THE WACKY CHALLENGE
The Wacky Challenge was started a few years ago to entice kids away from screens and into creative fun while at home. It’s designed to help them think creatively, often with the task of using recyclables to create something new. It costs nothing to enter and requires no special skills or expensive materials. It’s Wacky Workshops’ way of sharing the passion for kids to achieve creative joy. Winners receive a prize and certificate.
The rules are simple; create the challenge project for the month. Take a picture of it and send to firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE the end of that month. Include your name, age and address (so we know where to send your prize if you win). Entries will be judged for originality on the last day of each month. The winner will be notified by email and their prize and certificate sent out during the first week of the next month.
The Wacky Challenge is open to all Australian residents to the age of 12.
This month’s challenge is to draw a picture of what makes you happy during winter. Is it hot chocolate, snuggly blankets, warm fires or something else?
