Calling all kids! Grab your favorite critter and enter the 2012 LA-CO All Weather Decorating Contest. You could win up to $1000! Kids ages 10-17 use LA-CO All-Weather Paintstiks, Twist-Stik Markers and/or Quik Shot paint to decorate an animal or other object. This year’s theme is the Olympics.
To test the feasibility of decorating a real, live animal, my girls and I decorated our baby goat, Toddler. He was the friendliest critter on the farm that day and small enough to keep a good hold on. We used Quik Shot paint, which comes in an inverted spray can. The result? A somewhat impressive baby dragon. More importantly, we had a great time and lots of laughs in the process!
Technically you can decorate anything in this contest....the sidewalk, a bed sheet, your T-shirt, barn doors, the side of your house. Trust me, it’s more fun when your canvas is trying to get away! So, get creative. Think Olympics....your horse as Michael Phelps or your show lamb as the Olympic torch. Have fun!
Entries must be submitted to LA-CO by Dec 31, 2012. There will be two $1000, two $500 and two $250 winners chosen.
Good luck! Lori H
