Lockdown A-Z Competition Time!

How many LETTERS can you find representing the things can you see?

Deadline for entries: 23 June 2021

Rules (none of the examples given are in the painting!)

LETTERS are the first letters of the things you can see in the painting (M is for Mug, R is for Rust)

English language words only

Letters can be counted for each thing they represent (B for bat, B for ball etc.)

If represented by two words (Bath mat), then only the first letter (B), counts

If objects can be described in different ways, each way can be included. A Bath mat can be described as a Bath mat (B) or a Mat (M) so you can have both.

If objects are described by different words (Glue or Adhesive) – both count

Some objects include different words within them (Plastic Biro could include Biro, Plastic, Ink, Cap, Lid, Blue etc, but only if visible)

As you can see above, you can include the material that an object is made from (Biro / Plastic)

Colours are included – just to add more fun!

It is obvious that this could go on and on ……….The winner is the one with the most LETTERS, who will receive a copy of the RI book!
