Kids Summer Vacation Challenge

If you are here to enter the weekly Anything Goes Challenge CLICK HERE  


 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.

Please give them a warm welcome and leave comments for them on their blog posts. Thank You xx

  1. I just popped on to enter the Wednesday challenge and had to say good on you Simon Says Stamps – encouraging these awesome youngsters and young ones to enter – absolutely brilliant! Kids of your creations are wonderful Karen

  2. Thank you so much for having this awesome challenge for the kids! My Goddaughter has been asking me repeatedly if there are any challenges for kids & I could finally say yes. She is so excited! She will be back with some more projects for sure. Thank you again for including & encouraging the kiddos!

  3. Thank you for sharing of the art works. They look wonderful. Kids are very creative and sometimes parents do not even know what their kids could do. A lot of summer camps have art’s sessions. It seems that you know how to bring the best art gift out of the kids. Great!!!

  4. What a great fun challenge and your Junior design team did a wonderful job with their projects! My 5 year old loves to make cards with me or her grandmother and I uploaded one of her card sets today. Forgot to add her age, but she’s 5!

  5. Thank you for all of your lovely comments :-) We love hosting this annual challenge and we appreciate that you love it too! :-)

  6. Oh I just love this! I recently had my niece over from Ireland and she couldn’t wait to be let loose in the craft room! The examples above are wonderful, it’s great to see so many talented under 16’s

  7. Oh what a wonderful and cute way to inspire young crafters and their beautiful mind! I have uploaded an entry for one of my child, Catherine age 7. She has 3 chalks artwork she wants to enter, but the photo with all 3 only show partial. So I selected a single photo with the duck to showcase in this entry instead. But the link will lead you to view all 3 artworks. I will be entering my 5 years old Matthew in on Wednesday when I get a chance to upload his photo onto my blog. Thanks again for this awesome kid’s challenge! My children are very excited!

  8. Catherine Hor’s beautiful art presentation of chalking is really very special. I so enjoy seeing our wonderful younger generation inspiring us! You go Catherine and Matthew!

  9. Regard my daughter’s entry #103. I hit the ENTER button too quickly and forgot to change the default TITLE to show my daughter’s name instead. It should be Catherine Hor, age 7. Thank you Lorraine for stopping by earlier to view her other entries and the lovely comment left for my Catherine. She’s very grateful.

  10. The kids creations are so wonderful! My daughter reminds me to have a look if there’s a challenge for kids this summer. She was so busy. Nearly everyday she was sitting on her little table crafting.
