This dinosaur “fossil” spotted at the beach at Skegness was made by Emily Leary and her children Jay and JD, aged three and seven.


Emily, who blogs at amummytoo.co.uk, shared this fab photo on Twitter of the finished result.

You can make your own using one of our Dino Sand Moulds kits from George Home – available in Asda stores while stocks last.

Emily, who bought hers from Asda Lincoln, said: "We’d stopped off for picnic supplies and this set caught my eye.

“I helped the kids make it – my daughter Jay took charge. It’s very easy to use. We dug into the sand a bit to get to the wetter stuff as it holds together better, then just made the dinosaur in minutes.

“The kids loved it but I think I was most excited about the results!”

She said: “We’re trying to fit in lots of family adventures during the summer holidays and a beach trip was high on the list.”

Happy birthday to Asda colleague Tom Brogan who is 90 today! He is a porter at our Wigan store – so his colleagues there had this fab cake specially made for him.

Tom and his 90th birthday cake

Tom, who is a great grandfather, has worked at the store or 20 years. Before working at Asda Tom had his own business running a shop and post office in Wales but moved back to his home town of Wigan, where he was born, to “retire”.

His daughter Elaine Hemingway, 66, who works at the same store in the George department, told us: “He was only back for three weeks before he got a job at Asda. He worked when he was 60 for a few years and then retired. Then one day close to Christmas he came to do his shopping in the store and was asked if he wanted to help out for a few weeks during the busy period – he said yes and he’s ended up working there ever since!”
