kits from the RSPB!

A BIG well done to some of other favourite entries:


Selena, age 10, Croydon, Ostrich egg

 

"Dear Eco Kids, This is my competition entry. I made an ostrich, his name is Eggstrich. I used and egg for his body. He is very grumpy . Here is a poem which he repeats each day:

I wish I were a camel,

To moan all day,

In the desert I would live.


I wish I were an elephant,

To spray myself with water,

In Africa I would live.

 

I wish I were a lizard,

With bright shiny scales,

In the Rockies I would live.

I wish my wishes came true,

So I could be someone else,

Rather than Eggstrich."

 


Rueben, Eggle the owl


"The egg comes from my grandfathers farm in South Africa. He has Emu’s on his farm and Eggle is one of their eggs. Emu’s eggs are black and smaller than Ostrich eggs. His feathers are real feathers from a guinea fowl. I loved making Eggle and reading all about zoos in your latest magazine."


Laurie, age 6, France

"This is Larry the alligator he is just coming out of his cave to go into the lake."


Jimmy, age 8, Bristol


Sophie, age 2, Durham


Ivor, age 6, Kingston


Betty, age 9, Kingston


Holly, age 9, Brighton 

"Hi, this is my easter egg deco that I am entering. I hope you like it! you actually gave me the idea of the hedgehog cookies."


Jessica, age 6, Leicestershire
