TAMWORTH’S Flo and Danny Davidson love arts and craft and believe in giving everything a go, and it’s netted them big wins at this year’s Tamworth Show.
The sister and brother duo took out 10 placings across the various junior pavilion categories – their achievements are too numerous to list.
The first-time entrants went through a copy of the pavilion guide that their mum, Rebecca, picked up for them, and the children decided which sections to enter.
Their entries included a bridge that Danny constructed from paddle pop sticks, and a plate that Flo painted showing the three stages of wheat, with a tractor, the wheat and then bread.
To assist with their entries in the glass decoration section, Danny went to all the op shops looking for glasses and plates for them to work with.
Flo said she wanted to enter all the sections because she enjoyed doing art and it’s fun.
As well as arts and crafts, the two primary school students tried their hand at cooking, with Flo making biscuits, pikelets, a quick mix cake, patty cakes and a vanilla cake and both children made raspberry jam and decorated cakes.
These are the first trophies the children have won, and their mum, Rebecca, was not to be
outdone. At the last minute, she decided to enter a sponge cake, which won the section.
“I wasn’t going to enter, because I wasn’t sure it was good enough, but the kids said to me ‘It’s not about winning, it’s about having a go’, so I thought I’d put it in,” she said.
“It was great to walk around and see everybody else’s entries, too. The ladies and men work so hard over there and they said the entries were up on all sections. We entered, really, to support the show.”
Next year Danny wants to enter the Leo section as well and Flo is going to try her hand at scrapbooking.
