It’s the first day of the month and that means it’s time for our monthly 365 Barrington Kids Club contest with cool prizes on the line, courtesy of Learning Express Toys. We have three winners from last month’s challenge, which was to draw a picture of your mom for mother’s day and to tell us what you love most about her.
Seven kids from three different Barrington families submitted artwork for this contest and we’ve decided to split the $100 Learning Express Toys gift certificate to share with all three families. But we have another $100 to give away this month and have decided to give our new contest a Father’s Day theme. Entering is easy. Just share this challenge with your kids, give them some paper, markers, paints or crayons and let their imaginations do the rest…
Draw a picture of your dad on on a piece of paper.
On the same piece of paper (or on a second sheet) write your name, your age and tell us what is your favorite thing to do with your dad. (It’s ok to ask an adult for help with this part.)
Please be sure to include an address, email and phone number so we can notify our winners. The rest is easy.
To enter the contest, just pop those papers in the mail to the address you’ll find below or drop them off at Learning Express Toys in Barrington or Lake Zurich. Tell them it’s an entry for the latest 365 Barrington Kids Club contest and they’ll take care of the rest. We’ll share our entries and announce the winners when we reveal our new contest theme at the beginning of the next month.
To make sure we are able to share this new dad art for Father’s Day, all submissions must be received by the deadline which is two weeks from today on Friday, June 15th.
