It’s Day 3 of our “Fun at Home” Distance Learning Photo Contest. Your challenge today is to Make Something Cool and we’ve already received our first entries. Snap a photo of what you make and submit your pic via the entry form below. We have another $100 in Heinen’s gift cards to give away and we’ll announce our winner or winners tomorrow. So here’s your challenge…
MAKE SOMETHING COOL – CRAFTS, TOWERS & SUPER FORTS
With gray skies and cool temps today we thought this would be a good day to create something cool! Paint a picture, make a craft, cook a recipe, build a fort or tower. Pull out the craft kit, puzzles, paints and paper that have been sitting in the closet. Grab all the sheets, blankets, boxes and pillows you can find lying around the house and build a giant fort! Have things like blocks, legos, lincoln logs and magna-tiles lying around the house? Build a tower that defies gravity or just looks really cool. Snap a photo and enter again for a chance to win. Did we mention that all are welcome to enter every day?
That’s all there is to it! Use this form to enter your photo and good luck!
If you’re unable to enter today’s contest, feel free to play along on Thursday or Friday.
Here are our remaining challenges:
- Thursday: SCIENCE FUN
Since we’re all going to be learning from home next week, we’d like to let YOU be the teacher. Find a (parent approved) science experiment you can do with items you already have at home. Complete the experiment and share a photo plus a caption that sums up what you learned. Enter your photo for a chance to win. We can’t wait to learn from YOUR mad science skills!
- Friday: PEOPLE & PETS
Think back to all of the favorite things you found to do at home this week and all of the photos you’ve captured. Is there someone who you loved spending a little extra time with? Did your mom, dad, brother, sister or pet make you smile this week? Snap a photo of that person, people or pet and send it it for a chance to win. If they don’t want their picture taken? Feel free to make them a mask or costume from things you have around the house and take their picture in disguise. Raid the dress-up chest, pull out pieces from past Halloween costumes. Have fun because anything goes and thanks for sharing!

And, if you need a new song stuck in your head, give the “Hand Wash Rap” a listen. It’s pretty catchy. Stay healthy and can’t wait to kick off our contest with you next week!
