Tissue Box Challenge WINNERS

                 Tissue Box Challenge Winners
Each of the entries in the Tissue Box Challenge  was truly wonderful. I am so glad that JDaniel4’s Mom and I didn’t have to make the choice. We left the judging up to the amazing Maggie of Red Ted Art.

She wrote this in a note to us today:  My is it HARD to choose…. But so cool to see all the ideas!

Tissue Box Challenge Winners
The first place winner is the The Three Pigs by My Oatmeal Kisses.
They have won a learning kit from Time for Tots.

Maggie shared that she liked  how they saw a house in the “tissue box” – they propped it up and hey presto you have a basic house. She also loved it when you make nursery rhymes or stories real by creating a craft around it. I can just  imagine my children playing with this and putting on a “show”. Wonderful. (and of course, I am rather partial to the Loo Roll piggies too).

The second place winner is  The Earth Day Bird by Creativity My Passion.
They have won a set of three paper back books from Tiger Tales Books.

Maggie shared that she loved how they saw the nice print on the box and converted into something wonderful – i.e. you couldn’t have made it with an ordinary box… and it is a wonderful way to look at something ordinary and see some extraordinary in it! They used the pattern and part of the box to form the new bird. It is like a Pheonix rising from the ashes.

The third place winner is Sensory Box by Two Bears Farm.
She will be receiving a set of board books from Tiger Tales.

Maggie shared that there were two “mystery boxes” submitted, and of course both ideas were fabulous. It was really hard to choose one over the other. But I went for this one in the end, as I thought it was fun to have the 3 different boxes to put your hands into. It is nicely decorated and the little curtain is great. I can just imagine the “excitement” of  having a feel and reminds me of science days at the museum when I was
