 ‘Beware of the Fridges

These are wild undomesticated fridges

Approach with Caution

Do not Feed the Fridges’

Local primary schools had really got into the spirit of things putting a lot of time and effort into their fridges.

 As you can see, I went bananas over Chewton Primary School’s fridge. I found the imaginary contents of the ‘preserves’ in the jars irresistible.

  1. Oh how I laughed at some of these photos… truly imaginative work!

    • Yes Lori, Each school created something unique and I was tickled by the humour on display. I think the kids had a great time decorating the fridges.

  2. What an entertaining post! Such a colourful and fun collection, Margaret. The fridge “maggot” at the end reminded me of my son when he was a little lad. He couldn’t say magnet properly. He would call them maggots! 🙂 Like Lori, I laughed out loud. “Unicorn vomit soup.” Children have a wonderful way of bringing reality into our lives with their language. Great pictures! 🙂

    • Hi Jane, Apologies for the tardiness of my response. I was intrigued by the gender differences in the naming of the contents of the jars. The girls seemed to want to make the contents appealing whilst the boys were trying to outdo each other in how yucky the contents were.
