Blogging Event: Pottery Painting at Minikins

Last week we were very lucky to be invited by Grown Up Milk to an event at Minikin Emporium in Sale.

Grown Up Milk is a new website that aims to help parents pick healthy options for their child's nutrition, and they wanted to give us a fun day.  Minikin Emporium in Sale was the perfect venue. It is a beautiful paint and pot family art cafe and sweet shop...hang on... ALL of that?

Yep. It was fab!

We were invited to the quaint shop to paint some mugs and to have dinner. The children were each given a mug to decorate.

All three of my girls got involved, and even me and Warren enjoyed playing with the colours.

Alice loved splodging the colours everywhere

Rosie enjoyed putting her hands in the paint, feeling the texture of the brush and generally making a bit of a mess

Emily adopted a more concentrated approach and chose to do a design for her Grandma.

The cups looked great. Minikin said that they were popping them in the kiln and posting them out to us once they were done. We can't wait to see what they look like when we receive them!

We all had a buffet-style lunch with plenty of fruit, snacks and dips. Needless to say my children also loved this part! They are pretty good eaters so they had a bit of everything, even Rosie.

We also bought Emily some sweets, I mean, how could we go into a sweet shop and leave empty handed?

What I love about blogging events is that I get to meet my blogging friends. It was a lot of fun to watch all the kids in the room playing and being really creative with the paint, and before we knew it it was time to come home with our Growing Up Milk samples and some finger paints.

All in all we had a fantastic day. We love blogging. It opens up so many new doors for us as a family, and encourages to try things that we wouldn't normally try!

Thanks Grown Up Milk for the lovely day. It was enjoyed by all.
