A three-year-old’s creativity and an artistic eye have helped The Folly Nursery at Dalwood win first place in a nationwide art competition
Sebastian Gray’s Christmas card design was judged the best in a contest run by the Mini Me Card Company, which attracted entries from across the UK.
“We are so proud of Sebastian for winning,” said The Folly’s manager Helen Freeman. “Our lovely prize of a Butterfly Garden will help all our children learn about growing over the next few months.”
Preschool room leader Chloe Storey, who organised the activity for the children to create their artworks, said: “Creativity is so important for children and it helps them express themselves and develop in so many different ways. We really enjoyed doing our artworks which were turned into wonderful Christmas cards and whilst we thought they were exceptionally good we never expected to get into the finals and then for Sebastian to go and win. Well done, Sebastian.”
