As I have been on a bit of a reading theme lately with my #Dadsread post and my Lostmy.name review/giveaway post, I thought I would continue on with words and add in another of my favourite themes - food. As Children's book week is coming up, I am preparing to bombard Albert with ultimate-learning-force and hopefully he'll say his first proper words soon!
Anyway, I heard about a little competition Heinz and Tots100 are running at the moment and thought I could have some fun with it. I have included some info below, so keep reading to see what I got up to.
Children's Book Week 2014
This year, Children's Book Week takes place between 30 June - 4 July in the UK. Schools, libraries and other venues all over the UK will be hosting their own events and activities during the week, aimed at encouraging children to enjoy reading for pleasure, explore libraries and bookshops, and even start writing themselves.
TOTS100 & Heinz Competition
Heinz and Tots100 have teamed up to launch a fantastic blogger competition inspiring parents to educate their children at home!
Heinz is always looking to generate smiles at meal times by encouraging children to express their creativity. Children love to spell out their names and make interesting shapes using Heinz Alphabetti and Numberetti.
In line with Children’s Book Week, Heinz has taken this creative idea one step further, inviting you and your children to recreate a quote from your favourite children’s book using Heinz Alphabetti.
Not only does this competition allow you to enjoy tasty Heinz Pasta, it provides the perfect excuse to spend time with your children, making meal times fun.
That’s not all, we have an amazing prize up for grabs – you could win a year’s supply of Heinz Pasta and £250 worth of book vouchers!

If you have read some of my posts in the past you will know that I am particularly proud of Albert's nursery, it's one of my most popular posts so people must like reading about it and seeing what we did when we decorated it! HERE is the post if you want to check it out.
One of my favourite children's books is Cockatoos by Quentin Blake, and as the nursery is decorated in that style, that's what I went for. Check it out below!
"Good morning my fine feathered friends"

This photo is my entry into the TOTS100 and Heinz #HeinzPastaQuotes competition.
I remember eating Alphabetti Spaghetti when I was younger (all the way into my twenties, I still like it now actually) and one of the funnest parts of doing this was eating all the cold spaghetti afterwards. After all, it couldn't be wasted.
Educational and delicious. What a combo.
Hope you liked it, now whats for your dinner? Alphabetti on toast…
