Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kids Challenge

 Hi all and welcome to another of our annual Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid’s Challenge where we host a special challenge dedicated to our young designers.


It is time for all you crafters to let your children loose in your crafty corners for a few hours. Just close your eyes and set them free to explore their creativity. You are allowed to hide your Copic Markers and extra special papers and you are allowed to help just a little bit if necessary, but we really want the children to ‘DO IT’ themselves as much as possible.

This challenge is open to all children aged between 2 and 16 inclusive

We have not 1, not 2 but  3 surprise parcels of crafty goodies, hand picked by Simon!

For this challenge we have a very special Junior Design Team who I am sure you will agree have done an excellent job.
I've been spoiled today as I have three lovely little Guest Designers on my blog so please give a warm welcome to my great nephews & niece,Ollie, Marcus & Casey.
Created by Ollie, age 5.
Ollie is a huge Avengers fan and has created a model of his favourite Avengers character Thor. Ollie used card stock, tissue paper, paint, googly eyes, a pom pom & a lot of glue to create his amazing Thor.

Created by Marcus, age 7

Marcus has altered an old blue watering can to create his gorgeous masterpiece. Marcus  coated his watering can with white paint & was supervised by his Nan to use her Cuttlebug to die cut lots of pretty butterflies, flowers & leaves.

Created by Casey, age 4

Casey has created a beautiful picture of a caterpillar for me to share with you today. Casey has used a circular cardboard tube dipped in paint to create her caterpillar, & has drawn some cute faces, legs & antenna to finish her wonderful work of art.
So now its time to let YOUR kids loose in your craft room, you are allowed to hide your most precious crafty goodies though *wink*
This special challenge ends on 31st August at 1pm UK time so there is plenty of time to let your kids get creative :)

    Ollie, I love Thor! I am not sure who Thor is, but I am going to google and find out now! He looks awesome!
    The altered watering can is so pretty! WOW!! That must have taken you ages to make Marcus! but the result is gorgeous!
    and your super cute Caterpillar Casey is adorable, I love how you used a tube dipped in paint, was it an empty Smarties tune by any chance? :-)
