Kids Summer Vacation Challenge!


If you are here for the usual weekly Anything Goes Challenge CLICK HERE


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. Adults are allowed to help just a little bit if necessary, but we really want the children to ‘DO IT’ themselves as much as possible.

You can enter as many times as you like, just remember to add your link into the inlinkz system at the bottom of this post! If you have several entries on the same post add ?1. ?2, ?3 etc at the end of the url and they will be accepted into the system.

The Design Team all love this challenge and are ready and waiting to pop over to your blog to see your creations!

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. All winners are chosen at random, Good Luck to all!

Here are some fabulous examples created by our Junior Design Team. Please pop by their blogs to leave them a lovely comment. Thank You

  1. How fun!! So awesome you are doing a challenge just for kids!
    My daughter was super excited (age 5) when I told her there was a contest just for kids! And my son who is 3 asked if he can make a card for it too. But we will see, he isn’t really the crafty type, but my daughters enthusiasm must have been contagious.

    1. we ‘re looking forward to seeing what your daughter makes and I am sure your son will be joining in too, we would love to see them both included ;-)

  2. I have a 4 year old and 7 year old who just love to color and make cards. My 7 year old makes cards for her aunts and uncles, cousins, grandparents…you name it. My 4 year old prefers to draw pictures that she leaves in piles on our kitchen table, lol.

  3. Though my 3 yo loves to colour, we don’t usually make a card out of them. Thank you for giving a reason to have a crafty time together!

  4. Thanks for all of your lovely comments :-) We all love this challenge an look forward to seeing what the kiddo’s make! FUN!! :-)
