Take a picture of  📸 your text (1 page max.), your drawing, your photo (oops no need, it’s already a picture 😜), your cake, your Lego castle, your sparrow hut, your Meccano construction, etc. and participate in the contest by sending us your picture!

Feeling extra creative? Good for them! Each child can participate once in each category.
