Kids Contest: April Showers Challenge

I came across these lovely drawings and immediately thought how fun it would be to have the children create their own story to go along with these darling pictures.  Then I thought, why not share with you lovely families. And then I thought, why not make it a contest!

So here you go!

There are two different challenges to try your hand at.  Each challenge is broken up by age groups (so a three year old won’t have to compete with a 16 year old!).  Choose which challenge you’d like to join (or both!), download your Challenge Pack for your age group and follow the instructions to enter.  You’ll be emailing submissions to  All submissions are due by Friday, April 29th!

The first Challenge is the April Showers Writing Challenge.
You’ll be looking at 6 pictures and creating a story to go with them.  I’ll be choosing a winner from each age group.  Then I’ll use the winners stories to create a book that I will offer as a free download here!    So go ahead and click your age group to download your entry pack:

The second challenge is a drawing challenge.
You will be adding a 7th image to the series to show what you think might possibly happen next to this little rain soaked girl.  There is only one packet to download for all age groups.  When you email me your submissions, please make sure you include the child’s age so I know what group to put the drawing in!

I’m looking forward to seeing what you all send in!
