Get creative, banish holiday boredom and become a Summer Super Star!
Our Summer Super Stars campaign will give children of all ages and abilities the opportunity to enjoy a weekly craft activity, providing welcome respite for parents and a spark of inspiration for their children in the process.
Participating children will be entered into prize draws to win amazing Maped Helix goodies, as well as tickets to Alton Towers and a newly-released scooter from Micro Scooters.
Each week on Tuesday, we will share a craft idea using everyday items from around the home. Parents who post a photo of their children taking part on social media will be entered into a weekly prize draw.
All children that complete at least three of the six challenges, will be in with a chance of winning the grand prize.
Lianne Fletcher, Head of Marketing at Maped Helix, said: “As a parent myself, I know it can be challenging to keep young children entertained over the long summer holidays. There are only so many times you can visit the local park.”
“We have come up with some fantastic craft ideas to help parents keep their kids busy, have fun together and to encourage them to take some time away from screens.”
“We’re really looking forward to seeing all of the fantastic entries.”
The craft activities will include creating a paper aquarium, a rainbow lion and a cute octopus. Instruction guides will be posted on our website.
The weekly prize bundles will include some of our most popular and innovative stationery products, including Color’Peps Window Felt Pens, the Creativ Magical Tablet and the Creativ Aqua Art set.
We’ve also teamed up with Alton Towers to offer four tickets to the award-winning theme park each week.
The top prize draw, open to children who participate in three or more craft challenges, will include even more amazing Maped Helix stationery, as well as Micro Scooters’ brand new Cruiser LED, which is ideal for five to 12-year-olds and goes on presale on July 24th.
