Competition time

Books and awards

As some of you know, I was supposed to be speaking at the Childcare and Education Expo next week at London Olympia. And while I fully understand and support the cancellation, I need something positive to look forward to.

With talk of school closures in Britain and lots of school closures around the world, my book literally is packed full of ideas you can do in the home for different ages of siblings, but you don’t need to buy my book to be involved in this competition. (You also don’t need to be suffering from school closures)

The four categories are:

Creative- 3D model of their favourite book

Writing- book review or their own story

Mathematics– using their favourite book, what maths can they do (let them think creatively- check out some of my blog posts for ideas) or baking and cooking works linked to their book

Drama- create a scene with their toys or act it out by themselves or make puppets/characters

The most creative CHILD LEAD ideas will win.

The age categories are:


Key stage one

Key stage two

If there is an uptake of Key stage three as I am fully aware you may have older siblings, then they can definitely get involved.

My book is for adults- parents and nannies or anyone who spends time with children. I will be giving the adult involved a book if their child wins, and an age appropriate prize for each child who wins.

If you are a nanny, please get permission from the parents to send pictures of the child.

Send their work in by March 31st to with their name, age and general location. Their work will be shared if they win and others might also be shared on a blog.

Winners will be announced in April! But as I don’t know the uptake of the competition please be patient with me, I’m a one woman Band (who works full time as a nanny)

Love to all,
