188. KIDS CLUB: Solve the Blue House Riddle to Win

188. KIDS CLUB: Solve the Blue House Riddle to Win

Home Newsroom 188. KIDS CLUB: Solve the Blue House Riddle to Win

On the first day of every month we host a special contest just for kids here at 365Barrington.com. Because today is July 1st, we have a brand new contest in the form of a riddle about a little blue house.

Any kids who can correctly answer the following riddle are eligible to win July’s Kids Club contest.  Learning Express Toys has given us another $100 worth of gift cards to give away at their stores in Barrington and Lake Zurich so the prize for our winner or winners is pretty sweet.  You’ll find details on how to enter the contest below, but first, take a look at our riddle.  You’ll need your thinking cap for this one ;).

There is a one story house and everything is blue.
The lamp is blue, the floor is blue.
The walls are blue and
the roof is blue.

What color are the stairs?

Before we share details on how to enter July’s contest, it’s time to reveal the winner from last month.  Because June is a month for celebrating dads on Father’s Day, we asked kids to draw a picture of their dads and share what they most love to do with their dad. Our winner is a ten year old boy named Patrick Wang who says, “My favorite thing to do with my dad is to play ping pong with him.” And here’s a look at the picture Patrick drew, winning him a $100 gift card from Learning Express Toys in Barrington and Lake Zurich…

We chose Patrick as the winner because of how he drew everyday household items to spell out the words “Happy Father’s Day”.  We also love how he included his baby sister, big brother, himself and, of course, his dad in his drawing.  Can you spot the Apple logo in the picture?

As our winner, Patrick has a great selection of toys to choose from at Learning Express Toys in Lake Zurich and Barrington.

The Learning Express toy buyers just returned from a summer toy show and brought back some cool new items now available in their stores like this inflatable roller.  They also have a long list of fun summer activities for kids planned at the Lake Zurich location through August 15th.  CLICK HERE for their schedule of upcoming summer play dates and a coupon for $7 off.  To learn more about hot toys, sales and events at Learning Express Toys, visit them on Facebook at Facebook.com/LearningExpressLakeZurich.

You’ll also find location and contact information at BarringtonIL.LearningExpress-Toys.com or LakeZurich.LearningExpress-Toys.com.  Thank you for sponsoring our monthly 365 Barrington Kids Club contest, Learning Express!  They’re offering $100 in prizes for July’s winner or winners as well so let’s get back to our Blue House Mystery…To enter the contest, all you have to do is follow these three steps:

1.  Solve the following riddle.

2.  Enter your answer in the “comment box” below along with your first name, your age and the suburb where you live.

3.  Please use a valid email address so we can contact you if you win. 

This contest is for kids of all ages.  You can enter your guess throughout the month of July and anyone who answers correctly will be entered into a drawing to win the Learning Express prize.  We’ll announce our winner and reveal our next contest on Wednesday, August 1st.  So here’s one more look at the riddle.  Good Luck!
