Bargain Max launches arts and crafts competition for kids at home through lockdown

The UK online toy retailer Bargain Max has launched a nation-wide competition to look for the very best arts and craft talent from babies, toddlers and children.

The initiative is part of the retailer’s move to engage with and provide entertainment for kids and families stuck at home during the ongoing lockdown measures. Bargain Max is asking for families to enter their children’s homemade creations for the chance to win a Bargain Max gift voucher worth £100.

The competition welcomes anything craft related, whether that is painting, drawing, sewing, felting, origami, sculpture, or construction. A parent or guardian of hopeful entrants will be required to submit a photograph of their child’s homemade entry via either Facebook or Instagram.

To be within a chance of winning one of three prizes, each child’s creations will need to be original and fall into the wider remit of ‘arts and crafts’.

The competition is open for six weeks, with the closing date falling on May 18th 2020 at 23:59 PM. For families interested in entering their children’s creations, full competition terms and conditions can be found on the Bargain Max website here:
